Lithia, Oct. 23, 2018 - via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- American International Ventures Inc., ("AIVN") has entered into a joint venture agreement with PT Musi Bumi Energi an Indonesia Corportion (“MBE”). MBE has an 8,855 hectare (21,881 acre) coal concession, located at Musi Banyuasin, South Sumatera, Indonesia. Coal reserves of approximately one hundred million (100,000,000) metric tons (Pre-Jorc estimate) of low rank subbituminous coal reserves located on said concession.
Robert G. Polce, CEO of AIVN stated: "The intent of this joint venture is to develop Coal to Liquids (CTL) plants using coal reserves located on the joint venture coal concessions. The first phase of this development will consist of one coal to liquid plant that consumes two thousand (2,000) tons of coal per day producing eight thousand (8,000) barrels of Synthetic Crude Oil (SCO) per day. Then we will develop what is referred to as a “SET” which ultimately includes four coal to liquid plants and one refinery to process the synthetic crude oil produced into the desired products. Each of the four plants will process two thousand tons of coal per day, with a total of eight thousand tons coal input per day. Total synthetic crude oil production will be thirty-two thousand (32,000) barrels per day, with plant production life of 30 years”. The total project development cost will be 1.2 Billion (1,200,000,000) USD, with an average cost of Three Hundred Million (300,000,000) USD per Coal to Liquids (CTL) Plant.

By coupling US Patented Clean Coal Technology with Market Requirements in the PAC Rim, this international business symbiosis was made possible (in part) by the new tax regulations instituted by the current administration.
