Yes – this is about 6 month lag from where it was susposed to be but then a lot of construction and drum orders are lagging that much.  Foster Wheeler is doing the drum replacement for Flint Hills along with the drum structure & blowdown system on the No3 coker / coker island – the drums are being replaced on “End of Life” requirements but will be larger than the existing ones. This is part of the Pinebend expansion that will add ~50MBD Heavy crude capacity to plant & push it up to 330 MBD total charge – the plant is on almost a 100% diet of Canadian Bitumen crudes.
 
Flint Hills also replaced the Corpus Refinery Coke drums in 2007.
