Williams Partners (WPZ -3.7%; WMB -2.6%) says it has begun assessing damage caused by the explosion and fire that occurred at its Geismar, La., olefins plant earlier this month, although the gas pipeline owner says neither the full extent of the damage nor the time needed to make repairs is known. The plant remains shut down and the expansion work is temporarily suspended.
