Shell Chooses PA for New Refinery

Shell Chooses PA for New Refinery

Shell Oil has chosen Pennsylvania for the site of its new multi-billion-dollar petrochemical refinery.

Dan Carlson, Shell's General Manager of New Business Development, said today the company signed a land option agreement with Horsehead Corp. to evaluate a site near Monaca, about 35 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.

Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania had all offered Shell major tax incentives in their quests for the plant.

It will take a lifetime to get it into production once the eco-nuts start. My bet is,it never gets built and they move it next door.

Good for PA - bad for taxpayers. Just who do you think is going to pay for the "tax incentives"?

As a Republican i agree with the refinery being built in Pa. As a Republican I blame the Democrats for using our tax money as the incentive for them to do it.... Wait... Nevermind....

Since when does it have to be an "either/or" thing? I realize that the extreme environmentalists or "eco-nuts" as you call them and the worst of the oil companies practices get most of the media attention. It's like any other activity...hunting, timber, manufacturing, etc. - if responsible people work together (rather than those who stand on the sidelines, stay uninformed and do nothing but find fault)this can be a positive thing for all. It's those that always blindly want to make this a battle of jobs vs. the environment, Reps vs. Dems, etc. that stand in the way of progress. Both needs can be addressed - but it takes more effort than complaining does.

Get rid of the Dem AND Rep party. Make everyone that wants to be in office do so on their own merit and their own money.
