Abstract:

270 BARRELS OF SPECIFICATION JP-4 jet fuel were produced by hydrorefining 890 barrels of raw Geokinetics shale oil under severe operating conditions in a continuous process development unit. On a once thru basis the yield of JP-4 off the hydrotreater was about 35 volume of the feed. Preliminary estimates of plant investments and economics indicate that for the combination severe hydrorefining and hydrocracking, an 85 volume yield can be attained based on total refinery energy input. Capital investments and manufacturing costs do not appear to be excessive for a shale oil refinery. Author
