Power From the Desert tells the story of Chinese builders building the Attarat power station for Jordan, a country rich in oil shale.

The oil shale power station built by China and Jordan in the city of Arabia is an important measure to free Jordan from energy dependence and an early harvest of the Belt and Road Initiative in Jordan.
