Oil shales are fine-grained sedimentary rocks formed in many different depositional environments (terrestrial, lacustrine, marine) containing large quantities of thermally immature organic matter in the forms of kerogen and bitumen. If defined from an economic standpoint, a rock containing a sufficient concentration of oil-prone kerogen to generate economic quantities of synthetic crude oil.

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, Clay, Carbonate, .   Book Skill Asphalt Crushed Sand *8, Small Stone *17, Oil Shale *5 Cement Mixer --Gas Can x x Oil Shale *12 Chemistry Station-0 -Yeah, Science: Oil Oil Shale *24, Empty Can *1 Chemistry Station-9

IMMATURE OIL Shale BAsics The immature oil shale case is shown on the rest of this web page. See tight oil plays for the mature kerogen special case., The distinguishing characteristic of an immature "oil shale" is that it contains significant organic carbon but no free oil or gas. friendly” and cost-effective approach to oil shale development. However, significant obstacles to a commercial industry persist: • Predictions about the commercial viability of oil shale depend on developing an industry at a volume that would rank the oil shale region of the Western U.S. among the top 10 oil producing nations in the world.

Book • 2nd Edition • Authors: Oil shale, also called oil parent shale, is an important raw material for producing artificial oil. It can be decomposed into oil-shale oil, dry distillation gas, and shale semicoke.

The development and utilization of oil shale throughout the world has been underway for more than years; however. SinceU.S.

shale oil has created a boom in domestic crude oil production. Shale oil comprises more than a third of the onshore production of crude oil in the lower 48 states.

It drove U.S. oil output from million barrels per day in to a record million barrels a day in   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. This book examines many of the issues surrounding oil shale development in the Uinta Basin.
