1 Oil-impregnated sandstones of Raven Ridge, Vernal, Utah1972Oil-impregnated sandstone; Raven Ridge; Vernal, Utah; Uinta Basin; Utah; Colorado; Wasatch Formation; Green River Formation; Uinta FormationThe area of this report is in the northeastern part of the Uinta Basin of northeastern Utah and northwestern Colorado. The area covers approximately 52 square miles of what is regionally called Raven Ridge. Raven Ridge, a series of hogback ridges, trends northwest-southeast, and includes three Eocen...
2 Green River Formation at Raven Ridge, Uintah County, Utah1965-07Green River formation; Raven Ridge; sandstone beds; shale; limestone; marlstone; oil-bearing strataAlong Raven Ridge in Uintah County, Utah, exposures of the Green River Formation contain a complex sequence of intertonguing beds of sandstone, shale, limestone, and marlstone. These strata are considered to represent deposition in an orderly sequence of environments from the flood plain through the...
3 A sulfur isotopic study of Uinta Basin hydrocarbons1973Sulfur isotope analyses of tar from oilimpregnated sandstones, crude oils and solid hydrocarbons from the Uinta Basin (Tertiary), Utah, show wide variations, but all are heavier than the troilite sulfur isotopic standard. The data range from +2.7 to 30.3 permil and sulfur contents are low, usually l...
4 Petroleum geology of the greater Red Wash Area, Uintah County, Utah1965-07oil and gas field; sandstone; petroleum geologyThe Greater Red Wash area is the largest oil and gas field in the Uinta Basin. The Douglas Creek and Garden Gulch Members of the Green River Formation form a lacustrine delta in the area and yield hydrocarbons from a complex network of discrete sandstones. Each individual sandstone body forms its ow...

6 Identification by 13C NMR of carbon types in shale oil and their relationship to pyrolysis conditions1983-04shale oil; multiple-pulse techniques; shale oil characterization; identification of carbon types; pyrolysis conditionsA number of samples of shale oil prepared under various conditions have been examined by 13C NMR using multiple-pulse techniques that allow carbon-type assignments. Previous assignments by Netzel et al (1981) are confirmed and several new ones made. Product chemistry is then examined as a function o...
7 Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory oil shale (Oct 1988)1988-10Pyrolzer reactions; oil shale; pyrite decomposition; Green River Formation oil shale; water vapor concentrations in oil shaleI. Secondary Reactions in the Pyrolzer, H2S Release from Devonian Oil Shale. II. Pyrite Decomposition in Oil Shale. III. More on Organic/Inorganic Nitrogen in Green River Formation Oil Shale. IV. Fast and Accurate Measurements of Water Vapor Concentrations. V. References.
8 On-line, mass spectrometric determination of ammonia from oil shale pyrolysis using isobutane chemical ionization1988-03Ammonia is the predominant nitrogen-containing species formed during the pyrolysis of oil shale. An on-line method of determining ammonia was developed to study kinetics and chemistry of formation and evolution. While fragmentation of water interferes with electron ionization mass spectrometry, chem...
9 Oxidized oil shale for removal of nitrogen oxides in combustion gas streams1993-01-15oxidized oil shale; hot recycled solids; HRS; oil shale retorting; removing nitrogen oxidesOxidized oil shale from the combustor in the LLNL Hot-Recycled-Solids (HRS) oil shale retorting process has been found to be catalyst for removing nitrogen oxides from laboratory gas streams using NH3 as a reductant. Oxidized Green River oil shale heated at 10°C/min in an Ar/02/NO/NH3 mixture (~ 93...

11 Analysis of lacustrine deltaic sedimentation in the Green River Formation, southern Uinta Basin, Utah1991lacustrine deltaic sedimentation; Green River Formation; southern Uinta Basin; sedimentation analysisDetailed lithofacies analysis of over 4,500 m of measured sections of most of the Eocene portion of the fluvial and lacustrine Green River Formation in the south-central Uinta Basin documents twelve lithofacies: Sa (nonsinuous trunk streams), Sb (meandering delta distributary channels), Sc (amalgama...
12 Bituminous sandstone deposits Asphalt Ridge1966-12Asphalt Ridge probably is the second largest bituminous sandstone deposit in northeastern Utah's Uinta Basin. Discontinuous concentrations of bitumen occur in the Rim Rock Sandstone of the Mesaverde Group of Cretaceous age, in the overlying Uinta Formation of Eocene age and the Duchesne River Format...
13 Field guide to lacustrine and related nonmarine depositional environments in tertiary rocks, Uinta Basin, Utah1976-11lacustrine environments; nonmarine depositional environments; tertiary rocksThe lower part of the Tertiary System in the Uinta Basin of northeastern Utah and northwestern Colorado (fig. 1) reflects a series of very complex and variable forms of continental sedimentation in a basin of internal drainage. These complex forms represent the disruption of the Cretaceous depositio...
14 Rates and mechanisms of oil shale pyrolysis: A chemical structure approach2014-11Green River oil shale; oil and natural gas technology; oil shale pyrolysis; chemical structure of oil shaleThree pristine Utah Green River oil shale samples were obtained and used for analysis by the combined research groups at the University of Utah and Brigham Young University. Oil shale samples were first demineralized and the separated kerogen and extracted bitumen samples were then studied by a host...
15 Tar-sand resources of the Uinta Basin, Utah: A catalog of deposits1996-05tar sand; oil-impregnated sandstone; tar sand resources; solid hydrocarbon deposits; bitumous sandstoneTar-sand, or oil-impregnated sandstone, deposits and occurrences of the Uinta Basin, Utah are summarized and presented. Twenty five tar-sand deposits/occurrences are reviewed with respect to geology, locations of bitumen saturated outcrops, land ownership, physiography, bitumen-analyses, development...
16 Uinta Basin tar sand deposits1990Uinta Basin; Tar sand deposits; UtahThis report addresses an important need to the State of Utah; to define, tabulate, and document an economic resource which has aroused the interest of industry and academia and which is vastly undeveloped and little understood as to its potential. The need for this report has grown since the last ta...
17 Assay products from Green River oil shale1986-02-18Pyrolysis stoichiometry; Green River; Oil shale; Oil; Mahogany zone; Colorado; Utah; Pairwise correlation coefficients; Pyrolysis; Elemental analyses of shales and oils; Organic carbon; Gas composition; Elemental composition; Oil shale grade; Raw shaleData from 66 material-balanced assays conducted at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Laramie Energy Technology Center, and The Oil shale Corporation were compiled and analyzed to determine the pyrolysis stoichiometry for Green River formation oil shales originating in and near the Mahogany zon...
