OCLC Number: Notes: Contract AT() Work supported by th U.S. Department of Energy under contract DE-ACDP May Description. An in situ oil shale process is described comprising the steps of: retorting raw oil shale in situ to liberate light hydrocarbon gases, shale oil and shale-laden retort water containing suspended and dissolved impurities including raw and spent oil shale particulates, shale oil, organic carbon, carbonates, ammonia and chemical oxygen demand; separating the light hydrocarbon gases . In ex situ production, oil shale is mined, crushed, and then subjected to thermal processing at the surface in an oil shale retort. Both pyrolysis and combustion have been used to treat oil shale in a surface retort. In in situ production, the shale is left in place and the retorting (e.g., heating) of the shale occurs in the ground. Geological Overview of Oil Shale. of Land Management stated that surface mining and retort operations produce 2 to processed oil shale. In situ processing, according to .

Leachate Migration from an In-Situ Oil-Shale Retort near Rock Springs, Wyoming By Kent C. Glover Abstract Hydrogeologic factors influencing leachate movement from an in-situ oil-shale retort near Rock Springs, Wyoming, were investigated through models of ground-water flow and solute transport. Leachate, indicated by the conservative ionAuthor: Kent C. Glover. A tunnel is formed above an in situ oil shale retort in a subterranean deposit containing oil shale. A void is excavated in the retort site, and remaining deposit in the retort site is fragmented by explosively expanding toward the void to form a subterranean cavity containing a fragmented permeable mass of particles containing oil shale. Products of MIS retorting are: • Processed or spent shale (left in situ) • Shale oil (collected at bottom of retort and pumped to the sur- face for processing and transportation) • Retort water {produced on approximately a one-to-one ratio with shale oil with perhaps some residue remaining in in-situ retort) • Gas (treated (sulfur.

An oil shale process is provided to retort oil shale and purify oil shale retort water. In the process, raw oil shale is retorted in an in situ underground retort or in an above ground retort to liberate shale oil, light hydrocarbon gases and oil shale retort water. The retort water is separated from the shale oil and gases in a sump or in a fractionator or quench tower followed by an API oil Cited by: Creep is a major factor in overall deformation of heated shale. Oil shale was found to be an excellent insulator. Loss of pillar support area at hr of heating would be about 10 pct. Good correlation was found between a finite element model using the developed properties and an in situ heater test.
