Trillion announces gas pay at Turkish Black Sea field

Vancouver-based Trillion Energy announced on February 2 the discovery of a 73-m gas pay at its Guluc-2 well at the SASB field in the Turkish Black Sea.

"Our analysis of the logging while drilling results for the Guluc-2 well suggests 73 m of potential natural gas pay within 14 separate sands in the Akcakoca member," the company said.


The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.

Guluc-2 was drilled to a total measured depth of 3,910 m. It found three sand gas reservoirs greater than 9-m thickness, and the logging while drilling identified gas sands correlating with natural gas detected at surface in drilling mud, Trillion said.

Initial perforation intervals are being selected to bring the well into production, the company said, noting that only lower zones were expected to be perforated initially. Completion and flow-testing will take place over the coming weekend, it said.

Guluc-2 is the third well in Trillion's drilling campaign at the SASB field.

"We are now 3 for 3 drilling at SASB. The Guluc-2 well exceeded our expectations in gas saturated potential pay with 73 m, compared to only about 20 m of gas pay discovered in the Guluc-1 well drilled over 10 years ago," Trillion CEO Arthur Halleran said in a statement. "We are excited about flow testing the well and putting it into production next week, during a high price gas environment."
