Vancouver, B.C. , Nov. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trillion Energy International Inc. (“Trillion” or the “Company”) (CSE: TCF) (OTCQB: TRLEF) (Frankfurt: Z62) today announced flow test results for the South Akcakoca-2 natural gas well at SASB gas field, offshore Turkey.
The final log evaluation identified a total of 32.9 metres of natural gas pay within 5 sands in the Akcakoca Member.
Two of the lower sands (D, C) were perforated over a combined interval of 22.1 metres MD. The well was then flow tested into the SASB production facilities at 7.0 – 8.2 MMcf/d with a 32/64” choke. Reservoir pressure built up to 1690 psi during shut in. The full 22.1 metres perforation interval is currently undergoing a long-term production test.
The well results are in line with expectations and based on known production characteristics of historical gas wells at SASB. Final production flow rates will be provided when measurement at the onshore gas processing facility is completed.
The additional upper interval of 10.8 metres of pay identified through logs as gas bearing sands will be perforated in the future after production for the initial interval starts to decline.
Arthur Halleran CEO of Trillion stated:
“The results from the flow-test in the lower intervals are in line with our expectations for the South Akcakoca-2 gas well. We are very pleased that the first of our multi-well program has been completed successfully. This is an excellent start to our program.”
