The conventional wisdom is that the oil and solar industries go together like, well, oil and water. Think again. In Oman a solar firm called Glasspoint Energy is set to install a solar system to help create more oil. It works like this; oil fields in Oman have a large amount of “heavy” oil, which requires more effort to get it out of the ground, usually from steam generated by natural gas. Glasspoint’s system will use a solar greenhouse design to create steam that gets injected into the oil fields as part of the extraction process.
