    RIFLE, Colo. – The Shell Oil Company has produced 1, barrels of oil from its experimental oil shale project in the Piceance Basin, a company representative reported at the Northwest Oil and Gas Forum in Rifle on Thursday. The model focuses on oil shale production in the Piceance Basin in Colorado, but is inherently designed to be extendable to larger regions, levels of production, and different unconventional fuels. Due to the rising prices of conventional fuel, unconventional fossil fuels such as oil shale, tar sands, and coal to liquid have gained attention as.

    shale oil, and 45 million barrels of liquefied natural gas in Colorado’s Piceance Basin, now the second-largest known shale reserve in the country. n Access to much of these resourc - es is managed by the Forest Ser - vice and Bureau of Land Manage - ment, which have adopted the misguided notion that “keeping it in the ground” is the best.   June 8, , This is the second-largest assessment of potential shale & tight gas resources that the USGS has ever conducted. Note: in early , a Mancos Shale study by the Colorado Mesa University stratigraphically calibrated the Upper Mancos, Prairie Canyon, Niobrara and .

    Description: For years, energy companies have attempted to unlock the large, domestic oil shale resources of northwestern Colorado’s Piceance Basin. For more than a quarter of a century, Shell conducted laboratory and field research on its In Situ (in-ground) Conversion Process to recover kerogen from oily rock formations.   Schlumberger is acquiring about acres of land near De Beque that will serve as a major hub for the world’s largest oil-field-services company.

sources is the oil shale located in Colorado's Piceance Basin. Oil shale is a solid organic material that can be converted to a liquid by heat-ing. The square mile Piceance Basin contains enough oil shale to support a multi-million barrel-per-day (bpd) industry for centuries.

The Piceance Basin consists of both federal and private holdings. The Promise and Peril of Oil Shale Development (February 5) SLIDES: The Logistics and Energy Needs of Oil There are number of issues to be addressed for oil shale development in Colorado’s Piceance Basin. 5 In-situ processing is being pursued in Colorado’s Piceance Basin.

of nahcolite (sodium bicarbonate) in the oil shale deposits of the Parachute Creek Member of the Eocene Green River Formation in the Piceance Basin, northwestern Colorado. More than 69 percent, or billion short tons, of the estimated nahcolite resource is. found in the R–4, L–5, and R–5 oil shale zones.

° 30' °00' 40°00' Caerus Oil and Gas plans to spend about $ million this year drilling and completing natural gas wells in western Colorado's Piceance Basin. The Piceance Basin is the smallest of the three principal basins of the Green River Formation in terms of area covered and contains the highest concentration of high-grade oil shale (capable of generating at least 25 gallons of oil per ton of rock), with approximately billion barrels of in-place oil resource.

The oil and natural gas resources in Region 8 are distinct from other reserves located in the United States. Rich in unconventional natural gas reserves, production in Region 8 is increasingly focused on tight gas sands in Colorado and Wyoming (e.g., Washakie Basin); large oil shale reserves in western Colorado, northeastern Utah, and southwestern.

The story illustrates two points: The largest and richest oil shale deposits in the world are buried in the Piceance Basin. But energy companies face a variety of challenges in their efforts to extract that resource on a commercial scale, said Vawter, executive director of the National Oil Shale.

Oil shale is actually the rock marlstone which contains kerogen, a precursor to oil. The kerogen must be heated to more than degrees to convert it into oil because it was never buried deeply enough for nature to convert the kerogen to oil. People have been trying to economically produce oil from this rock for more than a century.
