Colony Shale Oil Project was an oil shale development project at the Piceance Basin near Parachute Creek, project consisted of an oil shale mine and pilot-scale shale oil plant, which used the TOSCO II retorting technology, developed by Tosco time the project was developed by a consortium of different companies until it was terminated by Exxon on 2 May a day.
