RE: Marathon: Coker Expansion


Charles Randall

MAP Detroit & Cattlesburg Coker Update & Table notice January 2006

Just released – Morgan Stanly released Marathon’s EVP presentation of expansion plans & slides 19 – 27 have details on the Garyville (not mentioned 35 MBD) new coker crude expansion, Detroit refinery new coker 20 MBD addition & Cattlesburg refinery 37 MBD new coker addition.   The slide 22 shows the increase in Canada syncrude & blended bitumen crude projections and what is driving a lot of the recent inland coker expansions for next 4-5 years.
The Marathon cokers are on my table for New Refinery Coker & Upgrade Coker Additons –  just 3 of the 28 in the EPC / Stratup stage – appearing in the next Argus Petcoke report in February 2006 with comments. There is also another table with 29 New Refinery Cokers & Upgrade Coker Additons in the Planning/Early EPC stages. These are expected to come online in the 2005-2011 time frame.
