202 Porosity modification related to tar sand process water1988-08porosity modification; tar sand process water; tar sand; petroleum recovery; oil resource; tar sand production; bitumen productionLaboratory experiments were conducted to determine the effects of tar sand process water on the mineral components of a sandstone from a known tar sand deposit and on control samples of feldspars of varying compositions. Contact with the process water increased porosity and permeability in the test ...
203 On solar thermal processing and retorting of oil shale1988-05The general concept and a recent paper on solar oil shale retorting are critically reviewed. It is concluded that a recent paper by Berber and Fletcher (Energy 13. 13, 1988) contains erroneously high oil yields and provides no new valid information related to solar oil shale process design or econom...
204 Oil shale retorting in dense phase hot-solid recycle systems1988-06Oil shale processing remains primitive despite more that a century of study and development. To expand the industry in China, and to develop an industry in the U.S.A., more efficient, environmentally acceptable oil shale retorting schemes are required. Rapid pyrolysis, solid-recycle retorts offer hi...
205 Oil shale retorting processes: A technical overview1984-03The challenge facing the oil shale industry is to devise a simple and efficient retorting process that operates at low cost. This will require a thorough understanding of the important physical and chemical processes that occur during retorting, mathematical modeling to analyze the complex interacti...
206 Oil vapor coking kinetics over oxidized Colorado oil shale1991-10-22A model for coking of shale oil vapors over porous oxidized recycle shale has been derived. This model includes mass transfer of the oil vapor through the gas film surrounding the shale particles with countercurrent flow of cracked low-molecular weight products, diffusion through the pore system, ad...

209 QEMSCAN analysis of Green River Formation oil shale samples, Skyline 16 core, eastern Uinta basin, UT2014QEMSCAN; oil shale; Green River Formation; Skyline 16 core; minerologyConclusions in the presentations: 1. QEMscan analysis reveals mineralogic textures dominated by dolomite, illite, and calcite. 2. A few interpretations are made in regards to the documented compositional results generated automatically by the QEMscan: "Background" is assumed to reflect organic matt...

214 West-East core-based cross section through the middle to upper Green River formation, Uinta Basin, Utah - Plate 12014well log; well log cross section; economic oil shale; Mahogany zone; Green River FormationConclusions/observations from west-east cross section: The top of economic oil shale was picked at the top of the lower R-8 zone (top of the Big Three rich oil shale beds). This zone was selected to avoid the abundant saline minerals found in the overlaying saline zone, which often contains high-TDS...

221 North-South core-based cross section through the middle to upper Green River Formation, Uinta Basin, Utah - Plate 22014oil shale; economic oil shale; oil shale zone; cross section; Green River Formation; well log; core logThe top of economic oil shale was picked at the top of the lower R-8 zone (top of the Big Three rich oil shale beds). This zone was selected to avoid the abundant saline minerals found in the overlaying saline zone, which often contains high-TDS water. If saline minerals (and high-TDS water) do not ...
222 Atomistic modeling of oil shale kerogens and asphaltene along with their interactions with the inorganic mineral matrix2011-04atomistic modeling; oil shale kerogens and asphaltene; inorganic mineral matrixThe goal of this project is to obtain and validate three dimensional atomistic models for the organic matter in both oil shales and oil sands. In the case of oil shales the modeling was completed for kerogen, the insoluble portion of the organic matter; for oil sands it was for asphaltenes, a class ...
