    Placid Refining installs FCC reactor

    By OGJ editors
    HOUSTON, Aug. 7, 2008 — Placid Refining Co. installed a 230-ton fluid catalytic cracking reactor at its Port Allen, La., refinery, marking a major milestone in the company’s $300 million expansion.
    Both project construction and turnaround maintenance are progressing on schedule, said refinery manager Joey Hagmann. “We anticipate restarting the improved refinery near the end of August,” he said.
    Placid supplies 35-40% of the gasoline consumed in the Baton Rouge, La., area. When the full expansion is completed in 2010, the refinery’s current production of about 1 million gpd of gasoline will increase to about 1.5 million gpd, and diesel production will increase to nearly 1 million gpd from about 750,000 gpd.
