    History. Union Oil Company of California (Unocal) started its oil shale activities in s. In , it acquired an oil shale tract in the Parachute Creek area of Colorado, southern Piceance Basin. The development of the Union process began in the late s, when the Union A retort was designed. This technology was tested between and at the company-owned tract in Feedstock: oil shale. Exxon shut down its oil shale operations, and the boom came to an end. More recently, new technologies— many pioneered in the Alberta tar sands operations— combined with higher energy prices have generated renewed interest in oil shales. That original oil shale boom produced excessive environ - mental impacts. Oil shale was mined like coal. Exploitation of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources - Hydraulic Fracturing and Other Recovery and Assessment Techniques. Edited by: Kenneth Imo-Imo Eshiet. ISBN , eISBN , PDF ISBN , Published Author: Kenneth Imo-Imo Eshiet. U.S. oil shale reserves are massive but the process of oil extraction is too complex, but this problem may be solved by Royal Dutch Shell's new technology called : Dan Denning.

Shale gas has become the focus of global natural gas exploration, and shale oil plays an important role in unconventional oil and gas exploration. Recently the most important driving force for the rapid growth of crude oil production in world is the shale oil revolution in the United States, whose rapid development has made profound impact on.

Since the early s, oil shale has not been on the U.S. energy policy agenda, and very little attention has been directed at technology or energy market developments that might change the commercial prospects for oil shale.

This report presents an updated assessment of the viability of developing oil shale resources in the United. Since the yearunconventional shale plays have contributed greatly to the global oil and gas supply, particularly in the United States.

Understanding and managing these resources requires a unique understanding about the geology, geophysics, rock physics, and rock mechanics of each reservoir in a seamless interdisciplinary approach.
