Title: Geochemistry of Israeli oil shales: a review

Abstract

The oil shales of Israel are widely distributed throughout the country and have current reserves of about 3500 million tons located in the following deposits: Zin, Oron, Ef'e, Hartuv, and Nabi-Musa. The geochemistry and chemical analysis of these shales are discussed, along with the calorific value, oil yield, and trace elements. The main components influencing the quality of the oil shales are organic matter, carbonate, clay minerals, and apatite. Compositional variations within the organic matter are responsible for changes in the relative calorific value and retorted oil yield while fluidized bed combustion is affected by the inorganic components.
