Contract let in Spanish refinery expansion

By OGJ editors
-- Repsol YPF SA has let contract to Foster Wheeler AG to design, supply, and erect a heat recovery steam generator to be integrated in a cogeneration plant under construction in the expansion of its Cartagena refinery in Murcia, Spain (OGJ, Apr. 7, 2008, p. 24).

The 40-Mw cogeneration plant is part of a project that will double distillation capacity to 220,000 b/d.

Other capacity additions include 50,000 b/d of hydrocracking, 60,000 b/d of coking, and 60,000 b/d of desulfurization.

More than 50% of the expanded complex’s output will be middle distillates, mainly diesels.
