Though shale may have had a rougher year in 2020 due to the Covid19 pandemic, oil prices appear ready to push higher in 2021 as demand recovers.

The $139.4 million project will be developed by an oil & gas operator who has a full suite of in-house capabilities. The development of the targeted wells will include well drilling and the operator’s proprietary ability to process natural gas on-site and create refined components, including methane, ethane, propane, liquid natural gas, and other products for a value uplift.

Shale is a substitute for conventional crude oil and is increasingly used, owing to its low cost of extraction. Additionally, oil shale serves in the production of specialty carbon fibers, carbon black, adsorbent carbons, resins, phenols, tanning agents, road bitumen, and soil-additives. The growing use of oil shale across various industries has been driving the oil shale market.

Though shale may have had a rougher year in 2020 due to the Covid19 pandemic, oil prices appear ready to push higher in 2021 as demand recovers, according to Forbes.
