Oil Shale Extraction

Oil shale must be mined using either underground- or surface-mining methods After excavation the oil shale must undergo retorting This is when the mined rock is exposed to the process of pyrolysis — applying extreme heat without the presence of oxygen to a substance and producing a chemical change

The breakeven price—the price of oil needed to profitably drill a new well—is of great interest because it provides information on how activity in the oil sector might adjust if oil prices move dramatically Its relevance has only grown over the past decade with the emergence of shale oil in the United States Shale has a shorter lead time between drilling and production relative to

Oil shale deposits in Jordan Oil shale is Jordan's most significant natural resource According to various estimates oil shale deposits underlie more than 60% of the Kingdom's territory totaling approximately 40 – 70 billion tonnes which would make Jordan the 6th richest country in the world in terms of oil shale

Over the past 10 years oil cost curves have moved from being very steep to having a long flat portion between $50 and $60 as the industry has added resources and as costs have declined (Chart 3) In other words shale production means there is a much larger amount of supply that can be called into action given a much smaller price increase than in the past

Global shale oil production could boost global GDP

Shale oil production has the potential to reach up to 12% of global oil production equivalent to almost 14 million barrels a day This extra supply could push global oil prices down by around 25%-40% in 2035 relative to an EIA baseline projection of $133 per barrel in that year (in real terms)

For the best viewing experience watch the above video in hi-definition (HD) and in expanded screen mode Transcript Okay by now you've heard the prior chapters on the Peak Cheap Oil concept and by now many of you are wondering how any of that could be still be true given all the positive recent stories about shale oil and shale gas many of which proclaimed "peak oil is dead"

Technological advances in hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling have led to the exploration and exploitation of shale oil and gas both nationally and internationally Extensive development of shale resources has occurred within the United States over the past decade yet full build out is not expected to occur for years Moreover countries across the globe have large shale resources

Oil shale any sedimentary rock containing various amounts of solid organic material that yields petroleum products along with a variety of solid by-products when subjected to pyrolysis—a treatment that consists of heating the rock to above 300 C (about 575 F) in the absence of oxygen The liquid oil extracted from oil shale once it is upgraded creates a type of synthetic crude oil

Top US shale producer sees oil price recovery continuing

Top US shale producer sees oil price recovery continuing Even when US and global benchmark prices return to $45 a barrel very few US producers would be able to afford to expand production because of high debt levels Scott Sheffield Pioneer's chief executive said in a call with investors Reuters May 08 2020 07 26 IST HOUSTON US shale producer Pioneer Natural Resources expects oil

Although shale-oil plays with oil stored in open-fractured shale have been pursued for more than 100 yr organic-rich and low-permeability shales and hybrid shale-oil systems are now being pursued based on knowledge and technologies gained from production of shale-gas resource systems and likely hold the largest untapped oil resource potential
