Construction at BP Cherry Point Refinery may be heard in the area through October, company officials said.

BP is pile driving to build a foundation for replacement coker heaters. Work will occur Monday through Saturday, starting no earlier than 7 a.m. and lasting 10-12 hours a day. It could last into October, BP spokesperson Michael Abendhoff said.

Coker heaters convert residual oil to hydrocarbon gases and other products. Work began this week.
