CLEVELAND (AP) – Ohio’s private nonprofit development corporation says it’s giving one of the developers of a proposed ethane “cracker” plant $20 million.

JobsOhio spokesman Matt Englehart said in a statement Friday the money will be paid directly to a contractor for the developers to complete engineering and site-related preparation work.

The Appalachian region surrounding southeastern Ohio’s Belmont County has been eagerly awaiting a decision from PTTGC America LLC and partner Daelim Chemical USA about whether it will build a multi-billion dollar plant.

Officials say the facility would create thousands of construction jobs and hundreds of permanent positions.
