Here is update on India’s BPCL Refinery & new Coker 1.36 MM mtpy (coker charge) which has completed last two units – Hydrogen generation unit and the coke drum package and so it should finally be fully commisioned by Feb 15, 2011!
I believe the Coker Technology was licensed by ABB Lummus (now CBI-Lummus). As I understand the petcoke will be used in capative power plant using CFBC type boiler. India Naftogaz India was awarded the EPCC contract in Jul 2007. The Bina 6mm TPA(120MBD) and $2.6 B plant plans started in 1999 and was expected to complete in Sept 2010 but ran into delays.
The completion & commissioning of BPCL’s Bina Refinery was condition for the next project to proceed – The 7 MM TPA Lohagara Refinery which will also have a coker and share crude P/L with Bina (based on last / May 2009 update).
