Williams to increase California ethanol supply

Williams Bio-Energy LLC, a unit of Williams Energy, said last Thursday it has agreed to supply ethanol to California by the fourth quarter of 2001.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Tuesday of last week denied California's request to be waived from provisions of the 1990 Clean Air Act requiring the use of additives to make cleaner-burning gasoline.

The decision means California will need about 580 million gallons of ethanol for reformulated gasoline (RFG) oxygenates in 2004, because the state banned the alternative additive methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) by Dec. 31, 2002.

``We're bringing supply to California more than a year ahead of the MTBE phase-out, allowing refiners to switch from MTBE to ethanol ahead of schedule,'' Williams Bio-Energy LLC vice president Ron Miller said in a written statement.

Under the recently signed agreement, Williams will house 15,000 barrels of ethanol at Kinder Morgan Energy Partners storage facility in Carson, California, in order to supply the Los Angeles and San Diego markets.

Williams plans transport ethanol to the storage facility and directly to refiners by large unit rail shipments and ocean vessels.
