Estimates of technically recoverable shale gas resources are certain to change over time as new wells go into production and new technologies are developed. ment for the purpose of "testing" various shale oil technologies. The bids Nevertheless, many barriers confront the development of a shale oil industry. 8 Mar 2020 Alexander Novak told his Saudi Arabian counterpart Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman that Russia was unwilling to cut oil production further.

In situ technologies heat oil shale underground by injecting hot fluids into the rock formation, or by using linear or planar heating sources followed by thermal conduction and convection to distribute heat through the target area. Shale oil is then recovered through vertical wells drilled into the formation.

The Illinois Institute of Technology developed the concept of oil shale volumetric heating using radio waves (radio frequency processing) during the late 1970s.

Shale oil – February 2013 1 Executive summary • Shale oil (light tight oil) is rapidly emerging as a significant and relatively low cost new unconventional resource in the US. There is potential for shale oil production to spread globally over the next couple of decades. If it does, it would revolutionise global energy Oil firms currently spend about $5.9 million to drill a new shale well, according to consultancy Rystad Energy. Shell expects to chop that cost to less than $4 million apiece by the end of the decade.

Despite rising production, most US shale producers are showing negative free cash flow. To improve capital efficiency in unconventional oil and gas, they need to optimize development strategies for economic value, not volume. Greenvale Energy Ltd., Sydney, has appointed consulting firm SRK Consulting (Australasia) Pty. Ltd. to progress development of the Alpha oil shale project in central Queensland inland from Multiple wells, branching out within several horizontal layers of oil shale can generate tremendous production volumes with corresponding high economic returns. Operators in the Permian Basin have led the way in cube development and Oklahoma producers are joining in. Devon has a 24-well cube development operation in Oklahoma. With production on a consistent rise, the region has proved to be prolific as shale and tight oil and gas development with horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing across the DJ basin production has doubled over the last decade. For many decades, the oil shale resources of the Western United States have. been considered possible contributors to the Nation’s liquid fuel supply. This vol-. ume reviews several paths to development of these resources and the likely conse-. quences of following these paths. Russia has made yet another technological breakthrough thanks to the Western sanctions: it has developed its own technologies for the exploration and production of hard to extract shale oil. This advance is even more significant given that the sanctions have stopped Russian oil companies from using western equipment.
