Title

Boiling Range Distributions of Various Shale Oils and Influence of Carbon Dioxide Retorting

Abstract

The boiling range distributions of seven different shale oils from the United States and Australia which were retorted in the same retort under identical conditions were obtained and compared. These data are important in forming an engineering data base for shale oils. Also, the effects of carbon dioxide retorting versus nitrogen retorting on oil quality were investigated. Through the study of the initial and final boiling points and the boiling range distribution it was found that carbon dioxide retorting increased the yield of low to mid-distillate fractions in the shale oil, thus enhancing the oil quality.
