Estonia shale oil industry

Extracting value from oil shale reserves through co-generation of shale oil and electricity.

The greatest potential for growth in value lies in using as much oil shale as possible for oil production. We have developed Enefit technology, a unique technology for producing shale oil from oil shale, which uses all mined oil shale including the fine particles.

We can double the energy extracted from oil shale by directing semicoke and oil shale gas, the by-products from pyrolysis to energy production.
