Here is update on the Cheyenne Refinery Crude Unit that was shutdown due fire July 28, 2010, it had been at reduced rates.
The Cheyenne Refinery also had coker fire in Dec 2007.
Frontier Cheyenne completed its $67MM Refinery & Coker expansion in 2nd Half 2007, and coker charge increased from 10MBD to 14.5 MBD at 52MBD refinery.
<But I think both OGJ & EIA still show 19MBD coker charge at Frontier’s El Dorado 135 MBD (previously 110MBD) refinery after its Refinery & Coker expansion (drum replacement) in 2007/08>.
