Here is update on Reliance Refinery & Coker expansion which is ready start end November but may be delayed until 1Q09 due refining margins. The new 580 MBD addition will ~ double refining capacity of existing 660 MBD plant and the new coking unit’s 8 drum unit was designed by Foster Wheeler who dealso signed the first coking unit in 1998 – also an 8 drum unit (at time worlds largest coker).  The new petcoke production will eventually feed a gasifier to make SNG but some intitial volume will be sold into the fuel coke market until the gasifier is completed.
