San Leon Oil Shale

The San Leon Energy Tarfaya Oil Shale Pilot Plant was to be located in an area on the South-West Atlantic coast of Morocco. The proposed facility would allow the conversion by pyrolysis and the extraction of oil shale into recoverable hydrocarbons at surface from an oil shale pad at a depth of about 120m below the surface.

Enereco carried out the conceptual and detailed engineering for the surface facilities of the pilot plant for the in-situ exploitation of oil shale formation by means of hot gas circulations.
