Laura A. Sugg has resigned from the Board, effective May 24, 2012. Sugg had served as a director on the general partner’s Board since December 2011.

Also effective May 24, Thomas F. Karam and James E. Scheel were elected as new members of the general partner’s Board.

Karam is an independent director and will serve on the Audit and Conflicts committees. He was formerly president and chief executive officer of Delphi Midstream Partners LLC. He joins H. Brent Austin and Alice M. Peterson as the independent directors on the general partner’s Board. H. Michael Krimbill is also a non-management director on the general partner’s Board.

Scheel serves as senior vice president of corporate strategic development for Williams and the general partner, where he is responsible for enterprise-level business development and customer relationship management. He joins Alan Armstrong, Don Chappel, Rory Miller and Randy Barnard as Williams-employee directors on the general partner’s Board.
