1 GilsoniteGlisonite is a black, pitch-like substance which occurs in pure form in large veins in the Tertiary sediments of the Uinta Basin. It is a homogenous petroleum substance (technically it is a predominently aromatic asphaltite) which fuses relatively easily and burns like tar. Glisonite is brittle and ...glisonite; bitumen; asphalt-based petroleum; glisonite ore1961-06
2 Geological assessment of heavy-oil reservoirs in the Lloydminster area, using a computerized data baseHeavy-oil reservoirs of the Lower Cretaceous Mannville Group in the Lloydminster area (Western Canada) occur in a sequence of complexly arranged sandstones, siltstones, shales, and coals.

6 California plio-miocene oils: Evidence of early generationEarly generation of oil from Monterey and equivalent source rocks may well be the primary controlling factor on oil quality in the coastal basins of California.

The wide range of chemical characteristics of these oils is com...plio-miocene oils; California oil; source rocks; commercial generation; LOM; hydrocarbon concentration; oil quality1987
7 An echoing in-situ combustion oil recovery project in a Utah tar sandU.S. tar sand resources contain an estimated 30 billion bbl (4.7 Gm3) of oil in place in about 550 occurrences in 22 states. Over 90% of the known resources are in six large deposits in Utah, each containing from 1 to 16 billion bbl (0.15 to 2.5 Gm3) of oil. 1 Four major tar sand deposits in combustion; oil recovery project; Utah tar sand; echoing in-situ; U.S. tar sand resources; reverse combustion process; heterogeneous tar sand reservoir1982
8 Bitumen and very heavy crude upgrading technology: A review of long term R&D opportunitiesThe Focus of this Review: This review has focused on the identification of emerging and developing technologies that can, when fully developed, either be applied directly to upgrade bitumen and very heavy crudes, or are integral to new approaches to upgrading. Although very heavy crudes do not have ...bitumen; very heavy crude; upgrading technology; R&D opportunities; upgrade bitumen; oil sands bitumen2004-03-31
9 Comparative study of organic rich solids present in Utah and Athabasca oil sandsThe presence of humic matter modifies the hydrophilic character of some oil sand solids surfaces and thereby results in serious problems in bitumen recovery using water-based processes. In the present work the fraction enriched with humic matter was separated from the bulk of Utah oil sand solids, rich solids; Utah oil sands; Athabasca oil sands; comparative study of oil sands1989
10 Extraction of hydrocarbons from Antrim oil shaleThe Dow Chemical Company has performed a variety of in situ experiments on the Antrim oil shale which underlies Michigan. These experiments have ranged from in situ combustion in a quarry to attempted extraction at a depth of 2,600 feet (780 m). Currently, Dow is continuing its efforts to obtain hyd...hydrocarbon extraction; Antrim oil shale; oil shale; hydrocarbon recovery1978
11 A heavy-oil case study on a single well in Venezuela, MFM-7s, using cores and logsPlanning for optimum production from heavy-oil reservoirs requires a deep understanding of their geological and petrophysical characteristics, synthesized from intermittent core and continuous log data. In this paper the study developed for the MFM-7S well, operated by S. A. Meneven in the Faja Petr...heavy-oil case study; Venezuela well; MFM-7s; well cores; well logs; heavy-oil reservoirs1987
12 Coking poor coking coals and hydrocracked tar sand bitumen binderA process is described for producing metallurgical coke from poor coking coals in which there is combined with the poor coking coals a small amount of an additive consisting of a bitumen residue obtained from hydrocracking of bitumen from tar sands. The residue used is that from vacuum distillation ...1980-11-18
13 An assessment of oil shale and tar sand development in the state of Utah: Phase 2--policy analysisThe potential development of synthetic fuels in the United States has been characterized by a great variation in preceived economies. The interest has been on an upswing during the decade of the 1970's due to the possibility of synthetic fuels lessening U.S. dependence on foreign oil. However, even ...Oil shale; Tar sand development; Utah; Synthetic fuels; Uintah Basin; Northeastern Utah; Petroleum reserves; Tar sand; Oil; Synthetic Fuel commercialization viability1982
14 A brief history of early mineral exploitation in the Uinta BasinEarly mining activities in the Uinta Basin can be summarized by saying that they included mining for gilsonite, coal, copper, iron, oil shale, ozocerite, wurtzilite, and oil and asphalt (under the placer mining laws). Of these minerals only coal and gilsonite were produced in commercially significan...Uinta Basin; Mining; Uintah Valley; Indian Reservation; Meeker; Utah; History of early mineral exploitation; Uintah Reservation; Gilsonite; Coal; Copper; Iron; Oil shale; Ozocerite; Wurtzilite; Oil; Asphalt; Ashley Creek; Hatchtown; Vernal; Fort Duchesne; Ouray Subagency1964
15 Fluidized bed pyrolysis of bitumen-impregnated sandstone at sub-atmospheric conditionsA 15.2 cm diameter fluidized bed reactor was designed, built, and operated to study the pyrolysis of oil sands at pressures slightly less than atmospheric. Fluidizing gas flow through the reactor was caused by reducing the pressure above the bed with a gas pump operating in the vacuum mode.
