HOUSTON, Mar. 31
-- Marathon Oil Corp. has integrated and started up the 180,000-b/d expansion of its Garyville, La., refinery, bringing total crude capacity to 436,000 b/d. Both trains are on stream (OGJ Online, Mar. 11, 2010).

Marathon completed construction of the expansion facility late last year. While starting up the new equipment early this year, the company conducted an extensive turnaround of the existing plant, which was shut down.

New processing units include a 44,000-b/d coker, a 65,000-b/d reformer, a 70,000-b/d hydrocracker, a 74,000-b/d kerosine hydrotreater, and sulfur and hydrogen plants.

The project boosted output capacities at Garyville to 290,000 b/d from 190,000 b/d of gasoline and to 175,000 b/d from 95,000 b/d of diesel.
