"I will do everything in my power to make sure that West Virginia is positioned to take full advantage of this opportunity," Tomblin said. "There's so many facets to [Marcellus Shale gas]. We know that he's working hard and trying to bring the cracker. We're supportive," said Steve White, director of the Affiliated Construction Trades Foundation in West Virginia.
