Here is update on Suncor problems Ridley terminal & petcoke. It seems Ridley won on requiring Suncor use antifreeze agent to handle frozen petcoke? Guess other petcoke company would have be Husky Llyodminster fuel coke (or perhaps some fluid coke from Syncrude)?
Suncor & CNRL both had problems staying up with new cokers so think terminal might be more overloaded with coal trying to get exported at todays prices & as larger volume/more stable terminal product may be issue. I also thought the last Suncor coker expansion also had power CFB project that took large part new petcoke production make power/steam for SAGD process &/or converted some old gas fired boiler to use petcoke?
Argus Petcoke 2010 conf – Derek Allen ppt on Suncor Logistics for petcoke moving thru Ridley (went back & took quick look.) Shows Ridley has thaw sheds & rotary dumper at Ridley. Also showed that about ~2400 mtpd petcoke goes to boiler for Steam in Suncor SAGD process and about ~700 kmtpy gets exported via BC Terminal.
So. ……. as mentioned with issues Husky/CNRL/Suncor on petcoke prod this year sort points that Ridley is using antifreeze push back on Suncor tons go after higher paying coal or perhaps non-contract petcoke tons it seems to me.
