The attached news release is update on the upgrade of the Flint Hills Corpus Refinery West Plant to handle more heavy sour crudes and still produce LS fuels. The Corpus Refinery West Plant also replaced the coke drums at existing coking unit late 4Q07 1Q08. Foster Wheeler was awarded the contract back in 2005.
As article mentioned Koch purchased the Kerr-McGee Southwest Refinery in 1995 and merged it with its existing Corpus refinery which then became the Flint Hills Refinery East Plant.
