By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Sept. 13 -- BP Oil Refineria de Castellon SA awarded a detailed engineering, procurement, and construction supervision contract to Foster Wheeler Iberia SA for a delayed coker at BP's 104,500 b/cd Castellon, Spain, refinery.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The planned 20,000 b/sd coker will use Foster Wheeler's proprietary delayed coking technology. Foster Wheeler is based in Clinton, NJ.

The new coker, scheduled for completion during 2008, is part of BP's planned reconfiguration of the Castellon refinery to reduce residual fuel oil production. Details of the reconfiguration were not immediately available for the refinery in Castellon de la Plana, Spain (OGJ Online, July 15, 2002).
