Oil shale is an organic-rich fine-grained sedimentary rock containing kerogen (a solid mixture of organic chemical compounds) from which liquid hydrocarbons can be produced, called shale oil (not to be confused with tight oil—crude oil occurring naturally in shales). Shale oil is a substitute for conventional crude oil; however, extracting shale oil from oil shale is more costly than the Primary: Kerogen, Quartz, Feldspar.

This is the reason why many of the major oil companies now invest in what is often called unconventional hydrocarbons. There are large reserves of these and the main types are oil shales, heavy oil, tar sand, shale oil and shale gas.

Production of hydrocarbons from these sources occurs mainly in onshore basins and may be challenging Cited by: 2. Hydrocarbons from Oil Shale, Oil Sands and Coal - AICHE Symp.

Ser Vol. 61 [John B. (ed) Jones] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying : John B. (ed) Jones. Oil sands, tar sands, crude bitumen, or more technically bituminous sands, are a type of unconventional petroleum sands are either loose sands or partially consolidated sandstone containing a naturally occurring mixture of sand, clay, and water, soaked with a dense and extremely viscous form of petroleum technically referred to as bitumen.

Caineng Zou, in Unconventional Petroleum Geology (Second Edition), Oil Shale. Oil shale, also called raw oil shale, refers to the high-ash solid combustible organic rock with oil content greater than %.It has sapropelic, humus, or mixed origin with a calorific value generally ≥ MJ/kg.

It is different from coal in that its ash content is greater than 40% and different. The shale revolution turns the US into one of the top global oil & gas producers.

The term “petroleum” has come to be progressively expanded to “petroleum hydrocarbons” that include natural products as diverse as natural gas, light crudes, heavy oils, all bituminous substances, and oil-shale kerogens but which, by definition, exclude.

Coal, Oil Shale, Natural Bitumen, Heavy Oil and Peat is a component of Encyclopedia of Energy Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

Introduction 2. Origins of Coal and World Reserves The Origin of Organic Matter and the Evolution of Life Systems on Earth File Size: KB. Shortly after World War I, coal provided over 75 percent of the total energy used in the USA.

But oil and natural gas were favored by price and technological developments so that, incoal supplied only 18 percent of trillion Btu of energy used in the USA. High oil and gas prices have attracted many to invest in Canada's oil sands, to extract gas from low-permeability reservoirs (tight gas) and to target methane from coal beds.

Oil-shale deposits are also attracting renewed interest, despite the significant energy input required to produce oil from these reserves. @article{osti_, title = {Shale oil developments: kinetics of oil shale pyrolysis}, author = {Allred, V.D.}, abstractNote = {Steady-state decomposition data show the rate determining reactions to be logistic or autocatalytic functions.

A mechanism is developed explaining how insoluble organic matter in oil shale decomposes to form fluid hydrocarbons. 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.

Unlike the hydrocarbons in the tight oil formations, the oil shale (kerogen) consists of very heavy hydrocarbons that are solid.

In that way, oil shale more resembles coal than : The Oil Drum. Production from unconventional petroleum reservoirs includes petroleum from shale, coal, tight-sand and oil-sand.

These reservoirs contain enormous quantities of oil and natural gas but pose a technology challenge to both geoscientists and engineers to produce economically on a commercial scale.

Oil shale differs from coal in that organic matter in shales has a higher atomic hydrogen to carbon ratio. Coal also has an organic to inorganic matter ratio of more than 4, i.e., 75 to 5, while oil shales have a higher content of sedimentary rock.

Almost _____ of all electric power produced relies on coal as a source of energy. Why must oil shale be heated to extract hydrocarbons? Oil shale has low permeability. Methane clathrates are stable in _____ conditions. low temperature, high pressure. Which of the following is a drawback to mining oil shale and oil sands?

It is costly and.- smaller amounts of heavier gaseous hydrocarbons - provides 28% of the energy consumed in the United States - 30% less CO2 than oil - found in deposits lying above deposits of conventional oil - in deposits in shale rock, can be extracted through horizontal drilling and fracking - distributed by large network of underground pipelines.Crain’s Rule #0: Gamma ray or SP deflections to the left indicate cleaner sands, deflections to the right are shaly.

Draw clean and shale lines, then interpolate linearly between clean and shale lines to visually estimate Shale Volume (Vsh). To find clean zones versus shale zones, examine the spontaneous potential (SP.
