Oil Shale Reserves. Oil Shale Reserves: Stinky Water, Sweet Oil A Daily Reckoning White Paper Report By Dan Denning. You won’t think much of Rio Blanco County if you ever drive through : Dan Denning. Book: Methane contents of oil shale from the Piceance Basin, CO.

  The most valuable U.S. oil shale resources, however, are located deep under northwestern Colorado's Piceance Basin, a 1,square-mile region of .   Shale oil refers to hydrocarbons that are trapped in formations of shale rock. Fracking is a process that oil companies use to drill down into the layers of shale and open up the rock formations.

The current rate of water consumption is estimated, based on retorting methods from the oil shale industry, to be about a water-to-oil ratio. For oil shale resources with potential to yield almost million(M) m 3 (~ million barrels (Mbbl) or ~ ac-ft (acre-feet)) of oil per day, this equates to Mm 3 (~ Mbbl or ~ ac-ft) of Cited by: 4.

The Eocene Green River Formation of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming contains the largest oil shale deposits in the world. Oil shale, despite the name, does not actually contain oil, but rather a type of organic matter called kerogen, a precursor of oil that is converted to a type of crude oil when heated to about – ° C.

Inthe first Arab oil crisis sparked a boom here, as oil companies decided shale might finally pay. Workers streamed in. Shale would be mined and heated in. Oil shale - Oil shale - Western U.S. oil shale: Oil shales of the Green River Formation (GRF) of Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado in the western United States have been considered economically valuable since the early 20th century.

During the mids, oil shale was burned and oil distilled from shale in Utah. In Colorado, shale oil was used as smudge in orchards about the end of the 19th century. In the process, raw oil shale is retorted in an in situ underground retort or in an above ground retort to liberate shale oil, light hydrocarbon gases and oil shale retort water.

The retort water is separated from the shale oil and gases in a sump or in a fractionator or quench tower Cited by:   2 Description of Oil Shale Processing. Shale oil processing is defined as an industrial process to which raw shale oil is subjected to extract oil from it—basically a process to produce unconventional oil [1].

Because shale oil exists as solid sedimentary rocks, its extraction is more complex than extraction of conventional oil [1]. Oil shale is a type of sedimentary rock that is rich in kerogen.

Kerogen is a part of rock that breaks down and releases 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.

7 Our RD&D phase (~10 years) will involve about 20 people Our commercial process will use a small, stable labor force Approximately people for drilling and production operations Production target of aboutbbl/day* At bbl/day per worker, each worker will produce enough oil for 5, people At a royalty rate of $10/barrel**, each worker would generate.

What is claimed is: 1. An in situ oil shale process, comprising the steps of: retorting raw oil shale in situ to liberate light hydrocarbon gases, shale oil and shale-laden retort water containing suspended and dissolved impurities including raw and spent oil shale particulates, shale oil, organic carbon, carbonates, ammonia and chemical oxygen demand.

First oil shale retort (kiln) in Colorado is built on Dry Fork northwest of De Beque. – First “Oil Shale Boom” w to 35, oil shale land and mining claims filed, most in Colorado’s Piceance Creek Basin. Dozens of oil shale companies are formed in Colorado. U.S. government passes Mineral Leasing Act.

Shale oil extraction is an industrial process for unconventional oil production. This process converts kerogen in oil shale into shale oil by pyrolysis, hydrogenation, or thermal resultant shale oil is used as fuel oil or upgraded to meet refinery feedstock specifications by adding hydrogen and removing sulfur and nitrogen impurities.

Shale oil extraction is usually performed Feedstock: Oil shale. What is claimed is: 1. An oil shale process, comprising the steps of: retorting raw oil shale in a surface retort to liberate an effluent product stream of hydrocarbons and oil shale retort water vapors containing oil shale particulates ranging in size from less than one micron to microns, organic carbon, ammonia, and chemical oxygen demand.

PARACHUTE – Dick Brammer has seen oil shale come and seen it go. The area manager for Unocal’s oil shale operation on the East Fork of Parachute Creek, Brammer was around during what he calls “the mad rush” of the s, overseeing Unocal’s mammoth square-mile oil-shale-production property north of Parachute.

(USA). Oil-Shale Experiment Station. Underground oil shale retorting is being tested in Piceance Creek Basin in west Colorado.

Retort one is ft high and 60 ft square, and its floor lies ft below the ground surface. Rubbled shale containing kerogen will start burning in the chamber in Aprilfrom top ignition.

Heat generated by the burn is expected to produce. These holes were drilled for the purpose of oil-shale resource evaluation in the presumed depositional center of the rich oil-shale sequence in the basin. The drilling operations were contracted by the US Geological Survey to Connors Drilling, Inc.

of Lakewood, Colorado, and the field descriptions of the cuttings and core were done by Ameralda Resources, Inc. of Denver, Colorado, with revisions by the. By the eve of the US Civil War, more than 50 companies in Canada and the United States were retorting shale to distill oil from rocks (albeit none very successfully), most of which was used to produce kerosene.

Mormon settlers founded the first known oil shale operation in the Rocky Mountain West, perhaps as early as Oil shale is a rock that contains significant amounts of organic material in the form of kerogen.

Up to 1/3 of the rock can be solid organic material. Liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons can be extracted from the oil shale, but the rock must be heated and/or treated with solvents.In Mobil Oil built a pilot shale oil extraction plant and in Union built an experimental oil shale retort.

In Texaco started shale oil refining study. Inthe United States Department of Defense became interested in oil shale as an alternative resource for producing a jet fuel.
