Since the early 1980s, oil shale has not been on the U.S. energy policy agenda, and very little attention has been directed at technology or energy market developments that might change the commercial prospects for oil shale.

In this report, the authors describe the oil shale resources (estimated at more than triple the proven oil reserves of Saudi Arabia); the suitability, cost, and performance of technologies for developing these resources; and the key energy, environmental, land-use, and socioeconomic policy issues that need to be addressed by government decisionmakers. The authors conclude by outlining both the challenges and opportunities for early action with regard to those policy issues.
