A catalyst for producing higher carbon number hydrocarbons, e.g., benzene from low carbon number hydrocarbons such as methane has been developed. The catalyst comprises a porous support such as ZSM-5 which has dispersed thereon rhenium and a promoter metal such as iron, cobalt, vanadium, manganese, molybdenum, tungsten and mixtures thereof. A process for preparing the catalyst and a process for converting low carbon number aliphatic hydrocarbons to higher number hydrocarbons in the presence of CO or CO
