Enefit - World´s Leading Oil Shale Energy Company

Expanding liquid fuels production is the cornerstone of Enefit strategy. We are rapidly developing our operations upon a stable annual production of approximately 1.3 million barrels of shale oil.


Enefit has developed a technology that processes oil shale into oil and gas and generates electricity as a by-product.


The first new generation Enefit280 plant in Estonia to use an improved version of our industrially proven technology is now complete. Shale oil production in Jordan and Utah, USA will be launched in 2020s.


Here at Enefit, we are highly dedicated to lessening the environmental impact of our production processes. We also believe in mutually beneficial cooperation with the local community. Though the majority of our environmental restoration and community development projects are focused in Estonia, we will gradually expand our responsibility activities to other countries with the growth of our international presence.
