Williams Partners L.P. (NYSE: WPZ) today announced unaudited third-quarter 2013 net income attributable to Williams Partners L.P. of $279 million, or $0.52 per common limited-partner unit, compared with net income of $290 million, or $0.38 per common limited-partner unit for third-quarter 2012. Earnings per common limited-partner unit were favorably impacted by a significant increase in waived incentive distribution rights, which resulted in a shift of net income from the general partner to the limited partners. Prior-period results throughout this release have been recast to include the results of the Geismar olefins production facility acquired from Williams in November 2012 and to reflect the revised segment reporting resulting from the organizational restructuring effective Jan. 1, 2013.

The $11 million decrease in third-quarter net income was primarily due to $76 million lower olefin margins from lost production at the Geismar olefins plant as well as $49 million (or 29%) lower natural gas liquids (NGL) margins driven by continued ethane rejection. The decrease was offset by a $61 million increase in transportation and gathering and processing fee revenues as well as $19 million in lower costs in the quarter. Third-quarter 2013 also benefited from $50 million of income recognized associated with initial insurance recoveries related to the Geismar incident.
