Vancouver, B.C., Dec. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Trillion Energy International Inc. (“Trillion” or the “Company”) (CSE: TCF) (OTCQB: TRLEF) (Frankfurt: Z62) is pleased to have commenced drilling of the Guluc-2 natural well and to have completed the West Akcakoca-1 well 17 ½” diameter section to 1,008 metres depth, at the SASB natural gas field, Black Sea.

Upon completion of drilling, the Guluc-2 well will be cased, perforated, and tested. Logging is occurring while drilling. Upon completion, the rig will move back to and complete the West Akcakoca-1 well. Both well operations involve long reach directional wells drilled from the Akçakoca platform, targeting gas reserves at the East and West flanks of the Akcakoca gas field.

Upon successful completion of the two wells, natural gas will be produced and sold to market almost immediately. The Guluc-2 well is expected to commence production towards the end of January 2023; while West Akcakoca-1 is expected to be completed during March 2022. Revenues from the wells will be used for further field development at SASB. The number of new producing wells at SASB will increase from two wells to four upon completion of Guluc-2 and West Akcakoca-1.

After these wells at the Akçakoca platform are completed, the rig will move to the East Ayazli tripod.
