Bureau of Mines. Introduction Fluidized-bed retorting of pulverized oil shale has the advantages of fully utilization of mined oil shale (after crushing and grinding), with the shortest pyrolysis reaction time and highest retorting intensity in comparison with ordinary retorting technologies for processing lump oil shale.

Jenson (page images at HathiTrust) Bulletin (Denver, ), by Colorado. Cooperative Oil Shale Investigation and United States. Bureau of Mines (page images at HathiTrust). The effects of oil shale retorting temperature on the yield of shale oil were studied in a batch reactor.

Fig. 2 shows the accumulated yield of shale oil with time at different retorting temperatures. Shale oil started to be produced when the reactor temperature reached °C and shale oil yield and reaction termination time were different at Cited by: To determine the retorting characteristics of a column of mine-run, ungraded oil shale ranging in size from fines to 5-ton pieces, a ton batch-type retort was designed and constructed at the Bureau of Mines Laramie Energy Research Center, Laramie, Wyoming.

10, 12 The composition of shale oil can vary depending on the composition of the raw oil shale and the retorting method (i.e., pyrolysis method) used for producing the oil. 13,14 Shale. Colony Shale Oil Project was an oil shale development project at the Piceance Basin near Parachute Creek, Colorado.

The project consisted of an oil shale mine and pilot-scale shale oil plant, which used the TOSCO II retorting technology, developed by Tosco Corporation. Over time the project was developed by a consortium of different companies until it was terminated.

By the eve of the US Civil War, more than 50 companies in Canada and the United States were retorting shale to distill oil from rocks (albeit none very successfully), most of which was used to produce kerosene.

Mormon settlers founded the first known oil shale operation in the Rocky Mountain West, perhaps as early as retorting technology to produce shale oil. The third and final phase is cool-ing and surface reclamation.

Vawter) Paraho II TM Plant in AustraliaFile Size: 1MB. Shell shuts down oil shale pilot project near Rifle. The company’s research has been focused on the idea of inserting heating rods into the deeply buried oil shale deposits in western Colorado to liquefy and extract an oil-like substance called kerogen.

which in May shut down its oil shale mining and retorting project up. Retorting in which the process heat requirement is accomplished by a combustion of a portion of the oil shale within the retort.

Ex situ retorting Oil shale retorting performed aboveground (requiring mining of the oil shale) In situ retorting Heating of oil shale underground in order to release shale oil (also called underground retorting).

Oil shale can be used as a fuel in thermal power plants, wherein oil shale is burnt like coal to drive the steam turbines. As ofthere are oil shale-fired power plants in Estonia with a generating capacity of 2, megawatts (MW), China, and Germany.
