Repsol starts up Petronor delayed coker

Repsol has started up a 40,000-b/d delayed coker at the Petronor refinery at Muskiz near Bilbao, Spain, in a project that expands crude capacity to 240,000 b/d from 220,000 b/d.

The company also started up a cogeneration unit that boosts electric-generation capacity to 100 Mw, making the refinery self-sufficient in power and able to distribute 15% of the output to the local grid.

Early last year Repsol idled a crude unit and related reformer at the Petronor facility due to low margins but restarted them in April (OGJ Online, Apr. 25, 2012).
