Welcome to MMDC 2018

Now in its seventh year, the Marcellus and Manufacturing Development Conference plays host to companies interested in locating new facilities or expanding existing operations in the state, and provides companies and industry leaders the opportunity to gain an expanded understanding of the potential for ethane and ethylene related product development in West Virginia.

Conference attendees learn about West Virginia’s advantages, including tax incentives, environmental permitting, workforce development, availability of employees and site options, and have the opportunity to network with West Virginia leaders, manufacturers and suppliers.

From the President

Appalachia is well situated for a regional extraction-consumption strategy for the Utica, Marcellus, and associated shale gas plays; a strategy that focuses on long-term opportunity.   

The 2018 MMDC explores the infrastructure needed to take advantage of the abundance of shale resources in the region, challenges and opportunities for growing ethane related exports, and takes an in depth look at why our region is an ideal place to invest in the diversify our energy and manufacturing economies. We’ll share comparative analysis, discuss infrastructure needs including pipeline construction, as well as the development of an Appalachian Storage Hub for ethane reserves, and hear updates on the status of these projects.  

Infrastructure investment can create a readily available single source supply of ethane for consumers, predictability in pricing, and distribution channels that promote a broader geographic use and investment that could benefit the businesses and citizens of Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
