Oil shale resources in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming by United States. Bureau of Land Management Download PDF EPUB FB2

Colorado has the world’s largest resources of oil shale, by far. 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. Oil shale is an organic-rich fine-grained sedimentary rock containing kerogen (a solid mixture of organic chemical compounds) from which liquid hydrocarbons can be produced, called shale oil (not to be confused with tight oil—crude oil occurring naturally in shales).

Shale oil is a substitute for conventional crude oil; however, extracting shale oil from oil shale is more costly than the Primary: Kerogen, Quartz, Feldspar, Clay, Carbonate. The USGS Energy Resources Program has studied oil shale resources of the United States, with a significant effort on the Eocene Green River Formation of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming.

This formation contains the largest oil shale deposits in the world. Oil shale, despite the name, does not actually contain oil, but is a precursor of oil that is. Utah’s oil-shale deposits are located in the Uinta Basin of northeastern Utah. The estimated in-ground resources are over billion barrels of oil—some of the largest oil-shale resources in the world.

Utah oil shale was deposited as organic-rich sediments in a freshwater lake.

Location: The Green River Basin Oil Shale Field is located in Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado which extends on the Western side of the rocky Mountains. The main part of the Green River Basin Formation though, is located in the southwest portion of Wyoming in the middle of cities Evanston and Rock Springs.

The other two basins, the Uinta Basin of eastern Utah and westernmost Colorado, and the Greater Green River Basin of southwest Wyoming, northwestern Colorado, and northeastern Utah also contain large resources of oil shale in the Green River Formation, and these two basins will be assessed separately.

This report presents an in-place assessment of the oil shale and nahcolite resources of the Green River Formation in the Piceance Basin of western Colorado. Oil shale resources in Colorado Piceance Basin is one of three large structural and sedimentary basins that contain vast amounts of oil shale resources in the Green River Formation of Eocene age.
