NARL Refining LP has filed for registration and review of the environmental assessment process for construction of a delayed coker at its 130,000-b/d refinery at Come-by-Chance, Newf.

The July 5 filing comes as the latest step in a series of advancements NARL has made in pursuing construction and operation of a coker to ensure the refinery remains competitive and is able to assist in filling the upcoming need for reduced-sulfur heavy fuel oil, NARL said.

The proposed coker will also allow NARL to increase its processing capacity as well as meet the upcoming global cap of 0.5% sulfur on fuel oil by all ocean-going vessels that the International Maritime Organization is imposing effective Jan. 1, 2020, according to the operator.

“This filing is the next step of the process for us. Having successfully completed the feasibility study and the basis of design phase, we’re getting closer to making a final decision about the project,” said Thomas Jenke, NARL’s chief executive officer.

Further details regarding the proposed project, including a precise timeframe for when a final investment decision might be reached, have yet to be disclosed.
