November 15, 2022 – Shell Chemical’s Beaver County petrochemical complex is now operational, the company announced on Tuesday, capping a decade of anticipation.

The project has enjoyed the support of several governors and was granted more than $1.6 billion in public incentives. The company expects to ramp up to its full annual production goal of 3.5 billion pounds of polyethylene pellets by the second half of next year.
