Wood has been awarded an EPC support services contract for the installation of a 55 000 bpd, four drum delayed coking unit at a Port Arthur refinery in Southeast Texas, US.

Utilising Wood’s Selective Yield Delayed Coking (SYDEC) technology, the upgrade will increase the refinery’s flexibility to run a variety of crude, improve turnaround efficiency, as well as increase its overall throughput capacity, with the start-up of the delayed coking unit expected in 2022.

Andrew Stewart, CEO of Wood’s Asset Solutions Americas business, said: “Our track record of delivering design excellence, together with our market leading delayed coking technology, allows us to assist our client in realising and maximising the full operational benefits of their facility.

“For more than two decades we have been supporting this customer, harnessing our strong capability with a knowledgeable core team of 100 employees who are already familiar with the refinery.”
