    The borehole is the first of two deep, large-diameter, unsaturated-zone test holes dry drilled using the vacuum/reverse-air-circulation method. This test hole was drilled in and near the southwestern part of the Nevada Test Site, Nye County, Nevada, in a program conducted in cooperation with the US Department of Energy.

      Earlier this week, Linc Energy released two reports estimating the amount of oil in the Arckaringa Basin near Coober Pedy in South Australia. Independent reports from Gustavson Associates and Author: Vlado Vivoda. Preliminary results on chalk (CK-6), oil shale (OS-3), and sandstone (SS) samples (Fig. 5) indicate that uranium sorption is substantial but is lowe r than for organic phospherite (HOP-5). In.

The history of the oil shale industry in the United States goes back to the s; it dates back farther as a major enterprise than the petroleum industry. But although the United States contains the world's largest known resource of oil shale, the US has not been a significant producer of shale oil since There were three major past attempts to establish an American oil shale.

fall tuffs indicate volcanism in northeastern Nevada during deposition of the lower part of the organic-rich interval. Greater volcanism, indicated by thick, reworked tuffaceous intervals interspersed with organic-rich mudrocks, appears to have occurred just prior to deposition of the richest oil shale in the Elko Formation.

Oil shale - Oil shale - Environmental issues: The production of oil from shales has a potentially serious impact on the environment.

Four specific areas of concern dominate discussion regarding development of the resource: greenhouse gas output, water consumption and pollution, surface disturbance, and socioeconomic effects. Because oil and gas are produced by heating oil.
