According to media reports, Shell announced its final decision to build a proposed petrochemical complex in Pennsylvania, USA.

The company will build an ethane cracker with a capacity of 1.5 million tons/year of ethylene and three PE units with a combined production capacity of 1.6 million tons/year and will secure ethane feedstock from the nearby Marcellus and Utica shale formations. Construction work is expected to begin in 18 months and the new site is expected to begin commercial production early in the next decade.
