KANSAS REFINERY STARTS UP COKE GASIFICATION UNIT

Texaco Refining & Marketing Inc. has started up a gasification unit at its El Dorado, Kansas refinery. The unit gasifies delayed coke and other refinery waste products. Start-up of the $80-million gasification-based power plant was completed in mid-June. The gasifier produces syngas which, along with natural gas, fuels a combustion turbine. The turbine produces virtually 100 percent of the refinery's electricity needs and enough heat to generate 40 percent of its steam requirements.
