Update on Frontier’s $140 MM El Dorado Crude expansion – that will add another 10 MBD of heavy crude capacity that raises the 110 MBD to 120 MBD for the refinery – not mentioned but it will also add additional coker charge as well. The El Dorado refinery in 2Q 2003 added +8 MBD capacity ($16MM expansion) that also added +2.2 MBD of coker charge ($10MM expansion). The project is expected to complete in March/1Q 2008, in time for a Turnaround to tie-in the Greenfield portions.
 
The $140 MM expansion for El Dorado not only includes the Crude & Vac tower replacement but a 24MBD Diesel HDS & 35 MMSCFD Hydrogen Unit (CB&I is doing the project work on all the units).
