re: Shell considering $1.2 billion expansion in Geismar - absolute692
[quote]Dmaxxx37[/quote] Obviously maintenance is planned every so often based on the unit. But the fact remains FCCU wasn’t planned to be running long term, so major projects for that unit were not implemented in the last turnaround. That was my only point. I expect that to change for the next...

re: Shell considering $1.2 billion expansion in Geismar - absolute692
[quote]They just did a major turnaround in FCCU [/quote] Yea, I think that was just fixing the patching since that turnaround wasn't expected to happen several years ago when you would engineer/design the improvements. I know part of that turnaround was maintenance work discovered in the actual ...

re: Shell considering $1.2 billion expansion in Geismar - absolute692
[quote]That has nothing to do with a decision on adding a new unit out there. Shell wants to invest and there is a lot of land there.[/quote] FWIW, money will go to fixing/improving H-Oil and FCCU before any new unit is built. FCCU was patched a few years ago because they were going to shut it ...

re: MSRP for fully loaded 2019 Sierra Denali will be $70k - absolute692
[quote]MSRP is laughable on GM vehicles these days. 70k means you really pay like 55k which is the same price as a maxed out tundra. [/quote] You aren't getting $15k off MSRP for a Denali....

re: MSRP for fully loaded 2019 Sierra Denali will be $70k - absolute692
[quote]I'm not going to say you're a liar, but that's not how it works almost anywhere in the south. [/quote] This. I could have searched and found a 1 year old F150 with 20k miles for $30k. I found a brand new one for $44.5k, got it down to $34.5K after rebates and incentives, and I got 20k ...

Who is in charge of traffic light synchronization in BR? - absolute692
Whoever was in charge of this for the Essen Lane project needs to be brought out back and shot. Seriously never seen something so bad. I drive this road every morning, and it never fails that I hit over 50% red lights. Today it was 4 straight red lights (every one from Hennesy/Summa to I-10). ...

re: Causeway dethroned by ten miles; 34 mile bridge opens - absolute692
This is old news. Guinness already came out and rewarded Causeway with longest continuous stretch over water record, and this one is in a different category due to the tunnel. [link=(https://www.livescience.com/34448-worlds-longest-bridge.html)]LINK[/link] BTW, why is my GE Gold series fridge ...
