Sale Prices for Natural Gas Increase to Record high of US $17.93 /MCF
April 5, 2022 – Vancouver, BC – Trillion Energy International Inc. (“Trillion” or the “Company”) (CSE: TCF) (Frankfurt: Z62) recently received a price increase for sales of natural gas from its SASB gas field to USD $17.93/mcf. The price increase is effective April 1, 2022.
During the first quarter of 2022, prices hovered in the USD $13/mcf range, thus, the increase is about 40%. In contrast, the average natural gas sale price received during 2021 was approximately USD $8.84/mcf.
The Company believes the circumstances driving increased energy prices including seasonal demand, cancellation of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to Europe from Russia and the regional conflict in Ukraine.
Moreover, a recent study by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) predicts Turkiye will have the highest GDP growth of all OECD countries over the next 10 years. The Company currently sells its production in Turkiye.
The Company’s December 31, 2021, year-end resources and reserves reports prepared by GLJ uses natural gas pricing of between USD $8-10/mcf, almost half of current prices.
Dr. Art Halleran, CEO stated:
“With the continued escalation of natural gas prices in Europe & Turkiye and the world turning away from Russian sourced natural gas, we are very optimistic about having positive outcomes for our SASB natural gas drilling program scheduled for later this year.”
