Who We Are

We are an independent oil shale technology company committed to licensing the second generation Paraho II™ technology.  STIS was formed in 2006 to promote development of the oil shale industry by refining and enhancing the Paraho II™ technology.  This robust process was originally developed over 45 years ago and continues to be demonstrated today at STIS’ pilot plant facility in Rifle, Colorado. Paraho II™ is poised for use in a commercial scale project, and STIS can provide the support required for such a project, including testing, research, and commercial design and scale-up.
