    NEW YORK, Nov 2 (Reuters) – ConocoPhillips Corp. said it is re-evaluating the deep conversion project at its 260,000 barrel per day refinery in Wilhelmshaven, Germany.
    “It could make sense to defer some projects,” Chief Executive Jim Mulva told attendees of the Merrill Lynch Energy Conference in New York.
    Mulva said the the project — which includes expansion of a coker — is being re-evaluated as economics shift. ConocoPhillips bought the refinery from Louis Dreyfus in February 2006.

    Tesoro Corporation’s Golden Eagle Refinery in Martinez, California starts on their coker expansion this summer with project completion expected in January 2008.
    The modification project will employ a delayed coking process developed and licensed by ConocoPhillips, who also designed the specifications for a 44t Konecrane which spans 142ft and operates a 25 cubic yard mechanical bucket with a 3,000t per day handling rate.

    Here is update on the MAP Garyville – that moved rapidly from the planning stage and into the EPC stage last year.  Although Fluor is doing the EPC services the ConocoPhillips will do the Coker Technology which was used on the first coking unit at Garyville.  The two 30 ft coke drums at Garvyville still hold the title (but not for long) as being the largest diameter coke drums in the world.
    The new coke drums for Garyville have already been ordered.
    Marathon is moving forward on its coker addition plans for its Detroit and Cattlesburg asphalt refineries which plan to use Canadian Crude in their expansions. Although some news release have indicated that MAP is now looking at Canadian crude and possible coker expansion at Robinson nothing official has been released about it from MAP.
