Estonia is a strategic storage hub for Puma Energy’s European operations. We operate two storage and blending terminals in the country which are strategically located ports of Paldiski and Sillamae, and we are handling increasing volumes of light oils, petrochemicals, LPG, gasoline and aviation fuel there. We have invested consistently over time to expand capacity and improve performance at our storage and blending terminals, and the facility to manufacture aviation fuels at Paldiski has helped us secure vital competitive advantage in Estonia.
Both our terminals are connected to fast, efficient logistic networks, primarily serving Russian exports. Our facility at Paldiski holds Estonia’s strategic fuel stocks, while its shale oil exports are handled at Sillamae.
Our north European facilities are strategically located at the meeting point between European and Russian trading lines, and Puma Energy’s commercial activities are managed through the European regional business in Tallinn.

The Estonian landscape is surprisingly diverse - with deserted beaches, deep forests, picturesque lakes and rivers and swamplands, all rich in flora and fauna. Western Estonia is a bird-watchers paradise. In summer the climate is ideal for hiking, fishing and water sports, while many tourists visit the country’s meteoric craters and famous islands. In winter, sledding, skating and skiing are popular activities.
The capital city, Tallinn comprises an old medieval centre which is also in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, but also offers a choice of modern architectural, cultural and recreational highlights. Parnu, the summer capital is a famous beach resort, while Tartu, the gateway to South Estonia is a buzzing university town, with popular museums and galleries.
