December 15 hearing on Shell cracker permits
PIOGA members are urged to show their support for Shell's petrochemical facility in Potter Township, Beaver County. There is significant vocal opposition to the project, imuch of it from out of the area, along with a great deal of misinformation. It's important that we turn out and help to communicate the many ways the facility will benefit the region's economy.

Please join us on December 15 as the Department of Environmental Protection holds a public meeting from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m. followed by a public hearing from 7 until 9 at Central Valley High School in Monaca regarding both the department's intent to issue a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit amendment as well as its intent to authorize a modification to the existing Air Plan Approval for the Shell Chemical Appalachia Petrochemicals Complex.

Those who want to testify in person should contact DEP's Nora Alwine at 412-442-4137. Each individual will have up to 3 minutes to present testimony. More information about these pending authorizations, as well as other documents relating to the Shell facility can be found here.

Chapter 78a Commonwealth Court injunction implementation advisory

The Marcellus Shale Coalition has developed an advisory for its members to clarify the injunction issued by the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania on November 8 regarding the Chapter 78a regulations being challenged by the MSC and has authorized PIOGA to provide the advisory to our members. The status of the injunction can change if DEP appeals the injunction, and the MSC will update this advisory if any changes occur.

Please consult with your own counsel if you have specific questions about your company's operations relating to the injunction.
