Seeking ways to diminish Egypt’s dependency on foreign oil imports, wehad to look for the obvious resources to exploit. Oil shale is one of Egypt’sresources that are left abandoned and not used. This project is aiming atintroducing both experimental analysis for oil shale in Egypt and the bestproduction technique for it. This study is about experimentally analyzingdifferent samples of potential oil shale fields in Egypt. Samples that areanalyzed in this project are from two locations in Egypt: Quseir-Safaga and Abu-Tartur Western Desert, and they are compared toone of the best oil shale fields in the world, which is from Green RiverFormation Colorado. The experiments were done using AUC lab retort toexperimentally determine the critical temperature that will lead to the maximumproduction using sudden and gradual change in temperatures, which turned out tobe sudden change at 500°C. Thereafter, the degree of API gravity was calculated for each run. Thenthe oil samples were determined for impurities and liquid chromatographyresults in the Egyptian Petroleum Research Institute. Part two of the studyplan has been included to determine the ultimate ways of producing efficiently,ecologically and economically.
