The major portion of the soluble extract from Mahogany zone oil-shale samples can be fractionated into about 1% n-alkanes, 3% branched alkanes, 21% cyclic alkanes, 2% aromatic oil, 63%resins, and.

Analysis by scanning electron microscope The surface of the sample of oil shale calcined at °C and hydrated for half an hour was examined with an environmental scanning electron microscope (ESEM) QuantaTM Series, coupled to an X-ray microanalysis (EDX-detector EDAX) and a detector for backscattered electrons. The Devonian-Mississippian transition was a time of climatic and tectonic change (Fig. 2). The Devonian-Mississippian black shales (Ohio and Sunbury shales) were deposited at the end of a global greenhouse state, a time of warm, equable climate with low latitudinal thermal gradients, high CO 2 concentrations, and elevated sea levels (Fischer.

A new locality of Frasnian radiolarian chert and siliceous shale is reported in the Vilabouly area, within the Truong Son fold belt of central Laos, in the eastern part of the Indochina Terrane.

Every time the first high resolution SEM images of the newest shale play get to the interpreting scientist, there is a wave of excitement.

Mahogany zone, the subject of this report, is the most wide-spread and richest oil shale zone in both basins and has been the target of most oil shale extraction projects. The Mahogany zone was deposited during the greatest expanse of Eocene Lake Uinta, a long-lived lacustrine system that produced the oilCited by: 4.

Measurements have been made on the chemical and physical properties of two oil shales designated as reference oil shales by the Department of Energy. One oil shale is a Green River Formation, Parachute Creek Member, Mahogany Zone Colorado oil shale from the Exxon Colony mine and the other is a Clegg Creek Member, New Albany shale from Kentucky.
