CANONSBURG, Pa. — West Virginia University’s Energy Institute, along with assorted partners, presented it’s first findings to the public Tuesday to showcase the region’s ability to attract and support the petrochemical industry through the use of gas storage hubs.

Doug Patchen, the director of WVU Appalachian Oil and Natural Gas Consortium, said the study shows a bright potential future in the ability of West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio to support the petrochemical industry.

“There are some areas of small liquid storage in upstate New York and down in a couple places in the Appalachian Basin, but nothing of this scale,” Patchen said.
