What we do


Finesta Group, with its EPC partners, Banks & financial institutes take part in plenty of refining projects. Our reputation, financial capability, and relationships allow us to participate in plenty of important refinery projects in different ways as investing, executing, renovating, managing, or off-takers for the products. Due to adopting the most advanced technology, the highest environmental determinants, and following the modern management patterns in both execution and operation give Finesta Group space in the global map of the refineries.

In all our work, operating safely, reliably, and with a commitment to protect the environment is among our top priorities. With the support of our partner’s experiences we offer the knowhow, and help the refineries to increase value, lower costs, and improve the probability.

We aware that refineries rely on process technology solutions that are both innovative and commercially proven to overcome their challenges to meet the market demands.

The global vision of Oil & Gas industry that Finesta Group developed inspired us to take practical steps to invest in refineries in the Middle East – Iraq, where Iraq is considered one of the biggest countries in the Oil & Gas equation,  Huge Oil & Gas reserves, the significant location, the supportive investment legislations, beside the group’s abilities and vision push us forward to this step, which we believe that with the achieving such projects will positively impact Iraq and Finesta Group.

 Oil & Gas 

Oil & Gas sectors, is one of the main sector of Finesta Group.

​By making use of the world’s latest oil and gas technologies, we are endeavour to turn our discoveries into commercially viable solutions for the benefit of the Citizen of the countries where we invest in Oil & Gas sector. We are also actively investigating ways to benefit local communities by creating employment and financial benefits.

Finesta Gas & Oil is keen to grow its core business in the developing countries.

At the heart of all that we do is minimising the impact on local communities and having total respect for the environment in which we live.

We believe strongly that fully understanding our assets is fundamental to success. That’s why we engage with global companies such as ExxonMobil, Gazprom, British Petroleum, Royal Dutch Shell, Statoil, and Hellenic Petroleum Group, to provide us with the best advice to help turn our discoveries into economic reality.

​Finesta Group manages 1.45 billion EUR assets in Oil & Gas sector, in EMEA countries.

Pipeline Transport

Oil & Gas Pipeline Transport, is one of the main sector of Finesta Group.

Before the construction of the pipeline is started, it is necessary to provide geotechnical expertise to produce accurate high quality subsurface soil strata definition, soil classification and soil parameters, groundwater data by investigation, which will be used for the design and construction of the pipeline and earthworks. The Scope of investigation work mostly includes the provision of all management supervisory, administrative and technical personnel, transportation, equipment and all other items required providing geotechnical investigations. We are here to help you with these too.

Every pipeline needs (before construction starts) some engineering geological investigation, which provides us an insight into basic geological, enrigeering and hydrogeological features of the area of future route of the pipeline.

For example, Seismic refraction is a method to determine the P-wave velocity structure of the subsurface. This method is primary for determination of depth to bedrock and thickness of geologic strata, structure and identifying anomalous conditions.

Another modern method is Rayfract™ which allows us the non-intrusive imaging of the subsurface, for geotechnical engineering and exploration.

After the project is planned, investigation is done, then the construction can start. We’re here to help with all of these phases (from planing, construction to operations) and to ensure the functionality of the finished pipeline for a long time. For this, we have required technical personnel, equipment and all other items required. And because we are also modern company, we use modern method such as drones which are very helpful in finding gas leaks very fast.

 Oil & Gas Trading 

In commodity trading we have worldwide activities in the sourcing, transporting, storage and financing energy commodities. Our success is built upon knowledge of the market, reliability and independence.

We strive to be a reliable and competitive partner, working to contribute to our customers and suppliers expansion and development.

Our goal is to develop long term relations with our clients based on mutual trust, personalized service and sound and timely advice.

Over the years we have acquired extensive knowledge about the commodities we trade, from the field to the table.

Timing being of the essence, we focus on keeping close track of crop and weather changes and adjust our statistics accordingly.


DrilLife is an innovative international oil and gas industry company working in the fields of oil services, oil and gas equipment, and drilling equipment.
The company utilizes the very latest developments and achievements in the field, enabling the implementation of the complete cycle of operations from exploration to actual oil and gas extraction with high efficiency in the shortest time.

Today, DrilLife provides such services as geochemistry, seismic sensing for hydrocarbon exploration, drilling of oil and gas wells, cementing of wells, and packer service, as well as manufacturing drilling equipment and equipment for the oil and gas industry.

Our partners are the leading world companies. Enterprises of Altcom Group use in their work modern technologies, the newest equipment and ecologically clean materials, which correspond to the most contemporary demands and standards.

DMT Technology

We offer the Density Mapping Technology (DMT), a technology based on new Geophysical method that we named „DMT“ which was developed by the team of Prof. Vatrt who invented the W0 constant. We want to help companies reduce drilling risks and boost investment returns by using the „DMT“ technology together with classic geophysical exploration methods.

We believe that future exploration approaches will be based on new geophysical data. The DMT technology provides this type of data, which will allow better interpretation of the subsurface anomalies of the Earth.

The DMT will effectively increase the success rate of oil & gas exploration and it will reduce risks and save investments into exploration and drilling in hundreds of millions of USD.

DMT Method

DMT (Density Mapping Technology) is a new geophysical method that provides new information about the density variations in the Earth’s crust. These density variations can be relevant during initial prospecting and in combination with other techniques they provide useful detailed information about the explored area (e.g.) hydrocarbon reservoir structures). The DMT method calculates a new parameter which we named Density Deviations (DD). Density Deviations are measures in m or m2s-2.

Providing jobs to over 8000 people
Invested in 134 companies and projects since 1996
Present in 21 countries

Main Focus

We are going to invest 2 billion USD in Iraq, which is our most important market.

Finesta Group intends to invest in the rehabilitation, expansion, construction, and operation of
a world-class phosphate mine and fertilizer manufacturing investment project in lraq. This
project offers legitimate benefits for lraq including capital investment, technology transfer,
human resources development, and economic diversity.
