Solar plant to be used for producing oil

You’d be surprised that this solar plant technology, which is supposed to be used for electricity, will instead be used for producing oil….
In a real case of strange bedfellows, one of the largest solar plants in the world is being built in Oman to boil water for use in oil production rather than to generate electricity. The plant, dubbed Miraah and created by Glasspoint for Petroleum Development Oman, will eventually produce the equivalent of 1 GW of power and will replace a less energy efficient natural gas method currently in use.
