PTTGC America and Daelim have contracted with a local business for the removal of trees of more than 3 inches in diameter in an area of approximately 140 acres at the the site of the proposed petrochemical complex in Belmont County.

The tree removal will be completed prior to March 31 to ensure that no Indiana Bats are impacted, in accordance with the federal Endangered Species Act.

PTTGCA and Daelim continue to work toward a final investment decision; no decision has been made at this time.
