Williams' Northwest Pipeline LLC Prices Private Debt Issuance


Northwest Pipeline LLC ("Northwest"), a wholly owned subsidiary of The
Williams Companies, Inc. (NYSE:WMB), announced that it has priced an
offering of $250 million of its 4.000 percent Senior Notes due 2027
through an add-on to its existing issue.

The $250 million in aggregate principal amount of 4.000 percent Senior
Notes due 2027, scheduled to be delivered on Aug. 24, 2018, were priced
at an offering price of 98.558 percent of par.

Northwest intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to repay the
intercompany debt owed to Williams in connection with the repayment of
Northwest's 6.05% senior notes at their maturity on June 15, 2018 and
any excess net proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes.

The notes are being offered pursuant to certain exemptions from

may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or
an applicable exemption from such registration requirements.

the notes in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, sale or
solicitation would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification
under the securities laws of such jurisdiction.
