Trillion Energy International Inc. started production at the Akcakoca-3 natural gas well at SASB gas field, offshore Turkey.
Three sands with a total of 34 m of natural gas pay were identified for perforation in the well. Upon perforating the upper 7 m, the well flowed at 7 MMcfd on a 32/64-in. choke with 1,400 psi wellhead pressure.
Based on initial gas flow and reservoir pressure data from this first set of perforations, the well will produce from this zone and Trillion will perforate the remaining two sands (totaling 27 m) at a future date once production from the initial perforated interval starts to decline.
The final production flow rate will ultimately be established at the process site.
Trillion plans to drill five wells at SASB during its 2022-23 drilling program (OGJ Online, May 20, 2022).
Trillion Energy owns 49% of SASB field.
