Williams Partners L.P. (NYSE:WPZ) today reported that it is temporarily rerouting natural gas flow from its Lathrop Compressor Station while inspections and repairs take place following a flash fire on Thursday, March 29. The station is located near Springville in Susquehanna County, Pa.

Approximately 200 MMcf/d of natural gas is being diverted to the Wilcox Compressor Station for compression.

Williams (NYSE: WMB) owns 72 percent of Williams Partners, including the general partner interest. The management of Williams Partners and Williams confirmed that the financial impact of the fire is immaterial to their financial condition, liquidity and, respectively, the distributions and dividends they pay to unitholders and shareholders.

Preliminary results of the investigation showed that emergency shutdown equipment worked properly to isolate and minimize the incident and that emergency procedures were immediately activated. Most of the damage occurred to the exterior of the station, while the majority of the equipment and flooring inside the building remain undamaged.

Williams would like to thank the local emergency responders, and the state police for their highly professional assistance.
