Abstract:

Shale-derived JP-5, JP-8, aviation turbine fuels and marine diesel fuel were analyzed for compliance with military specifications and evaluated for storage stability, corrosion tendencies, additive response, compatibility with petroleum fuels and microbiological growth susceptibility. The shale fuels behaved very much like petroleum-derived fuels. Turbine combustor evaluation showed a likeness to petroleum-derived Jet A fuel. Performance tests of the shale fuels conducted in four diesel engines also indicated a similarity with the same tests performed with petroleum-derived fuels. Author
