This is the second largest energy-sector transaction of all time, after Exxon’s merger with Mobil. And at the time, it was the largest ever takeover of a UK-listed company.

Essar Oil operates India’s second largest refinery and largest private sector oil retail network. The transaction also includes the Vadinar port and related infrastructure.

The deal will be the single largest tranche of foreign direct investment in India.

One of the largest investment treaty arbitrations in history, the case concerned the expropriation of three oil investments collectively worth tens of billions of dollars.

A favourable award on liability has been obtained.

The sale was the largest and most complex transaction in the European energy sector in 2016.

The transaction created a vertically integrated super-major, fundamentally changing the industry and cementing our reputation for handling the biggest, most complex deals in the market.

The portfolio includes onshore wind and solar assets in the UK, Europe, Latin America and the US valued at over $2bn, along with substantial commitments for future projects.

The project includes the construction of a 200MW combined cycle gas turbine plant, and liquefied natural gas receiving, storage and regasification facilities. 

The power plant will be the first to be owned and operated by the private sector in Malta.
