Foster Wheeler

On Monday, November 18th, Foster Wheeler announced it received a contract from Axion Energy Argentina to provide engineering and procurement services for a new DCU at the Campana Refinery in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

On Oct, 22nd, Axion announced the delivery of the first components for new coker unit. The new coker is part of an expansion project that will be completed at the end of 2015. This project will boost diesel production by 60% and gasoline output by 50%.

Charlie Randall, a coker SME and frequent contributor to the blog had these comments –

Have to wonder what is going on with FW folks in PR when the Contract Coker License/Technology on Campana New Coker lags by several months. In Sept, Axion announcement on arrival of New Coker parts! Although rumor has it the coker is the Sinclair Tulsa canceled drums that were sitting at Port Catoosa in Tulsa and would be great buy for Campana and good replacement for old outdated Esso cokers. The project is slated for completion in 2015.
The 90MBD Campana Refinery / 24MBD Coker became a JV between Axion and CNOOC via Bridas Group subsidiary when it was purchased from ExxonMobil in 2012 (~$800MM).
