Welcome to the Jordan International Oil Shale Symposium 2014

Oil Shale is growing as a global phenomenon around the world, as more companies and governments increase their investment in oil shale exploration. JIOSS 2014 will provide in-depth insights into the oil shale reserves and the latest developments in exploration and commercial timeframes in the Kingdom of Jordan.

Jordan's vast oil shale reserves have prompted large interest amongst the industry, considered as holding the world's fourth largest reserves after the United States, China and Russia, with an estimated 100 billion barrels of shale oil. The JIOSS is the only Symposium to gather key investors, senior government representatives, policy makers, IOCs, leading engineers and researchers to discuss the various stages of oil shale production in Jordan and the industry's top challenges, projects timeframe's and commercialization plans in the following years.

(JOSCO), a 100% Royal Dutch Shell company has been granted a 22,270 km2 concession in Jordan, in order to assess the potential of Upper Cretaceous/Paleogene Oil Shale strata for production via Shell’s proprietary In-situ Conversion process (ICP). Shell’s objective is to delineate one or more ‘sweet spots’ as well as to evaluate each ‘sweet spot’ for containment risk, geomechanical risk and quantify the energy required to convert and produce oil from the kerogen-bearing shale in a commercial project. Shareen Yawanarajah, Jordan Front End Development Manager, JOSCO, Jordan Commercialization of an oil shale deposit Surface processing of oil shale developments include mining, thermal processing, upgrading and waste management. The complexity of such projects can be overwhelming for most investors. A new approach is required to ensure that progress is made and returns available as soon as possible with the lowest risk profile. This sessions sets out an approach to establishing an oil shale industry simply and relatively quickly. The key benefits for the audience include 1. Give a guideline for a development strategy in a new deposit 2. Make them aware of some of the pitfalls 3. Provide an estimate of cost and duration of such an exercise. Jim Schmidt, Director, PROCOM Consultants Pty Ltd, Australia 14:20 Developing Jordan's first oil shale fired power plant: Project status overview Enefit is developing in partnership with YTL International Berhad and Near East Investments Ltd. The project is a 540 MW green field oil shale fired power project in Attarat Um Ghudran. Which will be the first of its kind in Jordan and relieve the Kingdom´s energy dependence. The presentation will give an overview of the current status of the oil shale fired power project and summarize the key findings and outcomes (technical, economical) of the various activities that are currently being performed Mohamed Yacine Layachi, Power Project Manager, Enefit, Estonia Selective oil shale mining The most common method for rock breaking is drilling and blasting. However various alternative mechanical excavation methods are available, especially when mining sedimentary rock, like oil shale. Surface miners should be considered as a good alternative for traditional drilling and blasting technology for oil shale mining in many geological conditions. It could be cost-effective or even an absolute alternative to drilling and blasting. Martin Kaljuste, Mining Engineer, Steiger Engineering LLC, Estonia 14:40 Daniel Melo, Professional Engineer, Industrial Processes, ThyssenKrupp Resource Technologies (UMATAC), Canada Recovery of shale oil condensate using flow through apparatus This session will review how four oil shales from different locations and origins were reacted in a flow through system at 4250C with N2 or H2 as sweep gases at 1 atmosphere pressure for 1 h or 5 h and the condensate collected.
