The continued closure of Asphalt refineries combined with those installing cokers will put pressure / decrease coker margins going forward.
 
This assumes they actually operate the unutilized new coker capacity – ie US @ same coke production levels since 2004 despite +5MM new capacity. 
 
Espcially in light of growing demand in both Asphalt & Fuel Oil at time when market surplus and base supplies have been removed in a global pattern.
