Shell Plans More Public Meetings on Proposed Ethane Cracker

Shell Chemicals is planning two public meetings to discuss its proposed ethane cracker plant in western Pennsylvania. The plan would convert natural gas liquids from the Marcellus Shale region into products used by the plastics industry.

Two identical meetings to provide “a brief overview of the proposed project” followed by a question-and-answer session will be held Thursday, November 13 at 11am and 5:30pm at the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center in Midland, Beaver County. Both meetings are expected to last approximately two hours.

Shell first announced the project in 2012, but may spend another one to two years deciding if the project will break ground.
