Abstract : 270 BARRELS OF SPECIFICATION JP-4 jet fuel were produced by hydrorefining 890 barrels of raw Geokinetics shale oil under severe operating conditions in a continuous process development unit. On a once thru basis the yield of JP-4 off the hydrotreater was about 35 volume % of the feed. Preliminary estimates of plant investments and economics indicate that for the combination severe hydrorefining and hydrocracking, an 85 volume % yield can be attained based on total refinery energy input. Capital investments and manufacturing costs do not appear to be excessive for a shale oil refinery. (Author)
