The Evaluation Of Western Shale Oil As A Feedstock For The Production Of High-Density Aviation Turbine Fuel
The processing of western shale oil, coal-derived liquid, and tar sand oil has been the subject of several studies sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Defense. For the most part, these studies evaluated conventional petroleum processes for the production of specification-grade fuels. For example, Sullivan et al. (1978) and Sullivan and Frumkin (1986) studied conventional refining processes for the production of transportation fuels from shale oils and coal-derived liquids. Moore et al. (1981) studied the production of military jet fuels from western shale oil by a process that combined hydrogenation, acid extraction of nitrogen compounds, and fluid catalytic cracking. A combination of hydrogenation, acid extraction, and hydro cracking was also studied by Reif et al. (1982) for converting western shale oil to jet fuels. Other research sponsored by the Air Force investigated the conversion of tar sand oils and heavy petroleum to military jet fuels (Moore et al. 1987; Talbot et al. 1986). These studies demonstrated that conventional aircraft turbine fuels could be made from several unconventional fossil fuel sources...
