Enefit offers a variety of services from geological and mining studies, multi-level studies and test work, to detailed engineering and project execution. We have a full range of resources supporting technological development and adjustment to different oil shale feeds. Enefit is prepared to meet the project needs of individual clients. We feature an in-house R&D laboratory, an engineering team, and pilot testing facilities, which form the basis for our advisory services and operational assistance.
In addition to operating the world's largest oil shale operation in Estonia, Enefit has successfully exported its know-how to other countries.
Enefit's Utah project is located within one of the richest areas of the region's oil shale formation.
Enefit, together with Malaysian and Chinese partners, has developed a 554 MW oil shale fired power plant and 10 million-ton open cast mine in Jordan, the most advanced oil shale development project outside of Estonia.
The project will be designed to minimize water use and return spent shale back to where it was mined, reducing land disturbance and allowing for reclamation back to the natural topography. Enefit can meet 1/3 of Utah's liquid fuel demand while providing long term stable jobs for local families to thrive.
Properties owned or controlled by Enefit contain an estimated 2.6 billion barrels of recoverable oil that can be safely unlocked with conventional mining, mineral processing and refining methods. Enefit is uniquely experienced in employing the best available technologies for clean, safe, and reliable production.
Enefit was awarded the first surface mining oil shale concession by the Jordanian Government with exclusive rights to the oil shale in the area for 40 years, with the option of extending it for another 10 years.
The power plant will significantly reduce the Kingdom's expenditure on energy imports, and reduce the Kingdom's annual expenditure on energy imports.
