Pancevo Coker Project Announced

Congratulations to the NIS Pancevo Refinery – Newest Member of the Coker Family!

Pancevo Refinery Gmap

We wanted to be the first to welcome the NIS worldwide refinery outside Belgrade in the town of Pancevo to the coker family.  Yes, maybe a bit premature because they are only in the front end design stage.  Still a big step forward into the world of coking refineries for that plant and increased conversion capacity.

CB&I will be responsible for finding the optimum solution through the integration of their bottom of the barrel upgrading technology into the existing plants FCC and hydrocracker infrastructure.  The use of CB&I as a coker licensor  is a natural fit because the other upgrading units are also part of the CB&I family.

If you know anyone from that plant, tell them welcomes them!

More information, the press release and some information about the company can be found here .  Is clear this project has been on the CEO’s mind for some time after an article here from 2013.
