Title: Occidental vertical modified in situ process for the recovery of oil from oil shale: Phase I. Quarterly progress report, November 1, 1978-January 31, 1979

Abstract

The Retort 6 operating conditions were steady for most of the quarter and oil production increased to an average three hundred barrels per day. Severe weather conditions caused numerous problems with steam and air injection to the retort. The construction activities centered on completion of the oil/water separation tank and installation of the off-gas condenser pilot plant. The oil and gas analyses for the retort operation since start-up are included. The process water analyses are part of the hydrology section of Appendix B, Environmental Data Analyses. At the C-b Tract, the shaft sinking operation was begun at the Ventilation/Escape Shaft on January 15, 1979. The construction activities continued in preparation for shaft sinking at the Production and Service Shafts. Appendices include: thermocouple data, environmental data analyses, development guide for Rifle, Colorado, and shale oil analyses report.
