Luigi Patron served as Chairman and CEO of the engineering company Snamprogetti between 1997 and 2005. Snamprogetti, formerly a subsidiary of ENI and later merged with Saipem, designed and built the demonstration unit used to validate the first commercially applied heavy oil slurry hydroconversion technology. Mr. Patron has since continued working on hydroconversion technologies independently.
