The new Shell Cracker plant in Beaver County will manufacture plastics by extracting the chemical components in natural gas, but it will also manufacture jobs for western Pennsylvania, even for counties far from Beaver County.  That was the message this morning at an event at the Kovalchick Complex, where Indiana County officials and others interested in the economic impact of the cracker plant gathered.    Indiana County Commissioners’ Chairman Mike Baker said afterward that the meeting highlighted a tremendous opportunity for the region.   Baker added that while the Cracker plant promises a boost to the economy, its full potential can only be realized if counties such as ours develop a capable workforce.   David Brocious of the Marcellus Shale Coalition said that the most successful counties will be proactive in providing a workforce for the cracker plant and support companies.   Even moderator Bill Flanagan of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development said the cracker plant won’t be built for years, but now is the time to prepare for it.     The event was staged by by the Indiana County Center for Economic Operations.
