Oil shale is a sedimentary rock containing large amounts of fossil organic matter, known as kerogen. It is used to obtain liquid shale oil, which is further employed in the production of fuel oil, including gasoline, diesel, natural gas, and liquid petroleum gas (LPG), and other hydrocarbons using advanced processing methods. Its by-products can also be utilized to produce commercial products, such as ammonia, sulfur, alumina, soda ash, and nahcolite. At present, spent oil shale finds extensive application in cement production around the world.
Inflating crude oil prices and the cost benefits of using oil shale over conventional energy resources act as major factors shifting consumer preferences towards oil shale. The market is also influenced by boosting sales of vehicles on account of increasing income levels and rapid urbanization. Moreover, the growing electricity consumption and the construction of new power plants are catalyzing the demand for shale oil worldwide, which, in turn, is strengthening the market growth. Shale oil can be fired in a furnace as a boiler fuel to produce steam for power generation. Furthermore, a significant increase in construction activities across the globe is escalating the demand for cement and other products, which, in turn, is driving the market. Apart from this, advancements in drilling techniques and the advent of innovative technologies of mining and retorting are assisting in reducing the overall operating costs. This, in confluence with the development of new in situ methods for shale oil extraction and the rising use of geospatial infrastructure for managing large volumes of oil shale data, is anticipated to impel the growth of the overall market.
