West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin told state business leaders he was continuing to work to bring an ethane cracker plant to the state, saying he believes the state still has a good chance to attract one.
"We are working every day to make that happen, and I am convinced it will happen," Tomblin said in late August.
Tomblin was the keynote speaker during the opening day of the state Chamber of Commerce's annual Business Summit, taking place at The Greenbrier.
Tomblin said the development of the natural gas industry, including gas produced from the Marcellus and Utica shales, along with the processing of their associated liquids like ethane and propane, still has "enormous potential" for the state.
