HOUSTON – Williams has reportedly landed a deal from Chevron and Total to move natural gas from the Anchor field development project in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico to an existing pipeline system.

According to multiple online reports, Williams will develop an underwater pipeline to move the gas from Chevron and Total’s Anchor project, which is located 140 miles off the coast of Louisiana in the Green Canyon area.

Under the deal, Williams will transport Anchor’s produced gas to the Discovery pipeline system, of which Williams is 60% owner and operator.

The gas will then be transported to Discovery’s processing plant in Larose, Louisiana, and the natural gas liquids will be fractionated and marketed at Discovery’s Paradis plant in Louisiana.

Anchor is expected to come online in the first half of 2024, Williams said.
