Synthetic crude end-point

Synthetic crude end-point

Anyone has any information on the end-point for synthetic crude from the Canadian oilsands plants?

Both plants apparently have some sort of carbon rejection facilites (such as fluidized cokers at Syncrude) so I'm expecting not much heavier than light or heavy vacuum gas oil(s).  More looking for a reality check than detailed numbers as I've been unable to find anything on the net or in my refining books (lots on typical crude oil breakdowns into the various fractions but nothing on synthetic crude that I could find).

RE: Synthetic crude end-point

Synthetic crude end points are around 950 deg F.
