Oil Shale | World Reserves

The largest identified oil shale deposits, by far, are located in the United States. These deposits dwarf all the others, and are estimated to contain more than two trillion barrels of oil, of which 560 billion barrels of this reserve are considered recoverable “under present and expected local economic conditions with existing available technology” (in 2001).
