In a recent series of experiments, low grade shale oil, coal-derived and petroleum-based fuels were test-fired in a 35 MW capacity stationary gas turbine equipped with a large combustion chamber. Test results indicated that the machine can satisfactorily be operated with low hydrogen and high nitrogen containing partially refined low grade fuels without causing harmful effects to the turbine or the environment.
