Oil production from shales is more expensive both in financial terms and in terms of its impact on the environment than from traditional reservoirs. The large reserves of shale oil and the limited reserves of traditional oils cause the increased interest of oil companies in the development of shale deposits. For the release of hydrocarbon fluids from shale rocks, thermal effects are carried out. In-situ modified approaches increase the oil recovery factor of shale rock by fracturing, with subsequent combustion of part of the shale. Thus, the heat transfer and fluid flows in these reservoirs are improved.
