Royal Dutch Shell Buys Land for “Cracker” Plant!

Date: June 16, 2015

After years of speculation and inaction it appears that the proposed multi-billion dollar “cracker” plant in Western Pennsylvania is on track for construction.  Today, Royal Dutch Shell filed a deed indicating purchase of land in Potter Township, Beaver County for $13.5 million. The plant will convert abundant natural gas harvested from the Marcellus Shale and Utica Shale fields of Pennsylvania into ethylene.  Ethylene is a feedstock used for petrochemical production.  Proponents of the project anticipate multiple chemical companies will locate to Pennsylvania to take advantage of the new plant.  Proponents also project thousands of jobs both during and after construction will be generated.
