Shale Crescent USA to make trip to Japan

A Shale Crescent USA team is ready to leave for a business trip to Japan, according to an op-ed piece in the Parkersburg News and Sentinel by Greg Kozera of the Mid-Ohio Valley based economic development initiative. “We believe that this is a unique opportunity for our region,” Kozera writes, noting Japan will be a customer for liquefied natural gas from the new export terminal at Cove Point, Maryland that will use natural gas from the Utica and Marcellus shale plays. He also says the Mid-Ohio Valley has the natural gas liquids such as propane, butane and ethane that are building blocks for petrochemicals and are needed by Japan. For more, read the full story.
