Does anyone know the startup date on Turkey’s Tupras Izmit Refinery coker? I know Foster Wheeler did the 2007 Clean Fuels project (see FW Spring-Summer Publication 2007 ~pg52) and I believe they did the 2 drum coker ‘ec”nology. The resid/coker project started construction in 2006 and was to complete 2007-2008.
Tupras March 2008 financial report looks as though it is already operating and making the 600 kmtpy of petcoke, but there are other reports that it will not be completed until 4Q2008.
Please let me know if anyone has confirmation on completion/startup.
