Trillion Energy International has provided an operational update for the SASB gas field.

Trillion is starting the SASB revitalization project now as all relevant equipment and supplies for the start of the operations arrive mid-April 2024. As mentioned previously a total of 49 metres of new gas pay will be perforated in Guluc-2, South Akcakoca-2, West Akcakoca-1 and Akcakoca-3 prior to the installation of the artificial gas lift.

Shifting the start of the SASB revitalization project from the end of the 1st Qtr. to the beginning of the 2nd Qtr. was the result of 'the only solution is the correct solution'. Previously, the SASB AL program consisted of PCP pumps, ESP pumps and velocity strings. However, with new skilled personnel hired that has changed to predominantly velocity strings for step one and years down the road a water pump installed to prevent future water loading. A velocity string is just a smaller diameter production tubing, as currently the new wells have 4 ½” production tubing and the company will just thread 2 3/8” production tubing inside of the 4 ½” tubing.

Al Thorsen states: 'From my experience, velocity strings are the best solution at this stage of the gas producing wells as velocity strings are cheap to install, relatively simple to operate, have no moving parts and are well suited to high gas producing wells. These wells have large volumes of gas yet to produce and the velocity string is the first step, in the future 5 to 6 years from now when the wells have most of the gas produced, at that time PCP pumps or ESP will be installed to extend the gas producing life of the wells'.

Installing velocity strings requires substantially less capital compared to installing PCPs and is much faster.

Further updates will be provided as SASB’s gas production increases.
