The Polymer Alliance Zone’s (PAZ) mission is to assist in the retention, expansion and recruitment of polymer and polymer related companies to the seven-county region along the Ohio River as well as the State of West Virginia as a whole. PAZ is well positioned because of three key reasons:
* Feedstock Supply. PAZ is within the Marcellus and Utica Shale Gas region which is the most prolific natural gas producing formations in North America, which by 2040 will supply 40% of all the natural gas extracted in the United States. It also is an area rich in natural gas liquids (NGLs) that are the essential building blocks in the production of polyethylene and polypropylene. Projections are that NGL production will increase from 600 thousand barrels per day to 1.17 million barrels in 2040.
* Location. 70% of North American polyethylene demand is within an 8hour truck driving shift of PAZ and 77% of the polypropylene demand. Additionally, PAZ is within an 8-hour drive of 50% of the U.S. population and 30% of the Canadian population.
* Cost. Ethane costs are 32% lower in the PAZ region then the Gulf Coast of the United States and delivered polyethylene costs are 23% lower.
