Abstract The extraction of aliphatic hydrocarbons from the Niger Delta sedimentary organic matter by supercritical carbon dioxide at different extraction temperatures and times is described. The study was undertaken in order to determine optimal extraction conditions for the Niger Delta organic sedimentary rock. The results showed that the extraction temperatures (65, 95, 125, 155 and 185 °C) and kinetic rates have a significant effect on extraction yields. The optimum temperature (185 °C) for… CONTINUE READING
