The Fossil Energy program in oil shale focuses on reviewing the potential of oil shale as a strategic resource for liquid fuels. It is generally agreed that worldwide petroleum supply will eventually reach its productive limit, peak, and begin a long term decline.

Western U.S. Oil Shale • Oil shale is a ne-grained sedimentary rock containing a solid material (kerogen) that converts to liquid oil when heated. Oil shale deposits exist in 37 countries globally, but the largest and highest quality oil shale deposits are in sparsely populated areas of File Size: KB.

The economics of Oil Shale extraction are an impediment to its commercial production. In order for oil shale production to be profitable, the industry must overcome technical, environmental, regulatory, and economic obstacles.

2 Origins of oil and natural gas Source: Oil & Gas UK 1. Shale gas. What is it and where does it come from. Shale gas is natural gas formed and held within shale formations.

It is a fossil fuel originating from plant, algal or other remains, and composed primarily of methane (CH 4). Generally, shale. 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. to petroleum. Results show that shale oil compares well to crude oil and its fractions.

For example, 85% of the shale oil sample fractions fall within the range of the light and heavy gas oil fractions. The 50% boiling range temperature of shale oil is C, whereas for light and heavy gas oils, they are C and C, respectively. ThisFile Size: KB.

Oil shale refers to a type of crude oil that can be refined from sedimentary rock. Sedimentary rock, because it is made by compression, can contain a variety of different things including organic matter. The organic matter in sedimentary rock is referred to as kerogen.

Kerogen itself is usually formed from algae and other marine plant. Geology and Resources of Some World Oil-Shale Deposits. Cover. The high-grade kukersite oil shale of Estonia, which fuels several electric power plants, has a heat-ing value of about 2, to 2, kcal/kg.

By comparison, the Geology and Resources of Some World Oil-Shale Deposits. ‘SYNTHETIC’ FUELS, OIL SHALE AND TAR SANDS hot enough for the kerogen to turn into oil underground. In situ retorting eliminates the mining cost, many of the costs for above-ground retorts and liquid handling equipment, and addresses the problem of disposing of the shale after the oil has been ‘cooked’ out of it.

Shale Petroleum Ltd. (“Shale”) is a private company headquartered in Calgary, AB. Our team is managed by a successful, experienced leadership team with a broad oil & gas exploration and production background.

Shale is focused on stacked resources, and is an early participant in multiple emerging and proven opportunities. Deep Shale Oil and Gas provides an introduction to shale gas resources as well as offer a basic understanding of the geomechanical properties of shale, the need for hydraulic fracturing, and an indication of shale gas processing.

The book also examines the issues regarding the nature of shale gas development, the potential environmental impacts. In the extraction of oil from oil shales, Shale oil, in fossil fuel production, either a synthetic crude oil that is extracted from oil shale by means of pyrolysis or a naturally occurring crude oil that is extracted from underground shale deposits by means of fracking (hydraulic fracturing).

synthetic fuels, which may be liquid or gaseous, derived from solid fuels, such as oil from kerogen in oil shale, or oil and gas from coal tar sands sedimentary rocks or sands impregnated with tar oil, asphalt, or bitumen. Shale Oil and Gas Handbook: Theory, Technologies, and Challenges provides users with information on how shale oil and gas exploration has revolutionized today’s energy industry.

As activity has boomed and job growth continues to increase, training in this area for new and experienced engineers is essential. 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. Shale oil is a high-quality crude oil that lies between layers of shale rock, impermeable mudstone, or siltstone. Oil companies produce shale oil by fracturing the layers of rock that contain the layers of oil.

Don't confuse shale oil with oil shale. That is rock suffused with kerogen, a precursor to oil. Less attention has been paid to other important petroleum products, and their relationship with oil and natural gas markets.

One such market segment is Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG). LPGs such as propane and butane are related to oil and natural gas both on the demand side (through its use for fuel and heating) and the.

