Trillion Energy (CSE: TCF) has begun production at its most recently drilled well. The firm this morning revealed that the South Akcakoca-2 well has entered production, with gas sales already underway.
Initial production rates at the well are pegged at 3.0 MMcf/d, which is based on production that occurred from November 4 through to November 10. Production rates are gradually expected to increase over time, although a target rate was not provided by the company.
Trillion previously flow tested the well at 7.0 to 8.2 MMcf/d using a 32/64″ choke, with evaluations from the log identifying 32.9 metres of natural gas pay within the well.
“We are pleased to have achieved gas sales from South Akcakoca-2 ahead of schedule in cooperation with our partner, TPAO. During testing, no gas was vented to the atmosphere as the gas flow was contained within the pipeline production system,” commented CEO Arthur Halleran.
The Akcakoca-3 well meanwhile has now been cleared of old wireline after a fishing operation was conducted. A total of 600 kilograms of lost cable was collected from the borehole, with the well now readied for re-perforation which is slated to be conducted this week. The well is said to have remaining gas-bearing zones consisting of 34 metres of pay.
Production from the Akcakoca-3 well is expected to begin shortly after the completion of re-perforation. The well was originally placed into production in 2011, however has only been intermittently producing gas since November 2019 due to a mechanical issue related to production tubing.
“This Akcakoca-3 fishing operation could not be done earlier, as the Uranus rig was required due to the mechanical challenges faced. We look forward to perforating and putting the well back on production this week,” Halleran continued.
Trillion Energy last traded at $0.46 on the CSE.
