Petrel announces that, following the Results of AGM announcement of 25th July 2018, it has duly entered into and completed each of:


(i)         the contract between Amira Petroleum N.V., Amira International Holding Limited and the Company for the purchase of 16,147,368 ordinary shares of €0.0125 each in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares") for nominal consideration; and

The aggregate 16,747,368 Ordinary Shares will immediately be cancelled upon their repurchase by the Company (the 'Cancellation').



The purchase consideration of £20 was satisfied by the issue of 1,000 Ordinary Shares to Elena Howard at a price of 2p per Ordinary Share (the 'Consideration Shares').


Application will be made for the Consideration Shares, which will rank pari passu with the existing Ordinary Shares, to be admitted to trading on AIM ('Admission'). It is expected that Admission will become effective and dealings will commence at 8:00am on 7th August 2018.


Total voting rights

Following both the issue of the Consideration Shares and completion of the Cancellation, the Company's issued share capital will comprise 82,935,624 Ordinary Shares, none of which is held in treasury. This figure of 82,935,624 Ordinary Shares may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
