  • Patent number: 4342641
    Abstract: Improved method for maximizing jet fuel from shale oil involves hydrotreating the treated oil at a temperature of about F. in the presence of a catalyst having a relatively low metal content and then hydrotreating the oil at a temperature in excess of about F. in the presence of a catalyst having a relatively high metal content. A F. minus boiling point fraction fractionated from the foregoing process can meet JP-4 jet fuel specifications. Hydrocracking the F. plus boiling point fraction results in substantial additional quantities of jet fuel.
