News Update – Motiva Pt Arthur Refinery (& Coker) Expansion – now in the EPC stage. Natco was awarded desalter technology & equipment supply. Good desalting is one best steps for coker feedstock prep & successful coker operations (assuming you don’t puke the rag/emulsion layers with surfactants back into the coker that is). 
 
Not sure why article mentions this project makes intrance into downstream market – Natco has made desalters for refining for some time and they are good units, often with leading edge developments?
 
Article also mentions Bechtel & Jacobs Engineering JV is doing the management for Engineering & Procurement (EPC) for project.
