Oil shale is a rich fine-grained sedimentary rock formed from heating rich sediments and a significant amount of insoluble organic substance called kerogen. Oil shale can also be burned directly into the furnaces as a low-grade fuel for power generation and district heating or used as a raw material in chemical and construction-materials processing. The largest deposit of oil shale in the world is found in the Green River basin of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. It contains the equivalent of about 1.5 trillion barrels of shale oil. The main advantage of oil shale is that shale oil extraction methods are more flexible than traditional oil well drilling. The initial drilling only accounts for 40 percent of the total cost. Every barrel of oil produced from shale leaves behind about 1.2 to 1.5 tons of rock. Rising demand for energy and depletion of non-renewable energy are the factors driving the growth of the oil shale market. In addition, development in the drilling techniques is increasing the number of recoverable oil reserves, which in turn is fuelling the growth of the market. However, the high production cost of oil shale, low carbon content and environmental issues such as global warming and greenhouse gases are some of the factors restraining the growth of the oil shale market during the forecast period. Furthermore, research and development within the shale to reduce industrial pollution is anticipated to open up several growth opportunities for the key players in the oil shale market over the years to come.
