Transcript of Oil Shale Presentation

By: Caleb, Jack and Zach Renewable or nonrenewable? How oil shale is harvested and converted into a usable energy form Who and how our energy source is used Oil shale is a nonrenewable energy source. It's nonrenewable because it will run out after constant use and mining. It provides oil for 15 years. Advantages and Disadvantages Oil shale harvesting is performed above ground.
They mine the oil shale from under the Earths
surface. The oil shale is then brought up to treating
facilities and processing facilities. In other words, They mine and crush it, then they retort it, then it's either oil upgrading or spent oil shale disposal on-site, oil to refinery, and spent shale disposal to reclamation. Extra information Advantages: Disadvantages: 1. Oil Shale generally contains enough oil that it will burn without any additional burn -Potential to produce a superior liquid-fuel product

-Low sulfur content and therefore less air pollution

-Abundant availability in countries such as the USA -Disposal of oil shale could create pro logical problems.

-Cost of fuel production from oil shale have not yet been fully evaluated

-The complete technology for cost-effective mining and oil extraction from oil shale has not yet been fully developed. 2. The oil substances in oil shale are solid and cannot be pumped directly out of the ground Cited Sources 3. After mining oil shale is transported to a facility for retorting (MLA Format) 4. Many countries do not have significant oil shale resources, but in the countries that do they have a great significant oil shale resources. 5. Oil shale was formed millions of years ago by deposition of silt and organic debris on lake beds and sea bottoms. "Oil Shale." Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation, 24 Oct. 2012.

It is also used for kerosene,jet fuel, and diesel fuel. Scientist use it for their projects. THE END And the people who use it would be the marines and also scientist's use it.
