Refining heavy crude oils involves applying new and innovative processing methods and catalyst systems. Demand for heavy products such as fuel oil is diminishing; thus, refiners are challenged to retool their operations to upgrade residue streams into high-value products such as diesel and middle distillates. New processing options are now available which involve application of advanced hydroprocessing catalysts and processes as well as innovative hydrotreating catalysts for distillates, residuum and other heavy, difficult feeds. The following presents several examples of applying new catalysts and technologies for upgrading very refractory, heavy feeds into high-value products. Hydrotre
