254 Biofuels--snake oil for the twenty-first century2008-12-01Most Americans are painfully aware that our present consumption of petroleum is unsustainable. The United States has less than 5% of the world's population, but consumes 24.4% of the world's petroleum production. Only 8.5% of the world's petroleum production comes from American wells, which necessit...
255 Biological markers from Green River kerogen decomposition1981-09Isoprenoid and other hydrocarbons that are formed in living organisms and preserved in ancient sediments are often called biological markers. The purpose of this paper is to develop improved methods of using isoprenoid hydrocarbons to trace petroleum or shale oil to its source. It is demonstrated th...
256 Biomakers in oil shale: Occurrence and applications1982-10Biological markers, compounds derived essentially unchanged from living organisms, are found in oil-bearing rocks, petroleum and most ancient sediments. We are investigating the variation in ratios of certain biomarkers in shale oils and their use as tracers for relating oil to source rock during in...
257 Bitumen and very heavy crude upgrading technology: A review of long term R&D opportunities2004-03-31bitumen; very heavy crude; upgrading technology; R&D opportunities; upgrade bitumen; oil sands bitumenThe 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 ...
258 Bitumen deposits of northwest Alabama1987bitumen deposits; northwest Alabama deposits; bituminous rocksBituminous rocks of Mississippian age crop out in northwest Alabama within a 113-km (70-mi) long belt. Bitumen deposits have been confirmed by coreholes to be present in the subsurface for a distance of at least 16-24 km (10-15 mi) south of the outcrop. Geochemical analyses indicate the bitumen to b...
259 Bitumen extraction and treatment and reuse of process water2009-04-13bitumen extraction; bitumen treatment; reuse of process water; produced water; crude oil production; gas production; pressure-assisted ozonation technology; oil removal from water; wastewater treatment; hydrocarbon removalProduced water from gas and crude oil production is voluminous, requiring extensive treatment before it can be safely discharged or reused. This project has used a newly developed pressure-assisted ozonation technology to remove oil from water and prevent oil sheen at the water surface. The new proc...
260 Bitumen recovery from tar sands1984-09-11Patent; Bitumen recovery; Tar sands; Kerosene; Flotation cell; BitumenA process for recovering bitumen from tar sands wherein the tar sands are pretreated with a diluent, such as kerosene in the preferred embodiment, to lower the viscosity of the bitumen such that it is in the range of about 5 to about 20 poise at the digestion temperature. The tar sands are then dige...
261 The bitumen-bearing Paleozoic carbonate trend of northern Alberta1987Paleozoic carbonate trend; northern Alberta; bitumen; Cretaceous oil sands; Canada; crude oil; nonconventional oil resourcesHuge quantities of bitumen are contained within the Devonian and Mississippian carbonate horizons that subcrop beneath the Cretaceous oil sands of northern Alberta. To date, however, a detailed evaluation of the economic potential of this resource has been confined primarily to the Upper Devonian Gr...
262 Bituminous sands and some legal aspects of leasing1964A brief description of the more important bituminous sand deposits of Utah at Asphalt Ridge, Sunnyside, Whiterocks River, and other localities. Discussion of their probable origin and present physical qualities with comparison to liquid oil and natural solid bitumen deposits in Utah. Capsule history...
263 Bituminous sands and viscous crude oils1964-10-10Bituminous sands; Viscous crude oils; Rocky Mountain region; Low gravity; high viscosity; Heavy crude oil; Quiet Revolution; Thermal recovery; Utah; Bituminous sandstone depositsBituminous sandstones of the Rocky Mountain region contain large reserves of low gravity, highly viscous oil that can be recovered at costs equal to or less than the cost of finding and producing oil from conventional methods. Heavy crude oil is defined as "oil which cannot be produce through the no...
264 Bituminous sandstone and limestone deposits of Utah1963The significant bituminous sandstone and bituminous Limestone deposits of Utah are located within, or on the edges of, the Uinta Basin. They are all located within the boundaries of Carbon, Duchesne, and Uintah Counties. The Sunnyside deposits in Carbon County contain the greatest reserves of bitumi...
265 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...
266 Bituminous sandstones in the Uinta Basin1964The largest single deposit of bituminous sandstones in the United States is found in the Uinta Basin. This deposit along with two other well known occurrences of bituminous sandstones in the northeastern portion of the basin have proved reserves exceeding 1% billion barrels of oil. The reserve calcu...
267 The bituminous sandstones of the Asphalt Ridge area, northeastern Utah1957bitumous sandstone; Asphalt Ridge area; stratigraphy; oil; asphalt saturationThe bituminous sandstones in the Asphalt Ridge area represent the seepage of millions of barrels of oil. The asphalt sands herein described lie 3 to 4 miles west and south of the town of Vernal, Utah. The deposits were mentioned in an early report by Eldridge (1901), who visited the deposits but did...
268 Brief history and recent developments in tar sand deposits of Uinta Basin1985Commercial production of oil from bituminous sandstones, more commonly referred to as "Tar sands", is considered by many to be a viable project. These so-called "heavy oil" deposits represent a very considerable reserve of oil for the future. The Uinta basin is Mother Nature's storehouse of exotic b...
