Here is update on Valero Pt Arthur Coke Drum repairs & status of eventual coke drum replacements and the addition of a new coking unit 2009-10. (Like Valero – Both Motiva & Total Refineries are also planning expansions & coker additions at Port Arthur in the 2009-2011 time frame.)
 
Also in Bloomberg news – Valero completed repairs (52 days – loss 50MBD capacity) on Quebec Refinery (smaller of two) crude unit & is moving to full rates (215 MBD).
