    This book examines many of the issues surrounding oil shale development in the Uinta Basin. Focusing on research conducted by investigators associated with The University of Utah’s Institute for Clean and Secure Energy (ICSE), the chapters in this book build on each other across a range of scales and of disciplines to present a comprehensive. about the nature of oil shale is followed by an evaluation of technologies for recov-ery of shale oil. The economics and finances of establishing an industry of various sizes are analyzed. The fact that much of the best shale is located on Federal land is examined in light of the desire to increase use of the resources. The conse-.

      With the sharp fall in oil prices, many small-scale shale oil drillers in the United States will go bankrupt as happened in late when the Saudis flooded the market with cheap oil. Starting in , aided by high oil prices and technical advances, shale oil drillers boosted US crude oil production, accounting for a third of the onshore output.   Texas, along with New Mexico, hasn't limited oil production since the s and is the home of the Permian Basin, America's most productive oil Author: Zerohedge.

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].

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 by: 7.

Shale Oil and Gas Handbook: and processing and extraction technologies, the book is a great starting point to educate oil and gas personnel on today’s shale industry. Critical topics covered include characterization of shale gas, theory and methods, typical costs, and obstacles for exploration and drilling, R&D and technology development.

This book focuses on the fundamental and engineering aspects of shale oil extraction, as well as the mathematical clarification of the complex transport mechanisms involved in oil shale pyrolysis. The influence of the chemical and physical environment on the enhancement of oil yield is explained, and ex situ and in situ technologies are.

The influence of the chemical and physical environment on the enhancement of oil yield is explained, and ex situ and in situ technologies are reviewed and compared.4/5(1). 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.

The US becomes the largest gas producer in the world and the File Size: 2MB. 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 rock formations that contain the layers of oil. SinceU.S. shale oil has created a boom in domestic crude oil production. 1  Shale oil comprises more than a third of the. Shale oil is an unconventional oil produced from oil shale rock fragments by pyrolysis, hydrogenation, or thermal processes convert the organic matter within the rock into synthetic oil and resulting oil can be used immediately as a fuel or upgraded to meet refinery feedstock specifications by adding hydrogen and removing impurities such as sulfur.

Lucia M. Petkovic, in The Science and Technology of Unconventional Oils, Abstract. Shale oil is the product of the thermal reaction and decomposition of kerogen present in oil shales. Any technology to produce shale oil includes mining, heat treatment—also known as retorting—to extract the oil, and oil upgrading.

Shale oil – February 1 Executive summary • Shale oil (light tight oil) is rapidly emerging as a significant and relatively low cost new unconventional resource in the US. There is potential for shale oil production to spread globally over the next couple of decades.

If it does, it would revolutionise global energy. This book on science and technology of oil shale discusses petroleum and natural gas engineering, geology, oil shale formation, chemistry and petrochemistry, physicochemical and thermomechanical properties, analysis and characterization, oil and gas extraction/recovery technology, EOR, hydraulic fracture, horizontal drilling, frac fluid formulations, contaminated Author: Sunggyu Lee.

The active oil rig count dropped from nearly in December to less than by early May, prompting one famous shale pessimist to say “The Party’s Over for U.S. Tight Oil.”. Oil shale, also known as kerogen shale, is an organic-rich fine-grained sedimentary rock containing kerogen (a solid mixture of organic chemical compounds) from which liquid hydrocarbons called.

SubSidizing oil Shale 5 taxpayerS for common SenSe cover the gap, providing a $25 subsidy per barrel. Some estimates have cited $$70 per barrel as a point where oil shale becomes cost-competitive; but even with a range this large, it is difficult to make any assumption without having ever commercially produced oil Size: 2MB.

Shale Oil: A type of unconventional oil found in shale formations. Shale oil can refer to two types of oil. It may refer to crude oil that is found within shale formations, or. Focuses on the fundamental and engineering aspects of shale oil extraction, as well as the mathematical clarification of the complex transport mechanisms involved in oil shale pyrolysis.

This book explains the influence of the chemical and physical environment on. Under present technology the oil is recovered by either of two processes. One involves mining and crushing oil shale and then transporting the rock to a processing plant where it is heated in special retorts to temperatures of about °C ( °F).

The intense heat releases oil vapours from the rock, which liquefy in a series of condensers. As the Financial Times noted in a story about shale producers becoming financially sustainable, “many shale companies have been saying they will focus on improving returns rather than growth at all costs.” 49 Ed Crooks and Nicole Bullock, “US Shale Groups Reach Self-financing Milestone as Oil Prices Rise,” Financial Times, April is extensive, addressing nearly every aspect of shale gas and oil development with over papers in shale fracturing and 3, on all aspects of horizontal wells.
