Kinetic parameters describing the evolution of CnHm, CH4, CO and H2 in the course of shale thermal decomposition were calculated by the Allakhverdov-Nirsha method allowing for sum of square difference behaviour in the kinetic parameters. The mean kinetic parameters were determined for each gas according to the parameters which were determined for the different seams of commercial deposits. The calculated results agreed well with the experiments.
