Williams Partners has announced that its expanded Geismar olefins plant has started manufacturing ethylene for sale.
 
“This is a significant milestone achievement in our effort to restore reliable operations at our plant for the benefit of our customers, employees, contractors and the community,” said John Dearborn, Williams’ senior vice president of NGL & Petchem Services.
 
“I want to once again recognise our Geismar team for their dedication and perseverance throughout this complex rebuild and expansion effort,” Dearborn said. “We will now turn our efforts to reaching full production rates on the base plant and shortly thereafter ramping up the plant to the expanded production capacity of 1.95 billion pounds of ethylene per year.”
 
Williams Partners’ share of the total 1.95 billion pounds capacity is approximately 1.7 billion pounds per year. Williams owns controlling interest in the Louisian-based Geismar plant and is the general partner of Williams Partners.
 
Williams Partners is an industry-leading master limited partnership with operations across the natural gas value chain from transportation and processing to petrochemical production of ethylene, propylene and other olefins.
