How is shale oil made?

    Oil shale is actually a kind of rock that contains a large amount of kerogen, from which liquid can be drawn, liquid which can serve as a kind of fuel. Because kerogen is a solid, liquid must be drawn from it in order to produce oil. How do you do this? Extreme heat is the simple, but true answer.

    il shale was formed millions of years ago by deposition of silt and organic debris on lake beds and sea bottoms. Over long periods of time, heat and pressure transformed the materials into oil shale in a process similar to the process that forms oil; however, the heat and pressure were not as great. Oil shale generally contains enough oil that it will burn without any additional processing, and it is known as “the rock that burns”.
