Fire Still Burning at Wyoming Natgas Facility

April 24, 2014

Fire is still burning at the Williams Cos Inc's natural gas processing plant in Opal, Wyoming, that exploded on Wednesday afternoon, a company spokeswoman said on Thursday.

The fire broke out at 2 p.m. MDT (2000 GMT) on Wednesday and led to the evacuation of a nearby town.

Williams shut natural gas gathering pipelines that feed the facility late on Wednesday. The lines remained shut on Thursday, interrupting nearly 1 billion cubic feet of natural gas supply, company spokeswoman Michele Swaner said.
