    G. Upgrading of Shale Oil A 50, B/D plant to upgrade the shale oil from the retort likely will be constructed. Two processing options are currently under consideration: 1. Production of a Synthetic Crude Oil for further refining at a conventional refinery. 2. Oil shale presents environmental challenges as well. It takes two barrels of water to produce one barrel of oil shale liquid [source: Argonne National Laboratory]. And without cutting-edge water treatment technology, the water discharge from oil shale refining will increase salinity in surrounding water, poisoning the local area [source: RAND].

An oil yield of 87% FA was achieved at a retorting rate of to m/day with a shale bed of + cm particle size range and including a nearly two-fold step change in grade. Oil shale project small retort run summary, run S Technical Report Ackerman, F J ; Sandholtz, W A ; Raley, J H ; Run S, the third in a series of steam/air combustion runs, in the kg retort, was identical to Runs S and S in input gas parameters.

The history of the oil shale industry in the United States goes back to the s; it dates back farther as a major enterprise than the petroleum industry. But although the United States contains the world's largest known resource of oil shale, the US has not been a significant producer of shale oil since There were three major past attempts to establish an American oil shale industry.

Oil shale is a type of sedimentary rock that is rich in kerogen. Kerogen is a part of rock that breaks down and Oil shale project small retort run summary hydrocarbons when heated. Hydrocarbons are substances made entirely of hydrogen and carbon.

Petroleum and natural gas are probably the most familiar hydrocarbons. The hydrocarbons in oil shale can be used as an alternative to petroleum or natural gas. Shale oil product acts as a liquid seal in the feed chute to maintain the retort pressure. As the oil shale rises through the retort cone it is contacted by a counter- current flow of hot recycle gas entering the top of the retort dome.

The hot recycle gas provides the. The use of oil shale has been known for thousands of years. Inoil shale has been used as a commercial resource in France.

It was mined and cooked in small quantities to produce oil to light oil lamps (Western Resources Advocates, ). Oil shale production had reached one million metric tons per year during the s and by   The United States of America resources in terms of billion barrels of oil 6 TABLE Oil shale resources of U.S.A.

It is well established that rubble bed non. The history of the oil shale industry started in ancient times. The modern industrial use of oil shale for oil extraction dates to the midth century and started growing just before World War I because of the mass production of automobiles and trucks and the supposed shortage of gasoline for transportation needs.

Between the World Wars oil shale projects were begun in several countries. A unitized management and development of the government-owned oil shale in Colorado will make it technically and economically practical to obtain very large production rates (1–5 × 10 6 bbl/day) of shale oil from this source.

The estimated price is below world prices and could be less than $15/bbl. Private oil shale lands, on the other hand, provide a smaller though still important.

Oil shale project run summary, small retort runs S and S Technical Report Raley, J H ; Campbell, J H The objective of Runs S and S was to assess the technical feasibility of using oxygen diluted, respectively, with steam or carbon dioxide as the injection gas for MIS oil shale retorting.

Oil shale economics deals with the economic feasibility of oil shale extraction and gh usually oil shale economics is understood as shale oil extraction economics, the wider approach evaluates usage of oil shale as whole, including for the oil-shale-fired power generation and production of by-products during retorting or shale oil upgrading processes.
