      One tonne of commercial grade oil shale may yield from about to litres (L) of oil, that is approximately a half to one barrel of shale oil per tonne of oil shale. Australia has a large unconventional and currently non-producing identified shale oil resource of PJ (22 mmbbl) which could potentially contribute to future oil.   Estimates of the size of shale oil and gas resources in the United States by the Energy Information Administration (EIA), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and the Potential Gas Committee--three organizations that estimate the size of these resources--have increased over the last 5 years, which could mean an increase in the nation's energy : U. S. Government Accountability Office.

      A estimate set the total world resources of oil shale equivalent to yield of trillion barrels ( billion cubic metres) of shale oil, with the largest resource deposits in the United States accounting more than 80% of the world total y: Kerogen, Quartz, Feldspar, Clay, Carbonate, . Unlike many of its shale peers, EOG Resources has been drilling for returns and not merely shooting just for high oil and gas volumes. The company has set a high hurdle for new wells: They should.

      Shares of oil companies Devon Energy, Continental Resources, and Apache rose more than 80% in April, according to data provided by S&P Global Market Intelligence. Devon's shares were up % Author: John Bromels. Caineng Zou, in Unconventional Petroleum Geology (Second Edition), Oil Shale. Oil shale, also called raw oil shale, refers to the high-ash solid combustible organic rock with oil content greater than %.It has sapropelic, humus, or mixed origin with a calorific value generally ≥ MJ/kg. It is different from coal in that its ash content is greater than 40% and different from.

of 40 million tonnes of oil shale, although no commercial application exists for the products which can be produced. LOCATION AND ACCESS Most of the known occurrences of oil shale are in northern Tasmania, where the oil shale crops out discontinuously along a broad belt some 48 km long.

The name of the discoverer of oil shale in Tasmania was not recorded in the annals of that time: The earliest account appears in the "Papers and Proceedings-of the Royal Society of Van Diemen's Land" in a paper read by J.

Milligan in the year It was the original purpose of the writer to deal with the two types of shale, namely, tasmanite and the so-called torbanites or kerosene shales Author: A Mcintosh Reid. Tasmanian Oil Shale Resources Oil Shale The term oil shale is a misnomer as the oil bearing rock is neither oil nor shale.

Itis a sedimentary rock that contains an organic substance known as kerogen. Kerogen is a solid hydrocarbon ofindeterminate composition, that on the application ofheat, releases oil and gas.

The vertical scale is in thousands of barrels of in-place shale oil per acre and the horizontal scales are in UTM coordinates.

Although shale-oil plays with oil stored in open-fractured shale have been pursued for more than 99yr, organic-rich and low-permeability shales and hybrid shale-oil systems are now being pursued based on knowledge and technologies gained from production of shale-gas resource systems and likely hold the largest untapped oil resource potential.

The shale oil resources assessed in this report, combined with EIA’s prior estimate of U.S. tight oil resources that are predominantly in shales, add approximately 11 percent to the 3, billion barrels of proved and unproved technically recoverable nonshale oil resourcesFile Size: 2MB.

Oil shale deposits, varying by age and origin, are located in Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania. As of the total amount of the demonstrated resource is estimated at 58 billion tonnes.

[1]. Although shale oil in today's () world market is not competitive with petroleum, natural gas, or coal, it is used in several countries that possess easily exploitable deposits of oil shale but lack other fossil fuel resources. Some oil-shale deposits contain minerals and metals that add byproduct value such as alum [KAl(SO 4) H 2 O.

International shale resources, environmental concerns, and policy issues are also addressed. This book is intended as a reference on shale gas and tight oil for industry members, undergraduate and graduate students, engineers and geoscientists.

Shale gas in particular has become a focus of global unconventional oil and gas exploration and development. Objectively, shale has petroleum detention; however, great breakthroughs have not been made in shale oil. Thus, although shale oil may become significant in the future, its development depends on the advancement of industrial technologies.

Oil Recovery in Shale and Tight Reservoirs delivers a current, state-of-the-art resource for engineers trying to manage unconventional hydrocarbon resources. Going beyond the traditional EOR methods, this book helps readers solve key challenges on the proper methods, technologies and options available.Shale oil is an unconventional oil produced from oil shale rock fragments by pyrolysis, hydrogenation, or thermal processes convert the organic matter within the rock into synthetic oil and resulting oil can be used immediately as a fuel or upgraded to meet refinery feedstock specifications by adding hydrogen and removing impurities such as sulfur and nitrogen.Oil shale is a type of sedimentary rock that is rich in kerogen.

Kerogen is a part of rock that breaks down and releases hydrocarbons when heated. Hydrocarbons are substances made entirely of hydrogen and carbon. Petroleum and natural gas are probably the most familiar hydrocarbons.

The hydrocarbons in oil shale can be used as an alternative to petroleum or natural gas.
