About The Jordan Oil Shale Company (JOSCO):
The Jordan Oil Shale Company (JOSCO) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Shell plc, registered in the Kingdom to search for and evaluate the commercial potential of deeper layers of Jordanian oil shale.
The long-term success of the project depends on the outcome of a number of defined consecutive project periods potentially leading to a commercial project in the future. Such a project would use an enhanced production technology called In-Situ Conversion Process (ICP).
The agreement signed in 2009 between the Government and JOSCO, is aligned with Jordan’s energy master plan that includes developing the country’s indigenous oil shale resources. JOSCO is well aware of the global energy challenge and through oil shale development, JOSCO is working to be an integral part in facing the growing demand of the world's energy needs.
