HOUSTON (ICIS)--Pemex will use Bechtel's technology for the delayed coking unit it is building at its new Tula refinery in Hidalgo, Mexico, the US-based engineering firm said on Monday.
Tula's delayed coker will have two trains, giving the unit a total capacity of 166,000 bbl/day, Bechtel said. This would make Tula's delayed coker one of the largest in the world.
The new refinery should start operations in the first half of 2016.
It will produce roughly 142,000 bbl/day of gasoline, 82,000 bbl/day diesel and 12,000 bbl/day of jet fuel.
