Astra’s newly acquired (Jan 05) Crown Pasadena coking refinery seems slated for joint operation with Petrobras.
 
Like several other US low sulfur anode coke producers, the upgrades to meet EPA gasoline & diesel standards are enabling (and survival economics require) several to begin processing several heavy high sulfur crudes.
 
Astra seems to have settled on using the Brazilian undersea heavy crude fields for its sourcing.
