Babst Calland: Shell and Beaver County Commissioners Discuss Proposed Ethane Cracker Plant

By Matthew L. Lambach

The Pittsburgh Business Times reports that the Beaver County Board of Commissioners and representatives from Royal Dutch Shell met to discuss the next planning steps for the proposed cracker plant in Beaver County, Pennsylvania.  Although the meeting did not result in a final decision as to whether the company will build the plant, the commissioners and representatives discussed relocating a portion of a highway, power lines, a rail line and developing a dock.  Shell began demolition activities at the former Horsehead site in February.  It has also begun to secure feedstock supply for the plant by securing agreements with CNX Gas Co. LLC, Hilcorp Energy Co., Noble Energy Inc. and Seneca Resources Corp.
