Here is Announcement on New Coker additions – several versions out there but most left out coker additions.
Essar Vadinar Refinery cokers a Phase I expansion ~debottleneck & add coker by 2010 and increase capacity & Phase II coker when a new set of distillation & all secondary units are added. The basic engineering is done and the expansion plans have been approved for $6Billion to ~ Tripple the Refinery capacity from 220MBD to 700MBD.
The newly commissioned Vadinar refinery (Nov 2006) with a 220 MBD (10.5 million mtpy) capacity is just now finishing up on addition of FCCU & DHDS units which will be operational and enable the refinery to reach the full capacity rates (been operating at 7.5 million mtpy).
