Here is Motiva update : Petcoke Handling Contract & Motiva placement the of $7 Billion Expansion project’s 95 MBD, 6-drum, 375 ft., Coker (DCU-2) – which is nearly 50% larger than Motiva’s existing coker.
The OGJ article is true but somewhat over-stated showing Motiva @ +600MBD as being largest in the US – it should have said one of the largest since several other US refineries are close & have understated capacities in the 500-600MBD range (Exxon Baton Rouge 505MBD, Exxon Baytown 560MBD, Hovensa St Croix 500MBD, Total 450MBD, MAP Garyville 450MBPD COP Sweeny 450 MBD).
When Motiva becomes US largest Refinery at +600 MBD it, will still only be 6th largest on Global basis behind other Coking Refineries like Formosa Petchem Malaysia, XOM Singapore and Reliance India Refineries which are in the 650 – 1,200 MBD capacity range.
The Handling contract by KBR subsidiary (Recent Dec 2010 acquisition) Roberts & Schaefer was listed as $9.1 Million contract by the KBR version on their website. (see http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/morning_call/2011/05/kbr-wins-91m-contract-for-refinery.html ).
