Cogeneration a vital part of $1bn Exxon Mobil project

A 130 MW cogeneration unit is set to play a part in a substantial investment being made by Exxon Mobil in, Antwerp, Belgium.

Exxon Mobil Corp. has announced that it will invest more than $1bn at a Belgian refinery where it will install a new delayed coker unit to produce marine gasoil and diesel fuel.

In a statement, Irving-based Exxon (NYSE: XOM) said that it will expand the Antwerp facility's ability to meet energy needs throughout northwest Europe.

“Our investments at this refinery, totalling more than $2bn in less than a decade, will contribute to meeting the demand for fuels and finished products from our customers in Europe,” Jerry Wascom, the incoming president of ExxonMobil Refining & Supply Co., said in the statement. “This new unit, along with the recently completed 130 MW cogeneration unit and diesel hydrotreater at the Antwerp complex, reaffirms ExxonMobil as a leader in the European and global energy markets.”
