Shell to discuss possible shale gas plant

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Shell Chemical LP plans to hold meetings in western Pennsylvania to discuss the possibility of building a huge natural gas processing plant there.

Two public meetings are scheduled for Wednesday at the Shadow Lakes club in Hopewell, about 30 miles northwest of Pittsburgh. That's near the proposed plant site. One will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and another from 4 to 7 p.m.

Shell spokeswoman Kimberly Windon says the company wants to seek community input and share insights about where the project stands.

In early 2012 Shell chose the site for a possible ethane cracking plant, but cautioned a final decision would take years. It would convert ethane from bountiful shale natural gas into more profitable chemicals which are then used to produce plastics, tires and other products.
