VIRU KEEMIA GRUPP AS
Viru Keemia Grupp is a private Estonian large-scale industrial enterprise. We focus on oil shale mining, shale oil, combined heat and power production and production and marketing of fine chemical products. Our central values are openness, dedication to our work, and continuous development. We believe that every step and every action we take must create value for everyone – our employees, partners, clients, and the local community alike. Our mission is the valorisation of oil shale – the brown gold of Estonia.
Viru Keemia Grupp, a private capital based enterprise located in Kohtla-Järve, is the largest shale oil producer in Estonia, proudly continuing the Estonian tradition of adding value to oil shale that dates back to 1924. The enterprise is based on private capital since 1997 as a result of the privatisation of AS Kiviter.
In the world, VKG is second in terms of its processing volumes after china's Fushun oil shale processing complex and in front of Brazil's Petrobras oil shale processing plant.
