So will the plant be generating power or oil?

In the article, the person says it's more efficient to generate power from shale than from gas. The at the end, it says the goal is to produce 40k barrels of oil per day. Reply to the comment answer

Are they not both bi-products? I assume the oil referred to isn't used in refining but in other industrial applications like plastics. Reply to the comment answer

So - it seems Enefit (eesti energia) owns/will own both a processing plant that converts shale into oil and a future power plant in Jordan that burns shale oil.

Enefit's processing plant should be able to produce 40,000 barrels oil from the oil shale per day for the power plant to consume.

Oil shale is a sedimentary rock which when processed (or heated) produces a bi-product of oil. This oil is burned for energy. It can be easily confused with oil crude - oil crude is available in liquid-phase form when extracted as a raw material.

Eesti Energia (if I'm not mistaken) processes oil shale into oil to burn as energy source here in Estonia Reply to the comment answer
