Director, External Affairs at Cabot Oil & Gas
Ethane cracker plants will bring endless economic opportunities to our region and now is the time to get them up and running.
The sooner we get ethane crackers up and running in our region, the sooner our state can increase the benefits it sees from the natural gas liquid supplies we have. In West Virginia, most of the resources being developed from our shale basins from natural gas is being used for heating homes, fueling vehicles and burning on our stoves.
However, we also have an immense supply of natural gas liquids that will be a critical player in efforts to diversify our economy in other industrial sectors, in addition to what the natural gas industry has already managed to accomplish.
