RECENT PROJECT

Shell To Build A New Petrochemicals Complex In Beaver County

Shell Chemical Appalachia LLC has made a final investment decision to build an ethylene with a polyethylene derivatives unit in Potter Township, Beaver County. The complex will use low-cost ethane from shale gas to produce 1.6 million tons of polyethylene per year. With the site’s proximity to gas feedstock, the complex, and its customers, will benefit from shorter and more dependable supply chains, compared to supply from the Gulf Coast. More than 70% of North American polyethylene customers are within a 700-mile radius of the site. Up to 6,000 construction workers will be employed during the building of the new facility and an expected 600 permanent employees will work at the complex, when it is completed.
