By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Apr. 3 -- Placid Refining Co. LLC completed its 20,000 b/d fluidized catalytic cracker gasoline hydrotreater at its refinery in Port Allen, La.

The new unit, along with other improvements, will enable the refinery to meet all applicable clean fuel standards for its products.

The $63 million project, the largest single capital project in Placid's history, is part of the refinery's $300 million upgrade and expansion to increase capacity to 80,000 b/d from 55,000 b/d while reducing total air emissions by 50%.

Mustang, a subsidiary of international energy services company John Wood Group PLC, provided the engineering, design, procurement, and construction management for the project.
