08.09.2018 00:27:51: Red Leaf forms Strategic Technical Alliance with Hatch for EcoShale process

Red Leaf Announces the Formation of a Strategic Technical Alliance with Hatch

SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 29, 2018- Red Leaf is pleased to announce the formation of
a Strategic Technical Alliance with Hatch, a global leader in engineering and
technology development. Under this Alliance, Hatch will be the exclusive
provider of certain engineering services for oil shale projects using Red Leaf's
proprietary EcoShale® oil shale technology. Hatch will provide engineering for
all process design packages, technical services and support through startup and
performance testing.

Hatch has worked with Red Leaf in developing its EcoShale® technology since
2008. Hatch has been involved in the overall technology development, including
analysis of the pilot plant operation and data ; design of experiments and ;
laboratory data development. Hatch has been the primary contractor for all
engineering designs associated with EcoShale® retorts, most notably the current,
reusable drum design. Engineering designs have included yield estimates, heat
and mass transfer models, retort thermo-mechanical designs and constructability

Red Leaf CEO, Adolph Lechtenberger, said, "Hatch is the recognized expert in
engineering services for the oil shale industry and has unmatched experience in
design and project development of oil shale projects. Hatch has been a part of
the development of Red Leaf's oil shale technology from the beginning. This
agreement with a world class engineering company will increase investor
confidence and is a significant milestone in the launch of our Seep Ridge

Sanjiv Save, Managing Director of the Oil and Gas business unit of Hatch, said,
"We're excited to be building on our long-standing relationship with Red Leaf
and to continue our work helping them to develop and implement the EcoShale®
technology. We see this as the next step in helping oil shale projects achieve
unprecedented outcomes with reduced costs and improved recovery of oil."

Red Leaf is developing a 10,000 barrel per day oil shale project at its Seep
Ridge site, approximately 60 miles south of Vernal, Utah. Construction for the
project is expected to begin in 2021 with first production in 2023. Red Leaf
recently awarded Hatch a contract to complete the next level of engineering on
this commercial project, a front-end loading or FEL2 design, which will be
completed in first half of 2019. Red Leaf also expects to begin pre-qualifying
potential EPC contractors and mine operators for the project later this year.

In parallel, one of Red Leaf's licensees, Questerre Energy Corp., has recently
announced that it is moving to the next phase of engineering with Hatch on its
large scale, integrated 50,000 barrel per day oil shale project in Jordan.
Questerre has an MOU for an eight-billion-barrel oil shale resource in Jordan,
and Red Leaf, as licensor of the EcoShale® process, is working with Questerre to
support its concession filing.
