He said the project enjoys many "strategic advantages", including proximity to market and low-priced feedstock.

During a Monday news conference at the Ohio Statehouse, Kasich formally announced the partnership between Thailand-based PTT Global Chemical and South Korea's Daelim Industrial Co., a pairing initially reported by The Intelligencer on January 31. "Building this massive ethane cracker plant here will be a game-changer, not only for Eastern Ohio, but for the entire state, as it will create so many new opportunities for economic development".

Initially, the estimated cost of the cracker plant to be built along the Ohio River was $5.7 billion. State Senator Troy Balderson of Zanesville joined Kasich for the announcement. "I am extremely hopeful, hopeful that within a relatively short period of time, we can come back to this room and make a final announcement".

Belmont County commissioners J.P. Dutton, Josh Meyers and Mark Thomas also attended the event. He said PTT and Daelim are being "diligent and thorough" in their research about the development.

"I hope we will hear a decision in the not too distant future", he added.

Ohio Governor Kasich made the announcement Monday afternoon. "We thank both companies for their continued efforts and all those at JobsOhio who are working tirelessly to bring this project to fruition". "One, this adds a second world-class company to this project.With the addition of Daelim, the production, the output from this plant will almost double". After the companies complete their negotiations, they must secure financing.

In what JobsOhio President John Minor called another key step "toward the finish line", PTTGC has also executed an option to buy the remainder of the almost 500-acre site along the Ohio River where the cracker would be built.

PTT Chief Operating Officer Kongkrapan Intarajang said officials would make use of the local resources, likely powering the plant with natural gas.

A report over the weekend suggested that Ohio's job growth for the last two years under Republican Gov. John Kasich was only slightly better than in the last two years under Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland.

Also present for the news conference were Ohio Sen.
