Background information:
As the price of oil continues to increase and global oil production nears its peak, pursuing unconventional oil supplies, such as oil shale, heavy oil and oil sands becomes increasingly attractive. Of particular significance is that these unconventional resources exist in North America and provide the opportunity to develop cutting-edge technologies for characterization, production, processing and environmental management—allowing the United States to lead in global solutions. Battelle can deliver these breakthroughs.
