Oil shale, potential environmental impacts and control technology. Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Industrial Environmental Research Laboratory, (OCoLC) Technology may help control the potential adverse environmental effects of oil shale development in accordance with current and future US environmental policy.

Wan ©Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS) The amount of oil sludge is about 2% of shal e oil produced; its form ation causes not only the loss of shale oil but also pollution of environment.   Sohrab Zendehboudi PhD, Alireza Bahadori PhD, CEng, in Shale Oil and Gas Handbook, 2 Description of Oil Shale Processing. Shale oil processing is defined as an industrial process to which raw shale oil is subjected to extract oil from it—basically a process to produce unconventional oil [1].Because shale oil exists as solid sedimentary rocks, its extraction is more complex than.

Deep Shale Oil and Gas provides an introduction to shale gas resources as well as offer a basic understanding of the geomechanical properties of shale, the need for hydraulic fracturing, and an indication of shale gas processing. The book also examines the issues regarding the nature of shale gas development, the potential environmental impacts.   Shale Oil and Gas Research Institute, Peking University, Beijing , China Abstract: Through comprehensive investigation of the environmental issues in shale gas development in the US, the environmental impacts of hydraulic fracturing in shale gas development are summarized to provide reference for the shale gas development and man- agement.   Hydraulic fracturing (fracking), combined with horizontal drilling, has made previously inaccessible oil and gas reserves trapped in shale rock commercially viable, though research arguably indicates evidence of risk to environment [] and public health [].The technology may cause adverse impacts to water supply, ground and surface water contamination [], air quality impacts [21, 22], and. If shale rock is a capable source rock, there is potential for it to store economic quantities of gas. The potential of a shale formation to contain economic quantities of gas can be evaluated by identifying specic source rock characteristics such as total organic .

EarthTalk From the Editors of E/The Environmental Magazine Dear EarthTalk: Are the United States’ vast oil shale resources a potential source of energy? -- Larry LeDoux, Honolulu, HI Oil shale is a fine-grained sedimentary rock that contains significant amounts of kerogen, a solid mixture of organic chemical compounds that can be converted into synthetic liquid fuel. @article{osti_, title = {Jordanian oil shale future processing and its impact on the environment}, author = {Hamarneh, Y M}, abstractNote = {According to the author, during mining, processing and direct combusting of Jordanian oil shales, major environmental effects can be expected testifying to the feasibility of the removal of some negative environmental consequences associated .   The environmental effects of shale gas are varied - wide ranges of importance and risk level.
