His Majesty Speeches:

  • On the other level, it is so essential for the Government to speed up the search for other sources of energy- other than importing oil, and in front of that is to complete the implementation of the oil shale project and any other sources of energy".
  • Quoted from the Royal letter of His Majesty King Abdullah the Second directed to the Prime Minister in April 13th, 2006.
  • The government's economic policy should focus on achieving food and water security and on responding to the Kingdom's need for energy resources through long-term planning and pursuing mega projects that are capable of responding to our growing needs. In order to achieve the best possible results, and in light of the fact that these issues are interconnected, the government must draft the institutional frameworks that would ensure the highest level of coordination in the management of and investment in these sectors, especially alternative energy projects, gas and shale oil exploration, any mineral resources, nuclear energy, the Disi Water Conveyance Project and the Red-Dead Water Conveyance Project.”
