Here is update on the MAP Garyville – that moved rapidly from the planning stage and into the EPC stage last year. Although Fluor is doing the EPC services the ConocoPhillips will do the Coker Technology which was used on the first coking unit at Garyville. The two 30 ft coke drums at Garvyville still hold the title (but not for long) as being the largest diameter coke drums in the world.
The new coke drums for Garyville have already been ordered.
Marathon is moving forward on its coker addition plans for its Detroit and Cattlesburg asphalt refineries which plan to use Canadian Crude in their expansions. Although some news release have indicated that MAP is now looking at Canadian crude and possible coker expansion at Robinson nothing official has been released about it from MAP.
