Energy, 1992, vol. 17, issue 4, 313-319

Abstract: An oil-shale-fueled process for coproduction of oil and electricity is analyzed. The oil product constitutes 62% of fuel input energy, electricity 8% and losses (mostly steam turbine reject heat) 30% of input energy. A conceptual plant producing 8,000 barrels/day of shale oil and 65 MWe electricity from 11,000 ton/day mined oil shale is designed with respect to major process units. The economic analysis of the plant is based on published cost data for similar processes.
