The Piceance Basin is a geologic structural basin in northwestern Colorado, in the United includes geologic formations from Cambrian to Holocene in age, but the thickest section is made up of rocks from the Cretaceous Period.

The basin contains reserves of coal, natural gas, and oil name likely derives from the Shoshoni word /piasonittsi/ meaning “tall grass” (/pia. 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.

Bureau of Mines RI Book — v, 76 pages, [42] plates (figure 1 in the envelope):. The GHG footprint of shale gas consists of the direct emissions of CO 2 from end-use consumption, indirect emissions of CO 2 from fossil fuels used to extract, develop, and transport the gas, and methane fugitive emissions and venting.

Despite the high level of industrial activity involved in developing shale gas, the indirect emissions of CO 2 are relatively small compared. The largest reserves of coal and coalbed methane are in coal seams that are deeper than ft.

There are four coal basins in the United States where CBM is being produced from deeper horizons the: (1) San Juan Basin, (2) Piceance Basin, (3) Green River Basin, and (4) Uinta Basin. Steven J. Schatzel; Steven J. Schatzel. Methane contents of oil shale from the Piceance Basin, Colorado.

The Piceance Basin, northwestern Colorado, is a hydrocarbon-rich Laramide-age intracratonic basin (Figures 1, 2).The basin includes approximat ft ( m) of Cambrian to Eocene sedimentary rock that contains large oil and gas accumulations, which are produced from Pennsylvanian- to Eoceneage strata.

The potential to produce oil and gas from low-permeability (tight) rocks has expanded rapidly over the last 2 decades.

Over that time, drilling and stimulation technology have advanced, enhancing the ability to produce oil and gas from these impermeable rocks through precise directional drilling, massive multistage hydraulic fracturing, and microseimsic : Jeremy Boak, Robert Kleinberg, Robert Kleinberg.

Methane contents in anthracites are typically quite high, but permeability is lower than bituminous coals because of cleat annealing. while gas from the Piceance basin contains % CO 2.

If these concentrations are more than pipeline specifications, the impurity levels will have to be reduced with amine scrubbing, molecular sieve. The Uinta Basin is separated structurally from the Piceance Basin near the Utah and Colorado border (Figure a).

Similar to the Piceance Basin, coal occurs in the Cretaceous Mancos Shale and the overlying Mesaverde Group at depths of about 1, to over 7, feet below ground surface (Garrison et al., ).

This book looks at developments in oil shale which is the largest untapped domestic resource with the greatest potential to decrease our dependence on foreign oil.

Over 70 per cent of the world's oil shale resources occur in the United States. These deposits contain over trillion barrels of shale oil. The rapid rise of shale gas development through horizontal drilling and high volume hydraulic fracturing has expanded the extraction of hydrocarbon resources in the U.S.

The rise of shale gas development has triggered an intense public debate regarding the potential environmental and human health effects from hydraulic fracturing.

This paper provides a critical review of the Cited by: Coal-bed methane resources of the San Juan basin, New Mexico and Colorado, are contained in more than billion tons of coal, nearly 95% of which (more than billion tons) is in the Upper Cretaceous Fruitland Formation.

Fruitland coals, generally less than 4, ft. Developments in Oil Shale Summary The Green River oil shale formation in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming is estimated to hold the equivalent of trillion barrels of oil equivalent in place.

The shale is generally acknowledged as a rich potential resource; however, it has not generally proved to be economically recoverable. Thus, it is considered to be a contingent resource and not a. Washburn [31] has studied the T 1-T 2 response of four shale samples, three from Piceance basin (outcrop, oil shale and well cuttings) and outcrop sample from unita basin.

This study confirms the ability of the T 1 -T 2 maps to identify different organic maturities present in shale, mainly solid and liquid-like phases.

The Niobrara Petroleum System of the U.S. Rocky Mountain Region is a major tight petroleum resource play.

The Niobrara is self-sourced and reservoirs are low permeability chalks, shales, and sandstones. Source beds have total organic carbon contents that range from 2. Oil shale has been mined in several places around the world since the ’s.

Shell has completed a pilot production operation, in the Green River oil shale in the Piceance Basin, in Colorado; that proved oil shale could be produced in an environmentally friendly and economic way. They estimate the Green River oil shale could ultimately. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) can provide fundamental information on the molecular structure of organic and inorganic components, and is one of the most versatile analytical techniques for the non-destructive, chemical characterization of geological samples, such as coal, shale, fluid and melt inclusions, silicate glass, minerals, and microfossils, e.g., Cited by: As the shale revolution continues in North America, unconventional resource markets are emerging on every continent.

In the next eight to ten years, more thanwells and one- to two-million hydraulic fracturing stages could be executed, resulting in close to one trillion dollars in industry spending.

This growth has prompted professionals experienced in conventional oil Cited by: 1. AAPG Bulletin Datashare.

Biogenic CH4 generation has been observed in many shallow, low temperature shale gas basins and coal seams.

The depletion of conventional resources and the increasing demand of natural gas for human consumption have spurred the development of so-called unconventional gas resources such as shale gas (SG) and coal-bed methane (CBM).

Such. In this issue, you will read about coal-bed methane, a hot topic in Pennsylvania because it is a potential source of clean energy.

In a similar manner, a method for producing methane from an oil shale formation in situ while minimizing production of CO 2 may include controlling the heat from the one or more heat sources to enhance production of methane in the produced mixture and generating heat via at least one or more of the heat sources in a manner that minimizes CO 2.
