Gov. Corbett Says Shell Not Considering Alternate Locations for Cracker

Following a speech at the Marcellus Utica Midstream Conference in Pittsburgh this morning, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett said that Royal Dutch Shell’s recent decision to delay a final commitment to building an ethane cracker plant in Beaver County does not mean that Shell is considering alternate locations for the plant. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Gov. Corbett said “[i]f they’re going to build it, they’re going to build it here,” and that the extension can be attributed to “dotting I’s and crossing T’s.”
