Here is update on PDVSA selling its JV 50% in German BP Gelsenkirchen coking refinery (~33MBD coker with capcity of 475 Kmtpy green petcoke where ~1/3 as fuel & 2/3 as Anode petcoke with some anode calcined at refinery ~120-150 Kmtpy).
Earlier this year BP signed an agreement with KBR to sell its Hydrocracker/Combi-Cracker VCC technology globally in Jan 2010. BP gained the technology when it acquired Veba who had a 3.5MBD commercial pilot plant which was built at Gelsenkrichen by Veba in 1980’s. Veba formed the JV with PDVSA in 1983.
