  NAI News Article: Eating Kerogen   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Kerogen is plentiful in the Kentucky shales because the ancient waters were very fertile, with lots of microorganisms like algae and planktonic bacteria at the surface, while the ocean bottom was stagnant, with limited dissolved oxygen.
The scientists know the bacteria are consuming the kerogen, because they designed their experiment so that kerogen was the only source of carbon available for the bacteria to eat.
Kerogen was thought to be resistant to bacterial consumption before this discovery.

 Oilfield Glossary: Term 'kerogen'
Typical organic constituents of kerogen are algae and woody plant material.
Kerogens have a high molecular weight relative to bitumen, or soluble organic matter.
Kerogens are described as Type I, consisting of mainly algal and amorphous (but presumably algal) kerogen and highly likely to generate oil; Type II, mixed terrestrial and marine source material that can generate waxy oil; and Type III, woody terrestrial source material that typically generates gas.
