Phillips 66 Company (Formerly Conocophillips) Propane Recover Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR

Document Description
The proposed project would add and modify processing and ancillary equipment within the refinery. New equipment includes a hydrotreater, fractionation columns to recover propane and butane, and propane storage vessels and treatment facilities, as well as two new rail spurs. To provide the steam required by the proposed project, either a new 140 million Btu/hr steam boiler would be added or more steam would be provided by the existing steam power plant if the new boiler were not built. There would also be minor modifications to existing process units and utility systems for the purpose of tie-ins and to address any changes in operating pressure or temperature at the tie-in points. The proposed project would require hydrotreating a portion of the RFG, a process that would reduce the amount of sulfur in the fuel gas, and because fuel gas is now burned to produce heat for refinery processes, would ultimately reduce the refinery's SO2 emissions to the atmosphere. The project would be built in two phases. The first phase would provide enhanced recovery and increased rail shipments of butane. Phase I would include all project components except propane storage and the additional rail loading rack and spurs. During the second phase, the facilities to store and ship propane would be added along with the piping and other ancillary equipment necessary to get the propane from the Propane/Butane Recovery Unit to the storage vessels and loading racks. Startup would occur after the completion of construction, which is estimated to take 12 to 15 months.
