Fire out at Texas natural gas processing plant, cause sought

ORLA, Texas (AP) — A fire that burned for days at a West Texas natural gas processing plant is out as investigators try to determine what sparked the blaze.

An Anadarko Petroleum Corporation official had no timeline Tuesday on when the Ramsey unit near Orla will reopen.

Two people were slightly hurt when fire broke out last Thursday at the plant a few miles south of the Texas-New Mexico line.

Anadarko spokesman John Christiansen says the fire was extinguished Monday. He says the next step is to work with regulators to determine the cause and assess damage.

Christiansen says the priority will be to safely repair the plant, to resume service to customers, and to complete previously planned expansion projects.

The plant is owned by Western Gas Partners and operated by The Woodlands-based Anadarko.
