As this shale oils is not similiar to the oil which is currently available, As it is present in the solid state it requires different technology to extract it. The technology is available now but when extracting the oil from shale oil the rock is crushed in to powder and heated in an extreme high temperature and then it has to cooled down by pouring lots of water over it. Shale is present all over the world. The Main countries which are having the reserves of shale oil are America, Australia, India, Thailand and many others.
