Williams Partners' distributable cash flow (DCF) from partnership's operations increased 19.6% YoY to $378 million, driven by $61 million growth in fee-based revenues and $50 million lower maintenance capital expenditures.  Alan Armstrong, CEO of Williams Partners' general partner, commented, "During the quarter, 9 percent growth in our fee-based business, primarily in the Northeast U.S., and our continued focus on cost control across our businesses, partially offset the challenges of the unplanned downtime at our Geismar olefins plant and the lower NGL margins. In fact, DCF grew 20 percent year over year despite the limited contributions from last years' Geismar acquisition."
