A combined 98.26 percent stake in EOL has been acquired for 12.9 billion U.S. dollars, an EOL statement said.

Rosneft has bought a 49.13 percent stake, and the Trafigura-UCP consortium has acquired an equal stake. The remaining 1.74 percent stake will continue to be held by retail shareholders, it said.

The transaction included the sale of EOL's Vadinar oil refinery and retail assets for 10.9 billion dollars together with Vadinar port and related infrastructure assets for 2 billion dollars.

The agreement on the EOL purchase, representing Russia's largest ever foreign investment and single largest tranche of foreign direct investment in India, was reached in October 2016.

The Vadinar port has a capacity of 58 million tons with world-class dispatch and storage facilities.
