Here is update by Reuters on Sinopec’s Gaoqiao coking refinery (has 2 coking units mostly anode grade) which will raise its crude capacity by 15% and replace an older 60 MBD crude unit with new 100 MBD distillation unit by April or May. But it sounds like downstream units will not be able to handle the higher crude charge rates (possibly the coking units?) and will stay a 206 MBD crude rates for rest 2010. Since Gaoqiao wasnt on list for a coker expansion sounds like one may be in the offing?
