Confirmation that the Khartom refinery coker is operating (was one of the 2005 holdovers on Pace Global new coker addition list) – the 1 mm tpy  mentioned in news item refers to coker charge (~20 MBD) not petcoke production. The plans, after completing Phase I expansion, are to also install a cogen completing by 2007.
 
The coker construction completed in first quarter of 2005 and it was originally expected to be online before 2006, but confirmation was not available. The refinery took its scheduled 2 year maintenance shutdown in August 2005 and competed most of the expansion before the end of the year.  The new reforming unit has just been completed and made its first product in June 2006.
 
The expansion of the refinery from 70 MBD to 100 MBD allows it to shift from domestic Nile Blend crude a medium heavy  sweet crude to process the new high acid Dar Blend crude.
