Inside information: Kemira announces a strategic review of its Oil & Gas business
In line with its strategic focus, Kemira’s Board of Directors has decided to initiate an evaluation of strategic options for Kemira’s Oil & Gas business, including a potential sale of the business.

“In our Capital Markets Day 2022, we expressed our interest to grow in water-related applications. In recent years we have invested in the growth of our Oil & Gas business, and we have seen strong revenue growth in the business since 2021. Now is a good time to evaluate the optimal portfolio composition for Kemira in the long term and the strategic alternatives for the Oil & Gas business,” says Kemira’s President and CEO, Jari Rosendal.

Kemira’s Oil & Gas business focuses on shale oil & gas, oil sands tailings treatment, and cEOR (Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery). In 2022, the revenue of the Oil & Gas business was EUR 377 million, representing approximately 11 % of Kemira’s total revenue and 25% of the Industry & Water segment’s revenue.

Kemira will provide updates on the progress of the strategic review in due course.
