Energy from in situ processing of Antrim oil shale : quarterly technical progress report for January-March, 1978 by John P Humphrey( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Activities are reported in a program to test the technical feasibility for the in situ processing of the Antrim oil shale within the Mississippian-Devonian black shale sequence of the Michigan Basin to produce energy values. In situ combustion has been achieved in a well containing coal and charcoal, using a propane burner for ignition. Combustion was maintained at a high level for about a week. Greater quantities of hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and hydrogen were produced than during previous trials, and the heating value of the effluent gas was in the 40-60 Btu/scf range. After completion of air injection, the pressure on the injection well was reduced, permitting gases to flow back from the formation. During this period, the gas analysis showed an increased amount of hydrocarbons, possibly reflecting retorting of the oil shale. The initial chemical underreaming experiment was carried out in Dow/ERDA Well No. 201 using 28 percent hydrochloric acid. Logging of the well indicated that enlargement of the cavity had occurred, but the results are still under evaluation. Several wells were drilled in preparation for the explosive underreaming experiments. Shale characterization and resource inventory activities are continuing in four of the major universities of Michigan

The functions of government and the nature of laws by John P Humphrey( )

4 editions published between 1945 and 1946 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, when originally conceived, was part of a much larger plan. I began some time ago to analyse the functions of government in the international society. I wanted to demonstrate that the problem of government in that society is the same as it is within States. In the international as in the national sphere, the effective performance of any one of the functions of government (i.e. the legislative, the judicial, the executive and the administrative functions) depends upon the effective performance of each of the other functions. There can be no effective supra-national or world government, and hence no real international order, until all the processes or functions of government have been organized and institutionalized in the international sphere as they have been within States. Before analyzing the four functions of government in the international society, however, it seemed desirable to analyze them as they operated in more highly developed societies. This would throw strong light on the inadequacies of existing international organization and provide criteria for assessing the degree to which the world society has nevertheless been organized. It would also indicate the steps that must be taken if world government is to be achieved ..."--
