HOUSTON, Oct. 25 -- Consumers' Cooperative Refineries Ltd. (CCRL) has retained International Alliance Group (IAG) as program manager for the grassroots portion of a proposed expansion of its 100,000 b/cd refinery in Regina, Sask.

The project would increase output of Saskatchewan's only oil refinery by 30%. It involves building a fluid catalytic cracking complex to support the additional crude oil processing.

IAG is expected to make a final decision in early 2008 to move forward with detailed design and construction of the project, which, if implemented, would increase capacity of the refinery to 130,000 b/cd.

Meanwhile, Mustang Engineering, a subsidiary of John Wood Group PLC, is providing front-end engineering design services to IAG for the CCRL refinery expansion.
