Williams Olefins LLC, announced that it has received the investigation findings from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration ("OSHA") related to OSHA's investigation of the June 13, 2013 incident at Williams' Geismar facility. Company officials are reviewing OSHA's findings.

"Williams cooperated in a full and transparent manner to support OSHA's investigation, and we are in the process of reviewing the analysis," said John Dearborn, senior vice president, NGL and Petchem Services.

"In addition to conducting our own internal incident investigation, we are committed to learning from OSHA's report to further enhance safety at the Geismar plant and across our organization."

The company noted that prior to the June 13, 2013 incident, the Geismar Olefins plant achieved an exceptional and long-standing safety record with no lost-time accidents having occurred at the plant since 2009.

"Safety and the protection of employees and communities in which Williams does business is, and always has been, our number one priority," Dearborn continued. "We are committed to safely completing the rebuild and expansion work now underway, and to bringing the expanded plant into safe and reliable operations for the benefit of the plant's employees, contractors, the community and customers."

Williams Olefins LLC is now executing on a plan to rebuild, turnaround and expand the Geismar Olefins plant by April, 2014.
