Oil shale in Belarus
Oil shale in Belarus is a large, but undeveloped energy resource.Belarus is estimated to contain 8.8 billion tonnes of oil shale, with up to 3.6 billion tonnes of recoverable reserves, all concentrated within the Pripyat Shale Basin, occupying western Homiel, southern Minsk and eastern Brest voblasts. While the reserves have been known for decades, they remain unexplored due to the shale's high ash and sulphur content, low heat of combustion and high cost of extraction and processing. However, depletion of reserves of traditional petroleum and natural gas, as well as high degree of reliance on imported hydrocarbons (from Russia), have recently renewed interest in oil shale exploration in the country.

Oil prices subsided, and interest waned. With oil prices spiking and global demand showing no signs of abating, reexamining the economics of oil shale makes sense. In this report, th...

Belarus is interested in Estonia’s oil shale technology - BONJOUR L'ESTONIE
Juhan Tere Chief Consul of Belarus in Estonia Aljaksandr Ostrovski stated that Belarus is interested in having Estonian entrepreneurs participate in elaborating in major investment projects, including in exploiting the oil shale reserves in Belarus, writes the National Broadcasting/LETA. Consul Ostrovski who is ending his term of office in Estonia stated that in the past four years, the bilateral trade volume between Estonia and Belarus grew by more than three times, amounting to 400 million dollars last year. Belarus exported goods to Estonia for more than 330 million U.S. dollars and not including the CIS countries, Estonia ranks ninth among major trade partners of Belarus. “Estonian businessmen are still very interested in investing into the Republic of Belarus,” said Ostrovski, adding that these are mostly direct investments, not credits or bank loans.
