83 3-D structure of a local minimum of the Siskin model of oil shale kerogen using the RHF/STO-3G method2008Siskin model; oil shale kerogen; RHF/STO-3G method; kerogen; 3-D structure of kerogen; oil shaleKerogen is a mixture of organic chemical compounds that make up a portion of the organic matter in sedimentary rocks. It is insoluble in normal organic solvents because of the huge molecular weight (upwards several thousand Daltons). When heated in the Earth's crust, (oil window ca. 6 ∞-120∞C; g...
84 Water for commercial oil shale development in Utah: Allocating scarce resources and the search for new sources of supply2010commercial oil shale development; allocating resources; oil shale; bitumenBACKGROUND A. What Is Oil Shale and Why Do We Care? Oil shale is a sedimentary rock containing solid bituminous materials. When oil shale is heated, petroleum-like liquids and gasses are released. The process of heating shale and capturing resulting liquids and gasses is called retorting and can occ...
85 Treatment of produced water by pressure-assisted ozonation and sand filtration2009produced water; pressure assisted ozonization; sand filtration; energy production; heavy petroleum sources; oil sandsEver increasing energy demand worldwide necessitates energy production from heavy petroleum sources such as oil sands and oil shale. Extraction of bitumen from oil sands and in situ extraction of kerogen from oil shale result in large quantities of water containing hydrocarbon contaminants. The cont...
86 Heightened oil sands extraction by pressure cycles2009oil sands extraction; pressure cycles; hot water extraction of bitumenHot water extraction of bitumen from oil sands has been commercially applied for decades. The extraction process is greatly aided by the addition of caustics and other reagents, which can adversely impact handling and disposal at process end. Recent attention has been on increasing process efficienc...
