Abstract
Oil shales, representing the most important deposits of solid hydrocarbon (kerogen or pyrobitumen), are defined, and their classification on the basis of components and origin is described. Geological conditions of oil shale formation and its thickness in various economic deposits of the world are summarized. Prospecting guides in searching for oil shales are given. A brief mention of other solid hydrocarbons (mineral tar, asphalts, asphaltites, metamorphic hydrocarbons) is made.
