Here is fairly good article & updated project/ coker items (ie Sumitomo made drums, only 2 drums @ 24X100 …..  think full project might had much larger unit than $50MM coke drum replacements going in.  They mention the 1992 coker was $150 MM.

 
Also mentioned couple places the $500M upgrade was put on hold soon after Mulva’s visit in 2006 – methinks it may have something to do with larger push towards Bakken crude fields development than just tying into more Heavy CA Bitumen crude perhaps, since Bakken is mentioned couple times in same interview / article.
 
Also mentions COP decision to sell $10B in assets and that just COP’s portion of Syncrude netted it $4.65B already (think sale of Russian assets already mentioned will take it most rest way to that goal).
