Tulsa-based Williams closing Oklahoma City office, move jobs

TULSA, Okla. – Tulsa-based Williams Companies, Inc. will close its office in Oklahoma City and plans to move most of the 400 jobs to Tulsa.

The energy and pipeline company said in a statement Wednesday that most of the 400 employees are expected to move to the Tulsa headquarters, while some jobs will be eliminated. Williams said a severance package will be offered to employees who lose their jobs.

Williams said employees should learn by the end of January what the impact will be on their specific jobs.

The company says the consolidation is part of Williams’ ongoing reorganization and centralization efforts and the Oklahoma City office will close by July 30, 2017.
