Shale oil production kerogen

Shale Oil or Oil Shale? Oil Shale. Shale Oil. Kerogen-rich shale, i.e. organic in the Jurassic shales to be heated sufficiently to produce free hydrocarbons. 7 Nov 2010 Oil shale is a misnomer because kerogen isn't crude oil, and the rock Although estimates of the cost to produce oil shale vary widely, the 

Shale Oil. Shale oil is a synthetic crude oil produced by retorting oil shale and is the pyrolysis product of the organic matter (kerogen) contained in it. 20 Oct 2019 Oil shale is essentially rock that contains solid bits of kerogen, as the gas produced can be recycled back in to produce more heat, and the  4 Mar 2013 Oil shale is a type of sedimentary rock that is rich in kerogen. Companies can also refine shale oil to produce other commercial products,  With energy becoming short, other countries are again investigating their oil shale resources. The shale oil produced in the year 1972 was estimated at 10 million t

Oil shale refers to rock that has kerogen, a precursor to oil, stored in it. Although shale oil doesn’t technically have any oil in it, it does have the potential to produce it. As mentioned previously, oil forms when plant and animal remains, usually called organic material, are subjected to heat and pressure underground over millions of years.

Obtaining shale oil from oil shale involves heating kerogen in a process called pyrolysis. Pyrolysis is a form of heating without the use of oxygen. At about 60-160 degrees Celsius (140-320 degrees Fahrenheit), kerogen reaches its natural “oil window.” The technology for producing oil from oil shale is based on pyrolysis of the rock. Applied heat breaks the various chemical bonds of the kerogen macromolecules, liberating small molecules of liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons as well as nitrogen, sulfur, and oxygen compounds. Oil shale may contain between 60 and 90% mineral matter (non-organic), while coal will contain, by definition, less than 40%. The kerogen within oil shale is also of different organic composition than coal, which enjoys a more matured organic makeup that is lower in hydrogen and higher in oxygen than oil shale kerogen.
