Motiva plans to build an additional delayed coking unit (DCU) similar to this one at the Motiva Enterprises plant in Port Arthur on Friday, Sept. 21, 2007. The planned expansion will make the Port Arthur plant the largest oil and gasoline production in the nation with a throughput of 600,000 barrels per day.
Todd Monette, general manager of the Port Arthur plant, discusses the new $6 billion to $8 billion expansion at the Motiva Youth Training Academy in Port Arthur. More than 4,000 constructions jobs will be created by the expansion and more than 250 permanent jobs.
