Here is update on the Federated Cooperative Limited’s (FCL) – CCRL Regina Coking Refinery Expansion ($1.9 B), it looks like the Board has approved the project, but the online date has slipped by +one year to 2012 (as have most upgrader, refinery & coker projects). Mustang Engineering is doing the FEED work on the CCRL project.
The expansion is primarily adding FCC complex to expand the capacity by 30% – but the additional heavy crude charge will have impacts on petcoke quality & production levels (as did in the 2003 expansion & Upgrader integration).
The additional crude will come from the NewGrade integrated Upgrader located adjacent to the refinery – a $400M deal with Crown Investment Corp (CCI) by FCL in Sept. 2007 gave FCL 100% ownership to NewGrade upgrader (which happened at the same time as their CCRL expansion announcement – only $1.0 B cost at that time).
