About us

Jordan Energy and Mining (JEML) is a UK company that specialises in the mining and processing of oil shale, initially in Jordan through our Jordanian operating company Karak International Oil (KIO).  We are helping Jordan harness the potential of its oil shale deposits - the 4th largest in the world -to meet its domestic energy requirements and reduce dependence on oil imports.

We bring together specialist expertise, industry experience, state-of-the-art technology and international investment to benefit our shareholders, stakeholders, workers and the communities in which we operate.

We believe that only by treating those involved fairly and taking responsibilities towards the environment seriously can the company achieve sustainability.  Accordingly, both companies are committed to following best practice in areas of corporate governance, professional behaviour, labour relations, health and safety, community relations and protection of the environment.
