Shale Oil and Gas Handbook [Book]

Oil shale is an organic-rich fine-grained sedimentary rock containing kerogen a solid mixture of organic chemical compounds from which liquid hydrocarbons can be produced, called shale oil not to be confused with tight oil — crude oil occurring naturally in shales. Shale oil is a substitute for conventional crude oil; however, extracting shale oil from oil shale is more costly than the production of conventional crude oil both financially and in terms of its environmental impact. A estimate of global deposits set the total world resources of oil shale equivalent of 6. Heating oil shale to a sufficiently high temperature causes the chemical process of pyrolysis to yield a vapor. Upon cooling the vapor, the liquid shale oil —an unconventional oil —is separated from combustible oil-shale gas the term shale gas can also refer to gas occurring naturally in shales. Oil shale can also be burned directly in furnaces as a low-grade fuel for power generation and district heating or used as a raw material in chemical and construction-materials processing. Oil shale gains attention as a potential abundant source of oil whenever the price of crude oil rises.
