Vancouver, B.C., June 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trillion Energy International Inc. (“Trillion” or the “Company”) (CSE: TCF) (OTCQB: TRLEF) (Frankfurt: Z62) announces flow test results for the Bayhanli-2 natural gas well at the SASB gas field, offshore Turkey.
Eight intervals of gas pay with a true thickness of about 21 metres were perforated and tested in Bayhanli-2 and now are producing gas to the sales pipeline. The eight intervals within the E, D, C, A and AA gas sand reservoirs produced at a combined rate of 11.9 MMcf/d for the final flow test. The well is expected to be produced to pipeline with initial flow rates from between 8 and 9MMcf/d.
The Uranus Rig will now be moved to the Akkaya tripod to start drilling Alapli-2, the next well. Alapli-2 is a twin of a previously discovered gas pool but that has never been put onto production.
Arthur Halleran, CEO of Trillion, stated:
“Bayhanli-2 is our fifth well operation successfully drilled and producing gas at SASB. With multiple zones perforated, we expect a good producer which will also help us evaluate how to produce gas at maximum rates.”