US Shale Oil Dynamics in a Low Price Environment iv Executive Summary US unconventional oil has proved to be more resilient than originally anticipated, and shale producers have been able to maintain production at relatively high levels through several months of low oil prices.

Production has only recently begun to decline. Keywords: kukersite oil shale, gasification, solid fuels, thermal decomposi-tion, oil shale gas. Introduction In the Estonian State Development Plan of Oil Shale Utilization for –the need for a thorough reform in this field, which should include technical, administrative, economic and environmental measures, has been expressed.

For crude oil occurring in shale reservoirs and also referred to as 'shale oil', see Tight oil. Shale oil is an unconventional oil produced from oil shale rock fragments by pyrolysis, hydrogenation, or thermal dissolution. These processes convert the organic matter within the rock (kerogen) into synthetic oil.

Oil shale, any sedimentary rock containing various amounts of solid organic material that yields petroleum products, along with a variety of solid by-products, when subjected to pyrolysis—a treatment that consists of heating the rock to above °C (about °F) in the absence of oxygen.

The liquid oil extracted from oil shale, once it is upgraded, creates a type of synthetic crude oil. Energy Information Administration's "Energy Explained" series: "Shale is a fine-grained sedimentary rock that forms from the compaction of silt and clay-size mineral particles and is easily broken into thin, parallel layers.

Black shale contains organic material that can generate oil and natural gas and trap the generated oil and natural gas within its pores. Shale Resource Systems for Oil and Gas: Part 2—Shale-oil petroleum system, but not a shale-oil resource system. tional petroleum or other unconventional resource systems.

Even in a hybrid shale-oil resource system, the source rock itself may be contributing to actual. Oil shale is an organic-rich fine-grained sedimentary rock containing kerogen from which liquid hydrocarbons can be produced, called shale oil. Shale oil is a substitute for conventional crude oil; however, extracting shale oil from oil shale is more costly than the production of conventional crude oil both financially and in terms of its environmental impact.

Deposits of oil shale occur around the world, Primary: Kerogen, Quartz, Feldspar, Clay, Carbonate. Estimated shale oil and shale gas resources in the United States and in shale formations in 41 other countries represent 10% of the world's crude oil and 32% of the world's natural gas technically recoverable resources, or those that can be produced using current technology without reference to economic profitability, according to a new EIA-sponsored study (see Table 1) released.

They have found that most oil and gas is derived from shale-rich source rocks—rocks abundant in organic debris trapped during deposition. The chemical signatures of both oil and gas often match—much like fingerprints. Shale is the most common sedimentary rock and can serve both as a “seal” and a source rock for oil.

Let me try and explain in easy manner. Hope it helps you understand the difference: So shale oil and shale gas are essentially oil and gas trapped in shale formations. Now shale essentially has very low permeability which does not allow oil or gas.

Authors' note: This report was issued by the Office of Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserves, which has been touting oil shale for nearly a century. Since no nation has ever produced more t barrels per day, it is absurd to contend, as this report does, that. the crude shale oil must be treated with hydrogen to create a stable synthetic crude oil.

Then the synthetic crude can be refined into gasoline and other petroleum products similar to those obtained from conventional crude. Oil shale also presents a massive materials handling challenge if it is to be processed in aboveground Size: KB.

In his pathbreaking Resource Wars, world security expert Michael Klare alerted us to the role of resources in conflicts in the post-cold-warin Blood and Oil, he concentrates on a single precious commodity, petroleum, while issuing a warning to the United States--its most powerful, and most dependent, global consumer.

Oil shale gas is produced by retorting (pyrolysis) of oil shale. In the pyrolysis process, oil shale is heated until its kerogen decomposes into vapors of a petroleum-like condensable shale oil, non-condensible combustible oil shale gas, and spent shale—a solid residue.

The process is the same as the shale oil extraction and oil shale gas usually occurs as a byproduct of shale oil.A Review of Macromolecular Organic Compounds That Comprise Living Organisms and Their Role in Kerogen, Coal, and Petroleum Formation B.
