Jordan Energy and Mining Limited (JEML) specialises in mining and processing oil shale, the earth's largest source of untapped liquid hydrocarbons, a fuel lifeline which can extend the world's oil supply.

We consume six barrels of oil for each new barrel discovered and world demand for oil is still growing.  Yet output from the world's oil fields is declining naturally by 9% per year.  With oil production expected to peak within the lifetimes of most people living today, the search for a viable, long-term alternative to oil has become more urgent.

Jordan Energy and Mining employs leading edge technology and specialist expertise to exploit oil shale reserves, initially in Jordan.  Our oil shale mining projects in Al Lajjun will help the Kingdom meet its daily petroleum consumption of around 100,000 barrels per day.
