The Greater Green River Basin contains some of the world’s largest oil shale deposits mainly held in the Green River Formation. The Greater Green River Basin covers parts of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. This basin is suspected to contain a significant amount of oil, anywhere from 1.5 to 1.8 trillion barrels held solely in the Green River Formation. The Greater Green River Basin is made of four depositional basins that include the Piceance, Unita, Washakie, and Green River Basins. The Green River Basin contains an estimated 250 billion barrels, while the Piceance Basin is ... ... middle of paper ... ...echnical Guide.
Oil itself is conventional or unconventional depending on the quality of the oil. Conventional oil is light and flows underground from reservoirs easily. Unconventional oil is heavy and thick, making it less desirable for use (Hirsch et. al 2005). From smaller oil spills to the Deepwater Horizon spill, and others like it, oil spills are one of the most detrimental effects that oil has on the environment.

The three main producible types can be seen in many different unconventional resources in which this report discusses some of the most important examples for each type along with how producible each formation/resource is. Kerogen is an insoluble macromolecular organic matter that forms from various environments, climates, and biota, giving information on the geologic pasts of these kerogen sources. It is formed by diagenetic processes in the first few hundred meters of burial (Dow, 1976). Kerogen, when mature, forms petroleum and natural gas. To become mature, the kerogen converts by increases in temperature and pressure.

• Generation of its own utilities (Register, 2010). Due to high percentage of CO2, the feed is processed in CO2 Removal Plant prior undergone further processing in Liquid Recovery Plant in order to minimise corrosion. There are currently five active CO2 absorbers in the plant. Raw gas enters the absorber near the bottom of the vessel via a gas distributor. As the gas flows up the absorber, it contacts a counter-current flow of hot, lean potassium carbonate solution which will absorb CO2 from the raw gas (Santos, 2008).

Natural gas production is occurring in British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec, and New Brunswick. Natural gas could also become large industry in Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland & Labrador, Yukon and the Northwest Territories. Oil production is currently taking place in the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland & Labrador (CAPP, 2013). Coal is one of the world’s most abundant fossil fuels. Coal was formed during the Carboniferous Period when dead plant material was buried and subjected to high pressure and heat.
