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.

Oil shale (Estonian: põlevkivi) is a strategic energy resource that constitutes about 4% of Estonia's gross domestic oil shale industry in Estonia is one of the most developed in the world. In , the country's oil shale industry employed 6, people – about 1% of the national workforce. Of all the oil shale fired power stations in the world, the two largest are in this country. Canada, Russia, USA, and Venezuela are producing heavy oil from oilsand. USA is leading the development of techniques for exploring, and technology for exploiting unconventional gas resources, which can help to develop potential gas-bearing shales of Thailand. The main focus is on source-reservoir-seal shale petroleum plays.

THE FIRST CIRCULAR SYMPOSIUM ON OIL SHALE 18–21 November Background Estonia's oil shale industry is nearly a century old. Oil shale has been the Country's main source for power generation and oil production. Serious en-vironmental problems in Northern Estonia are also related to its oil shale .   At an oil shale symposium at the School of Mines last October, ExxonMobil outlined what it called an “electrofrac process” for extracting shale from oil on-site, or in situ.

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.

Papers presented at the United Nations Symposium on the development and utilization of oil shale resources at Tallinn, Estonia, reported the quantity of oil in the shale as (1) U.S.

gallons per ton, (2) imperial 3 gallons per tonne, (3) litres per ton, (4) litres per m, (5) weight-percent oil, and (6) volume-percent oil. The IHMB oil shale refinery process is shown in Figure 2.

The process includes an oil shale pyrolysis unit, a coal gasification unit, an oil-gas separation unit, and a semi-coke for power generation unit. The oil shale is first milled and screened, and the shale particles below. Shale Oil and Gas Production Processes delivers the basics on current production technologies and the processing and refining of shale ng with the potential of formations and then proceeding to production and completion, this foundational resource also dives into the chemical and physical nature of the precursor of oil shale, kerogen, to help users understand and optimize its.

Sohrab Zendehboudi PhD, Alireza Bahadori PhD, CEng, in Shale Oil and Gas Handbook, 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.

There are vast quantities of oil shale around the world in deposits located in 27 countries. The quality, quantity, and origins of these shale deposits vary greatly. The United States has the largest known resource of oil shale in the world - an estimated 6 trillion barrels (1).

Other significant deposits of oil shale can be found in Russia, Brazil, Estonia, and China. The world’s oil shale. 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. Oil shale was one of the first sources of mineral oil used by humans. In the 10th century, the Arabic physician Masawaih al-Mardini (Mesue the Younger) first described a method of extracting oil from "some kind of bituminous shale".

It was also reported to have been used in Switzerland and Austria in the early 14th century. Inthe personal physician of Frederick I, Duke of Württemberg.

Although shale-oil plays with oil stored in open-fractured shale have been pursued for more than 99yr, organic-rich and low-permeability shales and hybrid shale-oil systems are now being pursued based on knowledge and technologies gained from production of shale-gas resource systems and likely hold the largest untapped oil resource potential.

Chemistry and Kinetics of Oil Shale Retorting Alan K. Burnham Chapter 6, DOI: /bkch Publication Date (Web): Febru The shale oil-equivalent reserves in the world is × 10 8 tons, three times the world’s crude oil reserves, as shown in Figure 1 (Zuckerman, ).Inthe shale oil production reached × 10 8 tons, one-third of conventional petroleum production in the U.S.

This has completely changed the pattem of international oil and gas supply, known as the shale revolution (Zuckerman, ). 16th Oil Shale Symposium proceedings Responsibility: James H. Gary, editor ; symposium sponsored by Colorado School of Mines and Laramie Energy Technology Center.

In the s, a sudden technological advance in fracturing shale formations led to the U.S. vastly increasing its oil and especially natural production that continues to this day. Although credit should be shared with others, America’s first “shale boom” began with the innovative thinking of one independent producer from Galveston, Texas.

While oil and gas companies have seriously chopped its workforce, shale--like it did last time around--will find a way to do more with less. Necessity being the mother of invention, U.S. shale. The Shale Gas Handbook is a one of a kind, one-resource book that members of the oil and gas industry can turn to for questions about unconventional shale oil and gas drilling, production and hydraulic fracking.

Since the launch of the first edition, there have been a number of exciting changes both in the United States and around the world. The history of the oil shale industry started in ancient times.

The modern industrial use of oil shale for oil extraction dates to the midth century and started growing just before World War I because of the mass production of automobiles and trucks and the supposed shortage of gasoline for transportation needs.

Between the World Wars oil shale projects were begun in several countries.
