Conoco to increase sulphur recovery capacity of refinery by 50 %

Jul 11, 2000 02:00 AM

Conoco said it will increase the sulphur recovery capacity of the company's refinery by 50 % to improve economics and reduce emissions.
The $ 22 mm sulphur recovery project is a joint effort by Conoco and the adjacent Jupiter Tessender/Kerley Ponca City sulphur plant, of which Conoco is a 50 % joint-venture partner. Conoco said the project would increase the refinery's capacity to process lower-cost sour crude oils while reducing sulphur dioxide (SO2) emissions.
"Increasing the refinery's sulphur recovery capacity will allow us to take full advantage of recent pipeline projects that give us better access to Canadian sour crude oil," said Mike Fretwell, general manager for Conoco's mid-continent business unit. "Our refinery becomes more competitive, and we continue our commitment of environmental stewardship," he emphasised.

Conoco is a major, integrated energy company active in more than 40 countries.
