Trillion spuds 5th well at SASB gas project in Turkey
Canada-listed Trillion Energy on April 11 announced the spudding of the Bayhanli-2 well at the SASB gas field located in the Turkish Black Sea. Bayhanli-2 is the fifth gas well in the company’s multi-well drilling programme at the project.
“The well targets a previously discovered gas pool, which was never previously produced, through a long reach directional well bore to enable production. The Bayhanli gas pool is a significant target and may likely require additional wells in the future to fully produce the economic reserves,” Trillion 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.
Upon completion, the Bayhanli-2 well is expected to reach a total measured depth of 3,400 m and a true vertical depth of about 1,200 m, extending horizontally over 2 km from the East Ayazli offshore tripod. The well was spud on April 5 and is currently drilled to a depth of 496 m. Trillion expects that drilling, casing, perforation and testing will take a total of about 45 days.
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.
