Here is update on the Total Pt Arthur Deep Conversion Project & arrival of Total Coke Drums from Spain.
So Looks like Total Pt Arthur coker addition is going forward which will be welcome news to some of the construction as well as townsfolk with 12 new business started with it in mind. 
 
The drums are quoted as 4 @ 29 feet diameter & 20 feet tall (the length is mistake & perhaps diameter is too). Another report claim they are 32 feet wide and 12 stories high. The coker should be ~ a mid 2011 to early 2012 start up target given the 24-30 months for the constructin phase.
