Williams Partners (WPZ +0.8%) says it delivered a record amount of natural gas on its 10,200-mile Transco interstate gas pipeline to meet demand driven by recent cold weather in markets on the U.S. Eastern Seaboard.

Transco delivered a record-breaking 10.83M dekatherms in its market area stretching from Mississippi to New York City on Dec. 12, which represents enough gas to heat nearly 50M U.S. homes.

Two recently completed expansions of Transco enabled the new record.
