The DCU will have a design capacity of 37,500 barrels per stream day and is a key part of this significant refinery upgrade. The Foster Wheeler contract value was not disclosed and was included in the company’s third-quarter 2011 bookings. The award for the delayed-coker heaters was included in the company’s second-quarter 2011 bookings.
