CEO perspective

Alan Armstrong, President and CEO, made the following comments:

"Williams third quarter adjusted EBITDA growth of 15% demonstrates our ability to capture upside on top of the steady growth of our base business. Williams is thriving as demand for our critical services continues to expand, and we are well positioned to excel despite the macro-economic concerns for the broader markets. Our natural gas focused strategy and long-term approach to business is built to capture upside and at the same time weather commodity price down cycles like we saw in 2020. As an organisation, we are energised by the opportunity to serve this growing demand for clean, secure and affordable energy.

"With the winter heating season now upon us, the need for secure natural gas supplies on a global scale has never been more pronounced, especially as the crisis in Ukraine continues to wreak havoc on energy markets and the global economy, which depends on access to affordable energy. The US, with our abundance of natural gas, is well positioned to bring energy security to nations in need while at the same time reducing emissions, so long as we have comprehensive energy policies that allow us to build the infrastructure to connect these low cost supplies to growing demand here at home and abroad. If we don’t deal with permitting reform, we will continue to see higher utility bills at home and the unnecessary destruction of our allies' economies."

Armstrong added, “Williams is executing a number of high-return growth projects across our portfolio to meet growing long-term natural gas demand domestically and around the world. As we bring this critical infrastructure on line to meet growing demand, we expect to see continued earnings growth and value creation for our shareholders."
