Abstract : A computer model of Sun Tech's upgrading concept for converting 100,000 BPSD of raw Occidental shale oil into aviation turbine fuels has been developed. Using economic guidelines provided by the U.S. Air Force, the total liquid product cost when maximizing JP-4 jet fuel was $1.22/gallon; $1.24/gallon when maximizing JP-8 jet fuel; and $1.19/gallon when producing JP-4 plus other fuels. Sensitivity analysis showed that the price of raw shale oil had the greatest impact on total liquid product costs. (Author)
