Title: Developments in Oil Shale in 1987

Author(s): C. F. Knutson (2), G. F. Dana (3), G. Solti (4), J. L. Qian (5), F. D. Ball (6), A. C. Hutton (7), J. Hanna (8), P. L. Russell (9), E. M. Piper (10)


Oil shale developments continued at a slow pace in 1987. The continuing interest in this commodity is demonstrated by the 342 oil shale citations added to the United States Department of Energy energy database during 1987. The Unocal project in Parachute, Colorado, produced 600,000 bbl of synfuel in 1987.

An appreciable amount of 1987's activity was associated with the nonsynfuel uses of oil shale.
