Essar Energy has taken a significant step towards buying Shell’s refinery at Stanlow, on the south bank of the Manchester Ship Canal near Ellesmere Port in Cheshire.

Essar has until March 31 to confirm that it wants to buy Stanlow. If it decides not to proceed, it will be liable for a break fee of $50m. If Essar decides to go ahead, Shell will have three days to decide whether to accept – and it will be liable for a $10m fee if it turns down the offer.
