Abstract. The hydrocarbon, oxygen and nitrogen functionalities in Rundle Ramsay Crossing oil shale (RXOS) and Green River oil shale (GROS) have been characterized and quantified using selective/nondestructive chemical derivatizations with isotopically labeled reagents followed by solid state 13 C-and 29 Si-NMR analysis. In addition, in-depth MS and NMR characterization of the structural Cited by: The composition of organic matter extracted from Green River shale by supercritical techniques is compared with the composition of Green River shale oil produced by several pilot-scale retorting.

Oil shales, kukersite, and torbanite represent types of carbonaceous material that contain various amounts of organic matter, commonly called kerogen, from which high yields of oil can be produced at elevated temperatures, even though the constitutions of the kerogens differ. The total organics content of the oil shale of Green River Formation usually ranges from 13to 16% [ As shown in Table , the soluble bitumen content of Green River oil-shale sample is about 20%, whereas the kerogen content is about 80%. For the majority of the typical kerogens, the content of associated bitumens is commonly below 10%. Oil shales are broadly dermed as petroleum source rocks containing sufficiently high contents of organic matter (above ca wt. %) to make utilisation a possibility. Like coal, the world's reserves of oil shales are vast being many times larger than those proven for crude oil. Indeed, some of. The major portion of the organic material in Green River oil shale consists of the insoluble kerogen. Considerable research has been conducted on kerogen during the past few decades, most of which up to was abstracted by Robinson and Stanfield.
