|Energy return on invested for tar sands and oil shale. Experience of USA and Canada|
|The article discusses the energy return on energy invested for tar sands and oil shale. A brief overview of methods of development of these sources of hydrocarbons and quantitative parameters of developmental projects are shown. A preliminary calculations of energy return on invested for production of hydrocarbons from tar sands and oil shale, and energy return on invested for production of light oil from the oil produced using such method are carried out.
Keywords: unconventional sources of hydrocarbons, tar sands, oil shale, energy return on invested.
