The company announced on Feb. 16, it had signed a purchase order with Schlumberger to provide all engineering design services and drilling support for new well drilling operations at the SASB gas field in the Black Sea.
Trillion Energy is the 49% owner of the SASB natural gas field, one of the Black Sea’s 1st and largest-scale natural gas development projects.
Schlumberger will design long reach, directionally drilled development wells, capable of reaching more than 2 km horizontally from the rig location /production platforms, eliminating the necessity for costly subsea tie-ins for most wells.
Art Halleran, Trillion Energy CEO, said:
- Schlumberger brings best in class engineering and drilling support services to our tool kit at SASB
- Using their long reach drilling technology, directional drilling tools, and their vast hands-on engineering experience, Schlumberger significantly lowers our capital costs for bringing new wells into production and increases the anticipated returns.
- They also significantly lower our drilling risks
