Governor Tom Corbett is making his first comments today about $1.6 billion in tax breaks he’s proposing to help bring Shell Oil’s new multi-billion dollar cracker plant to Beaver County.
The Mon River is the water source for hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvania American Water customers. Next month, that water will be undergoing a new treatment process involving chloramine, a mixture of chlorine and a smaller amount of ammonia.
It’s one more major example of just how huge this Marcellus Shale boom is becoming. Shell Oil may build something called an ethylene cracker – a major petro-chemical plant – in our region. The plant is expected to spawn a whole new industry – producing ethylene – a by-product of shale drilling to make plastics.
