From what I understand a bulk of thier projects were going to be funded by the sale of the 4 or 5 refineries they had on the block earlier this year. They’ve only been able to unload Krotz Springs to Alon USA and Aruba (or has that not gone through yet either) to PDVSA. The Hydrocracker project at Port Arthur is also directly tied to the Hydrocracker project at St. Charles. From what I’ve heard the St. Charles side of the work is ongoing, but the EPC is now Fluor instead of Matrix/CB&I. St. Charles was also in line to get some petrochem units like a paraxylene unit.
