The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports today on the need for a petrochemical “cracker” plant in Pennsylvania or nearby. Liquid gas is plentiful in the Marcellus shale region. This liquid case is processed into plastic and other valuable commodities. Unfortunately, the closest processing plant is in Texas!! The nation’s transport pipeline system is not up to the task of transferring the valuable commodity at this time. Governor Corbett is working with Chevron to build a “cracker” or processing plant in Western Pennsylvania. However this plant is years away. Plans are on the table for new pipelines to get the liquid gas to market in Texas. This will also take time. In the meantime, Pennsylvania continues to experience growing pains in its natural gas boom regions.
The NATURAL GAS DRILLING TRIAL TEAM AT DLP is fighting daily for workers and innocent victims of gas drilling rig, pipeline construction, quarry and gas truck accidents. Remember–Injury??? CALL DLP.
