Williams Announces Organizational Changes within Its Pipeline System


HOUSTON (JR) -- The Williams Companies Inc. announced Tuesday a number of organizational changes toward a goal of transforming its five interstate natural gas pipeline systems into a more seamless national transportation company that can be more successful in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

"The changes we are announcing (Tuesday) give us the maximum opportunity to achieve our goals of providing the highest level of customer service while becoming the top provider of natural gas transportation and storage service by any measure of efficiency and effectiveness," said Brian E. O'Neill, president and chief executive officer of Williams' five interstate natural gas pipeline systems.

O'Neill said the five pipelines have a goal of reorganizing "in a way that allows us to function as a single national pipeline company, rather than five independent systems." Williams' five gas systems and their headquarters are: Kern River and Northwest Pipeline, Salt Lake City; Williams Natural Gas, Tulsa; Transco, Houston; and Texas Gas, Owensboro, Ky. Each currently is independently structured. O'Neill announced the following changes effective July 1: The pipelines will create a new shared services organization. David Young, currently senior vice president and chief operating officer of Williams Learning Network, will become senior vice president and general manager of shared services, reporting to O'Neill. Young joined Williams in 1985 and held a number of management positions at Williams Pipe Line Company and Williams Natural Gas before moving to the Learning Network in 1995. Reporting to Young will be Nick Bacile, currently vice president of finance and controller at Transco; Ron Mucci, currently vice president of customer service at Northwest Pipeline; and Bob Bahnick, currently vice president of operations and engineering at Transco. Bacile will be the vice president and chief financial officer with responsibility for the five pipeline systems' accounting and financial functions. Mucci will be vice president of business practices and information systems and chief information officer. Bahnick will be vice president of technical services, responsible for all engineering, construction and related functions. Bill Burton, current director of human resources and administration at Williams Natural Gas, will be vice president of human resources for all five pipelines, reporting to O'Neill.
