However, the completion of the deal awaits due diligence exercise and required regulatory approvals. Upon completion, Ardova will takeover 90 stations across 15 states of the country, and have access to Enyo’s over 100,000 daily retail customers.

The take over led to a change of name from Forte Oil to Ardova.
