The report gives results of Phase III work to optimize operating conditions in the demetallization step for overall desulfurization of heavy petroleum residual oils. Bachaquero and Lloydminster vacuum residue were demetallized to different levels of vanadium removal, the products desulfurized over commercial hydrodesulfurization catalyst at various operating conditions, and minimum operating costs were calculated to produce low sulfur fuel oil. The report describes test units, operating conditions, and procedures, and includes run summaries and tables of feedstock, product, and catalyst inspections. Graphs and tables depicting operating costs for producing 0.3, 0.5, and 1.0 wt % sulfur fuel oil are given, along with various correlations between demetallization levels, catalyst deactivation, demetallization rate constant, and contaminant metals deposited on catalyst.
