Williams Partners (WPZ +0.8%) has brought back into service two of the five cryogenic processing units at its Opal, Wyo., gas processing plant that has been shut since it was damaged in an explosion and fire on April 23.

The restart brings 395M cf/day of capacity back online; the facility had been processing up to 1.1B cf/day and supplying up to 1B cf/day to interstate pipelines before the shutdown.

Still offline are Train 3, the biggest processing train and able to handle up to 390M cf/day, and Trains 4 and 5, each able to handle up to 350M cf/day.
