18:03 EDTWPZWilliams Partners Geismar plant consistently producing ethylene
Williams Partners announced its Geismar, La. olefins plant resumed consistent operations in late March and is expected to produce ethylene at the base plantís production rate through May. The process to achieve its full expanded production rate will be ongoing through June.

The transformer is being repaired at the original manufacturerís facility.
