Authors: N.M. Baykov (Institute of World Economy and International Relations of RAS, RF, Moscow), E.N. Baykova (Surgutneftegas OJSC, RF, Surgut)

Key words: shale oil, recoverable reserves, development, traditional fuels.

The prospects of the shale oil fields development are given. Its recoverable reserves in the world are assessed. An experience of the development of two oil shale fields in the United States based on foreign media materials is presented, the problems associated with the environment are considered.
