Index / Oil Shale / Other

Oil shale, an organic-rich fine-grained sedimentary rock, contains significant amounts of kerogen (a solid mixture of organic chemical compounds) from which technology can extract liquid hydrocarbons. The name oil shale represents a double misnomer, as geologists would not necessarily classify the rock as a shale, and its kerogen differs from crude oil. Kerogen requires more processing to use than crude oil, which increases its cost as a crude-oil substitute both financially and in terms of its environmental impact.... More →

The oil asphaltene has structural similarity with parent kerogen. The kinetic data based on actual data from the reservoir oil is found to be a better method in reducing the risks associated with oil exploration and assessing the petroleum generation characteristics. An attempt has been made to assess the petroleum expulsion temperature/timing for predicting the kitchen in South Cambay Basin using oil asphaltene kinetics. The Gandhar field covers an area of about 800 km2 and is located on the rising northwestern flank of the Broach depression in the Jambusar-Broach
block. The Olpad Format... More →
