China refinery due delayed coker heaters

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Apr. 11 -- CNOOC Oil & Petrochemicals Co. Ltd. (COPC) has let a thermal design, engineering, procurement, and material supply contract to Foster Wheeler USA Corp. for two delayed coker heaters for a four-drum delayed coking unit to be installed at COPC's newly constructed 250,000 b/d refinery in Huizhou, Guangdong Province, China.

The delayed coker heaters will use Foster Wheeler's Terrace-Wall design.

Foster Wheeler previously was awarded the process design package contract for the delayed coking unit, which will be based on the company's Selective Yield Delayed Coking (SYDEC) process. Foster Wheeler said the delayed coker heaters are an integral component of the SYDEC process technology.

The new $2.64 billion refinery will process crude oil from CNOOC's Penglai field in Bohai Bay (OGJ Online, Sept. 8, 2005).
