Vancouver, B.C., Nov. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trillion Energy International Inc. (“Trillion” or the “Company”) (CSE: TCF) (OTCQB: TRLEF) (Frankfurt: Z62) is pleased to announce commencement of the recompletion of the Akcakoca-3 natural gas well, the second operation in the Company’s 17 well SASB development program.
On October 31, 2022, the Uranus Rig was repositioned 3 meters while at the Akcakoca Platform to the Akcakoca-3 well slot. The recompletion will replace the bent 2 ½” tubing with 4 ½” tubing, perforate remaining gas zones upon which time the well will be put back onto production. The recompletion started on November 1st and is expected to take 12 days.
The Akcakoca-3 well originally entered production during March 2011 and has produced 9.78 Bcf (100% interest) of natural gas to date. The well encountered mechanical issues with the production tubing and water build-up and as a result, has only intermittently produced gas since November 2019. The well is expected to start producing natural gas again immediately upon recompletion.
