Hydrogenating Shale Oil At Low Space Velocity.
NTIS: PB 220 584 :9 pages
Crude shale oil prepared by gas-combustion retorting of Colorado oil shale was hydrogenated over a cobalt molybdate catalyst at an operating pressure of 1,000 psig, temperatures of 781 deg f and 761 deg f, and liquid hourly space velocities of 0.10 and 0.05 Vo/vc/hr, respectively. The yields of total liquid products and the amounts of nitrogen and sulfur removed were comparable with those obtained at an operating pressure of 3,000 psig and a liquid hourly space velocity of 1.0 Vo/vc/hr. Approximately 1.5 Times as much gasoline was produced at the lower pressure and space velocities. Work done in cooperation with the University of Wyoming.
