Why Your Next Facility Should be in The Pittsburgh Region
Customers: More than More than 2/3 of U.S. & Canadian PE & PP demand is located within 700 miles.

Pittsburgh Sits atop the Marcellus Shale which is already one of the largest reservoirs of natural gas in the world. The Utica Shale, which underlies the Marcellus, is only recently starting to be tapped, and is looking, by itself, to be the largest natural gas reservoir in the world.
