Abstract
In this study, 1-D combustion tube experiments were performed with samples from the Turkish Seyitömer, Himmetoğlu and Hatıldağ oil shale deposits. The results demonstrate that these oil shales are suitable for oil production by in-situ combustion techniques. The calculated production values are 4.46 L/ton for Seyitömer oil shale, 32.22 L/ton for Himmetoğlu oil shale, and 18.27 L/ton for Hatıldağ oil shale.
