It is believed that this deal will help in building a good relation between both the countries Russia and India. This is the biggest acquisition deal that has ever took place between these counries.

The transaction is supposed to bring Rosneft with 49.13% holding in Essar Oil and the rest will be divided in equal parts between Trafigura and UCP Russian fund, Essars company statement stated.

This deal will help Rosneft and other investors to get hold off to 4,00,000 barrels per day in Gujarat and Essars 3,500 retail fuel stations in India.

This deal will help Essar Group in handling its debt burden situation with the cutting of its debt to about $11 billion from its total.
