Petro Vista Provides Update on Sale of Interest in Tartaruga Block, Brazil

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 16, 2015) - Petro Vista Energy Corp. ("Petro Vista" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PTV), announces that the proposed sale, to Maha Energy Inc., of all of its 37.5% undivided working interest in the exploration and production contract covering the Tartaruga offshore hydrocarbon development block (the "Transaction"), as previously announced on June 15, 2015, is still in progress.

Both parties are working together to settle the final terms of a definitive and binding agreement for the purchase and sale of the Company's Brazilian subsidiary (the "Definitive Agreement") on substantially the same terms as set out in the Company's press release of June 15, 2015. The Company anticipates the execution of the Definitive Agreement on or before October 31, 2015. The delay in the execution of the Definitive Agreement is a result of the time necessarily taken by Maha to complete its due diligence on the operatorship of the Tartaruga block, which is now complete.

A further announcement will be made in due course.

ON BEHALF OF PETRO VISTA ENERGY CORP.

Keith Hill, Chairman of the Board of Directors

NEITHER THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE NOR ITS REGULATION SERVICES PROVIDER (AS THAT TERM IS DEFINED IN THE POLICIES OF THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE) ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF THIS RELEASE.
