TULSA, Okla.—Williams announced May 4 that it has secured another tieback to Discovery’s Keathley Canyon Connector (KCC) pipeline, providing deepwater natural gas infrastructure services to operator LLOG Exploration Offshore LLC., for its new Salamanca development in the Keathley Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Salamanca platform will handle production from the Leon and Castile fields and will be located 200 miles off the coast of Louisiana. Initial production is expected in second-quarter 2025. Salamanca will be the third deepwater production tieback to the KCC pipeline, which went into service in 2015 as a primary natural gas corridor through the Central Gulf of Mexico, and fifth overall tieback to the Discovery system over the past two years.
