These proceedings reflect the important role of catalysis in petroleum refining and the effects of factors such as environmental legislation on the industry. They also show the emergence of significant scientific expertise in the Middle East - the cradle of the oil industry. Participants from all over the world took part in the meeting and the book contains a well-balanced selection of articles from both academia and industry. Current trends in the oil industry focused attention mainly on heavy end hydrotreating, but other processes also gained their share of attention. An invaluable feature of the meeting was the two panel discussions where participants took the opportunity to obtain advance on many real and immediate problems.In the hydroprocessing of heavy resids for high conversion, refiners are often faced with serious operational problems due to sediment formation and coke deposition. ... The major objective of the work was to assess the nature of reactions of asphaltenes and to understand the relationship between the ... The surface area and pore volume of the catalyst were, respectively, 312 m2/ g and 0.7 ml/g.
