Abstract
Among the latent domestic energy resources needed to meet further energy demands are gaseous and liquid fuels from oil shale, coal, and tar sands. Research and development on the production of fluids from oil shale and coal has reached demonstration-plant scale. Despite commercial-scale production of oil from the Athabasca tar sands in Canada, there is at present only a minimal effort in the United States. Available information indicates that there may be some commercial production from all three sources within the next decade.
