A private meeting between PTT Global Chemical, DAELIM and state and local leaders took place at the potential ethane cracker plant site in Dilles Bottom Tuesday.

Commissioner JP Dutton says it was just an informational meeting with PTT Global Chemical. He’s hoping a positive announcement will be made soon.

Dutton says the companies involved have been very open and easy to work with throughout the process. Members met with Governor Mike DeWine Wednesday morning.

Dirt is being moved on the acreage purchased by the two companies and the Ohio EPA has issued air and wastewater discharge permits.

There is no timetable on when or if a final investment decision could be made. Commissioner Dutton believes the meeting was another step closer.
