Some 99.74 per cent of shareholders agreed to sell the 50 per cent stake, which brings Aminex’s interest in the prospect to 25 per cent.
The explorer, which is listed on both the Irish and London stock exchanges, signed a farm out agreement related to its flagship Ntorya project in Tanzania which will see it receive a cash payment of $5 million (€4.25 million) in two tranches.
The agreement with Zubair means they will operate the asset through a new company, ARA Petroleum Tanzania.
In July, Aminex said it expects the farm out to elevate the asset to a minimum gross production rate of 40 million cubic feet per day.
