    This paper describes the original plans, progress and accomplishments, and future plans for nine oil shale research, development and demonstration (RD&D) projects on six existing RD&D leases awarded in and by the United States Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to Shell, Chevron, EGL (now AMSO), and OSEC (now Enefit American, respectively); as well as three. It is Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum. Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum listed as BMP Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum - How is Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum abbreviated? And then there was a vocal contingent of fiscal conservatives who objected to government funding of oil shale research and who asserted that oil shale was a boondoggle. Many in that same camp maintained that the whole thing was a chimera and that oil shale was fundamentally uneconomical as a fossil fuel resource and should be left undisturbed. A plan is presented for production of oil by retorting oil shale in situ after breaking it with underground nuclear explosives. Reserves of oil shale of thickness and grade suitable (greater than 20 gal/ton) for this process occur in the Piceance Creek Basin of Colorado, and are estimated to .

    The Colorado School of Mines (CSM), along with the Colorado Energy Research Institute (CERI), will host the 29th Oil Shale Symposium at the Green Center on the Colorado School of Mines Campus. The Symposium will review development of oil shale resources worldwide, including research & development, impact analysis, regulatory framework, and.

The two-volume analysis, published in March Even when fully extracted and processed, oil shale will not yield petroleum of the same quality as light crude. Across the board, sulfur content averages %, but can be as high as high 10%. The API gravity also tends to be lower for oil shale, especially for when processing takes place above ground.

Oil shale is an organic-rich fine-grained sedimentary rock containing kerogen from which liquid hydrocarbons can be produced, called shale oil.

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.

The resource potential of these shales is estimated to be the equivalent of trillion barrels of oil in place. Retorted oil shale yields liquid hydrocarbons in the range of middle-distillate fuels, such as jet and diesel fuel.

However, because oil shales have not proved to be economically recoverable, they are.
