The first substantial shale-oil industry was begun in the Lothians of Scotland by John (Paraffin) Young and others in It was initially based on Carboniferous cannel coals (that burned like a candle) and later on oil shales in the same Carboniferous by: 1.

Some oil-shales occur in Jurassic rocks on England’s southern coast, but the principal workings were in Scotland, where they occur in the Strathclyde Group of strata, which formed in the Visean epoch ( Mya) of the Carboniferous period. Most are in West Lothian and adjoining parts of South Lanarkshire.

The dominant oil shale facies has a mean TOC of –%, Type II kerogen, and contains 50% matrix amorphinite and only 6% telalginite. About 7% of the oil shales are torbanites (stellarite) which have a mean TOC of 12%, a mean HI of (≤), a mean telalginite content of 17% (≤97%), and oil yields up to l/ by: Kerogen is the solid, high molecular-weight fraction of sedimentary organic matter (OM) that is insoluble in organic solvents (e.g., chloroform) as opposed to the soluble fraction called bitumen.

Pt.I the Geology of the Oil-Shale Fields. The first substantial shale-oil industry was begun in the Lothians of Scotland by John (Paraffin) Young and others in It was initially based on Carboniferous cannel coals (that burned like a candle) and later on oil shales in the same Carboniferous succession.

By about shale-oil works were operating in Scotland, and in a. This allowed Broxburn to play a significant role in West Lothian's remarkable oil boom of the late s, based on mineral oil extracted from shale and coal. The process produced crude oil, paraffin oil, paraffin wax, naptha, gas, coke, and ammonia: and it also produced a bright pink spent shale which was simply piled up in huge "bings", some.

This book tells the story of its journey from erupting volcanoes, through rivers, seas and ice-caps, to the peaceful parks, restored quarries and level.

A Development Control policy to control the extraction of oil shale bings in West Lothian Introduction Oil shale bings are mineral waste tips and have, therefore, been considered to be derelict land. However, the regular contours and imposing height of the few intact shale bings mean they can be viewed as local landmarks to be preserved (e.g.ProtectOurCoastLine - Your Search Result For Richard J Grant Caldwell: Arnold M.

G. Carruthers, Based on the Work of H. M. Cadell .The history of the oil shale industry started in ancient times. The modern industrial use of oil shale for oil extraction dates to the midth century and started growing just before World War I because of the mass production of automobiles and trucks and the supposed shortage of gasoline for transportation needs.

Between the World Wars oil shale projects were begun in several .
