Essar Energy's operations straddle the global power, and oil and gas industries with existing operations and projects under development in both.
The company is one of India's largest private power producers with over 14-year operating track record. Its power business currently has seven operational power plants in India and one in Algoma, Canada, with a total installed generation capacity of 3,830 MW.
As part of its oil & gas interests, Essar also owns a portfolio of onshore and offshore oil & gas blocks with about 1.7 billion barrels of oil equivalent in reserves and resources. It operates India’s highest producing CBM (Coal Bed Methane) block in Raniganj, West Bengal, and owns four other CBM blocks.
Essar Energy's refining and marketing business consists of the Stanlow refinery, UK’s second largest refinery. Essar Energy serves retail customers in UK through a modern, countrywide network of 40-plus operational retail fuel outlets, with a target to grow this network to 400 outlets in the next five years.
