The drilling rig is currently being prepared and is expected to arrive August 29, 2022 

August 22, 2022 – Vancouver, B.C. – Trillion Energy International Inc. (“Trillion” or the “Company”) (CSE: TCF) (OTCQB: TRLEF) (Frankfurt: Z62) is pleased to announce the Uranus drilling rig is currently being prepared to move to the SASB natural gas field, Black Sea, for the Company’s multi-well drilling program and is expected to arrive on August 29, 2022.

The Company’s multi-well drilling development program initially includes seven natural gas production wells set to come online during a time when acute natural gas shortages are menacing Europe and Turkey. Natural gas prices continue to spike through historical records as the prospect of a cold winter looms with the worst shortages expected to come.

The rig is currently undergoing a rigorous inspection, survey and permitting process, where we have hired ModuSpec UK to carry out an inspection and testing before the rig is deployed. The process is going as planned, with no major problems being identified to date. Final inspection and acceptance is anticipated on or about August 26th at which time the rig will be hauled by marine ships to the SASB Gas field.

Transport time is expected to be 3 days. When it arrives, the rig will be positioned at the Akcakoca offshore production platform. Positioning and jack up of the rig should take one day, weather permitting. Other preparations will take two more days before the first well is spud on or about September 1 this year.

Arthur Halleran CEO stated:

We are pleased to announce a clear path to drilling and gas production -we are counting the days before we embark on this historic milestone achievement to bring substantial new gas production into the region at a critical time”.
