According to media sources citing a company official, Shell Chemical Appalachia is reversing decision to recall all workers to the construction site of its PE plant in Monaca, Pennsylvania. This was due to the rising new coronavirus cases in the US.

The company had been gradually resuming construction works at its PE plant since halting works on March 18.

The project includes a 1.5 million tons/year ethane cracker as well as three PE units with a combined capacity of 1.6 million tons/year.

Media sources added that the company official did not make any comment on the start-up date of the project, which was originally due for early 2020.
