According to media reports, Royal Dutch Shell PLC will start the construction of a new petrochemical complex in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which is estimated to cost $6 billion.

The reports revealed that the company decided to make an investment on building a new complex, which will include an ethylene cracker, last June. The new facility will use low-cost ethane from shale gas producers in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia and have a production capacity of 1.6 million tons/year of PE.

The reports indicated that the company is expecting to start construction towards the end of 2017 and start operations in ten years.
