The COP Billings Refinery is going to do 16% expansion (+10 MBD crude charge) by 2011 by replacing an old crude unit. This should also increase the coker charge & production rates.
 
This should only require tweaking the coker cycle times or minor debottlenecking & not modification/addition to coker unit –  unless there is also a significant shift to the Heavy Canadian Bitumen crudes ….. and even that will not be large change do to heavy crudes already in todays crude slate (ie: Montana & Wyoming sour crudes along with some Canadian Bitumen crude).
