Process Development Discussions
DRAGON SHALE LLC (Dragon Shale) has been advised by ETTANET LLC (Ettanet) that BLUE ENSIGN TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED (BLE) is in discussion with a major Japanese engineering corporation whereby BLE believe an engagement could present a unique and pertinent opportunity for progressing the development of their new oil shale conversion technology.
Ettanet has followed closely their technology development and envisions it to become a dominant process technology for application in future oil shale projects implemented by Dragon Shale. ETTANET encourages DRAGON SHALE LLC (Dragon Shale) to support further developing the benefits BLE has discussed which could include access to excellent, larger-scale autoclave and related test equipment and availability of pilot plants for integrated continuous testing of Dragon Shale feedstock, should Dragon Shale and BLE enter into suitable agreements for such testing.
Such development program with BLE might be executed at lower cost than current alternative development programs being considered by Dragon Shale, but are subject to more detailed discussions between Dragon Shale and BLE. Dragon Shale advisors are evaluating the Ettanet recommendations and any basis for discussing process development collaboration with BLE.
