Explosion at Chemical Plant in Geismar, LA

Published June 14, 2013 20:56

On the morning of Thursday, June 13, an explosion occurred at The Williams Companies, Inc. chemical plant in Geismar, Louisiana, which is located in Ascension Parish. The major explosion caused a fire at the plant, which reports have said claimed one life and injured more than 60 other workers. The plant is located about 20 miles from Baton Rouge, but nearby residents were apparently not harmed. Representatives of the company say that the blast happened at 8:37 a.m., and that the cause has not yet been identified as of this afternoon. Local authorities say that the Williams Companies plant makes ethylene and propylene, both of which are highly flammable gases in the petrochemical industry.

Our thoughts and support are with plant works and the surrounding Geismar community.
