PROCESS is performing a series of feasibility studies and preliminary process design work for a consortium in West Virginia called Invictus LLC. The company plans to build an Ethylene Cracker unit to produce Ethylene and other products at a site in WV. The plant would utilize the growing supply of wet shale gas reserves that are part of both the Marcellus and Utica fields. This gas contains a high concentration of ethane and other heavier hydrocarbons. The plant under consideration would include front end gas cleanup and separations, the Cracker unit, and associated downstream separations units.
