Williams is the only non-integrated merchant supplier of ethylene to the market. The Geismar, Louisiana facility annually produces approximately 1.95 billion pounds of ethylene and Williams Partners’ share of the total capacity of the expanded plant is approximately 1.7 billion pounds per year. In addition, the plant, located just south of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, also produces 114 million pounds of polymer grade propylene, 13 million gallons per year of crude butadiene and 14 million gallons year of Debutanized Aromatic Concentrate (DAC).  The expansion, fully operational, is about 57,000 barrels per day (BPD) of ethane for 100 percent feed to the plant. The expanded capacity of the plant increases our share of the plant’s ethylene production by approximately 50 percent.
