Chevron puts plans for Pittsburgh facility on hold

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Chevron is putting on hold its plans for a large regional headquarters in the Pittsburgh suburbs.

The energy company has delayed a final decision on the office project to be located in Beaver County for the foreseeable future.

The company, based in San Ramon, California, paid more than $17 million to buy land for what was envisioned as a 61-acre project.

Chevron is one of the region's largest producers of natural gas from the Marcellus shale formation, with holdings in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia.
