Trillion Energy's Bayhanli-2 Gas Well Enters Production

Bayhanli-2 well successfully tested at a rate of 11.9 MMcf/day

Trillion Energy International Inc. (“Trillion” or the “Company”) 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.”
