Abstract
In the last two decades, U.S. petroleum demand has increased at a rate greater than that of domestic production. A domestic energy source that is under serious consideration to augment present supply is oil shale. The Green River Formation in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming represents a potential resource containing about 2 trillion barrels of oil in shale that averages 15 gallons per ton or more than 400 billion barrels in 30-gallon-per-ton shale. This report considers the technological and environmental aspects of developing this resource for use by the people of the United States.
