Abstract
This report is primarily involved with the economics of producing a high-quality, semirefined shale oil (syncrude) from oil shale. The study envisions two options for syncrude production, 50,000 and 100,000 barrels per calendar day, with an integrated system of underground mining, aboveground processing, and waste handling. The 50,000-barrel-per-day complex will require a capital investment of $279,450,100 (excluding land cost) and will provide a discounted cash flow (dcf) rate of 12 percent at a syncrude selling price of $5.66 Per barrel. The larger complex will require a capital investment of $522,375,400, but the syncrude selling price declines to $5.15 Per barrel to yield the 12 percent DCf.
