Trillion announces gas pay in West Akcakoca 1 well in Turkey

Canada-listed Trillion Energy International on March 14 announced preliminary gas indications from the West Akcakoca 1 well, the fourth well in its multi-well programme at the SASB gas field in the Turkish Black Sea. 

West Akcakoca 1 reached 3,839 m total measured depth and true vertical depth of 1,677 m. “During the drilling, an abundance of gas pay was discovered. Our analysis of logging while drilling data suggests 55 m of potential natural gas pay within 6 sands in the Akcakoca member (SASB production zone),” the company said.

Trillion said that the initial perforation intervals are currently being selected to bring the well into production. Completion and flow testing will occur once the well is perforated, with revenue being generated prior to month end, it added.

After completion of the West Akcakoca 1 well, the rig will be skidded back to the Guluc-2 well for completion. The Guluc-2 well is scheduled to be put onto production by the end of March.

Trillion is focused on natural gas and has assets in Turkiye and Bulgaria. The company is 49% owner of the SASB natural gas field; a 19.6% (except three wells with 9.8%) interest in the Cendere oil field; and in Bulgaria, the Vranino 1-11 block, a prospective unconventional natural gas property.
