Petro Vista said it was now free "to close the transaction."

PVEB holds a 37.5% working interest in the exploration and production contract for the offshore Tartaruga block in the Sergipe-Alagoas basin.

As part of the deal Maha also agreed to loan Petro Vista an unspecified sum to cover its outstanding obligations for the Tartaruga block.
