The West Virginia Manufacturing Association expressed disappointment over Shell's decision to choose Pennsylvania as the possible location for an ethane cracker. "However, we applaud Pennsylvania's success and we look at Shell's announcement as a victory for the entire Appalachian Basin, especially Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia," said WVMA Chairman Joe Eddy. "Even after pipeline commitments, this leaves ample supply for additional cracker expansion as West Virginia continues to develop its Marcellus and Utica natural gas resources," Eddy added.
