TPAO producing gas from Ayazli field

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Mar. 19 -- Operator Turkish Petroleum Corp. (TPAO) has begun producing natural gas from Ayazli gas field in the Black Sea off Turkey, reported partner Stratic Energy Corp., Calgary.

Ayazli is the third gas field in which production has begun under Phase 1 of the South Akcakoca sub-basin development program. Production began last year from Akkaya and East Ayazli fields. Officials said initial flow rates from Ayazli support operator estimates that production from the field will average more than 10 MMscfd. Production from the two existing fields recently has been 17 MMscfd gross.

TPAO has started well intervention projects to add further perforations on the East Ayazli-2 well to increase production from that field.

TPAO has 51% interest in the permit area. Dallas-based Toreador Resources Corp. has 36.75%, and Stratic Energy has 12.25%.
