Oil shale – a Jordanian resource whose time has come

This portal has been developed by Enefit, the world's largest oil shale developer, to provide visitors with an introduction to oil shale in Jordan, the advanced technology available to extract and process mined oil shale, and how oil shale has the potential to transform Jordan from being dependent on foreign fuel imports to being a net exporter of energy.

Oil shale

Oil shale is a domestic resource that will provide the Kingdom with a long term supply of cheap, reliable and abundant energy that can cater to a significant percentage of Jordan's domestic energy requirements and provide a long term solution to the country's energy needs.
