Abstract:

An engineering planning study was made of the effect of processing shale oil in a refinery processing both shale oil and petroleum to a full product slate including jet fuel. This study was part of an overall program whose object was to investigate the feasibility of producing aviation turbine fuels from synthetic crude oils. In this Phase 3 engineering planning study the results and conclusions of the Phase 1 state-of-the-art assessment and Phase 2 pilot plant experimental study were further investigated. The Exxon RESCUE Linear Program for Refinery Planning was used to provide a framework for the analysis. The study which involved a number of arbitrary but well-defined assumptions, was done in the context of a grass roots refinery processing shale oil and petroleum in segregated operations. Shale oil processing was restricted to distillation and hydrotreating of the kerosene and gas oil fractions, whereas petroleum processing involved a full spectrum of refinery processes with a relatively high level of conversion of heavier fractions to lighter fractions to meet a high motor gasoline demand.
