Trillion Energy Commences Work Program At SASB Gas Field

May 23, 2024 - Vancouver, B.C. - Trillion Energy International Inc. (“Trillion or the “Company”) (CSE: TCF) (OTCQB: TRLEF) (Frankfurt: Z62) is pleased to provide this update and announce it has commenced operations program at the SASB Gas field, Turkey which will occur over a two-month period. 

Operations are being conducted in several phases and involve seven or eight wells at the SASB gas field, including all six wells drilled/completed last year as well as a few older wells that historically experienced water loading issues. 

Approximately 16,500 meters of velocity strings, new well heads and other tangibles have been ordered and are being received at shore base proximate to the Akcakoca port on an ongoing basis. Order delivery has been occurring over the last month and expected to continue as the work program unfolds. Service contractors have been engaged for perforations, well tractors, tubing running services; as well as marine vessels required to convey the equipment 14 kilometers offshore. 

June Operations

49 meters of gas pay in four wells will be perforated commencing mid-June 2024, followed by initial velocity string installation in the AKK-3 well. Gas velocity strings, a key focus of this work program (velocity strings restrict the amount of water entering tubing to prevent water loading) are expected to improve well performance for long-term stabilize production. June operations will occur on the Akcakoca platform including Guluc-2, South Akcakoca-2, West Akcakoca-1 and Akcakoca-3 wells. This operation is estimated at 20 days’ time.  


July Operations

The second set of operations commences during July and involves installation of gas velocity strings in 6 or more wells on the Akcakoca Platform and two tripods. Pump installation is anticipated in one or more older wells, which were not part of Trillion’s 2022-2023 drilling program on an as needed basis.  


Private Placement

We are also pleased to announce we intend to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to 15,000,000 units of Trillion (the "Common Shares") at a price of $0.09 per unit, for aggregate gross proceeds of up to a maximum of $1,350,000 (the "Offering").
