What is the goal of this project?
To utilize the viable energy source of natural gas within the Marcellus Shale region to produce a product needed by industry within the Northeast.
Why put this project in the proposed location?
Many factors were considered in the selection of the proposed site. First, the location being centrally located and accessible through the existing roadway network is a positive for siting the project in the proposed location. Access to Interstate Route 80 will allow for distribution to markets in a large geographical area. Zoning within Rush Township of Industrial Enterprise will locate this facility where it can benefit the residents of Centre County and create jobs.
What are the environmental impacts of locating a gas-to-liquids facility at this site?
All potential impacts have been investigated and reviewed by the respective environmental agencies and it has been determined that no species are affected by the development of this project. All land use permits and approvals will be obtained and kept in compliance throughout the construction and operation of this facility.
