Vancouver, B.C., Feb. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trillion Energy International Inc. (“Trillion” or the “Company”) (CSE: TCF) (OTCQB: TRLEF) (Frankfurt: Z62) is pleased to provide a progress update on the Guluc 2 and West Akcakoca 1 wells at the SASB Gas field, Black Sea Turkiye.
Guluc-2 is the third well in our multi-well program, which reached total depth (TD) on Jan 31 as previously announced in our February 2 news release. We initially anticipated perforation and flow testing last week; however, completion has been temporarily delayed while we await delivery of well tools to allow the perforation guns to be properly conveyed and positioned into the well. Shipping issues due to the earthquakes caused delays in receiving certain tools, but we are expecting to receive the tools later this week.
To avoid the rig standing idle waiting for tools, it has been skidded to the West Akcakcoa-1 well (“WA-1”) (to which 1008 metres of surface hole was previously drilled late in 2022) which will now be drilled to TD. After drilling of WA-1 is complete, both WA-1 and Guluc-2 wells will be perforated for production.
