The second discovery is the Alapli-1 well, operated by TPAO and located to the northeast of the Akkaya Field in an area just outside and adjacent to the SASB project area. The well tested approximately 6.8 million cubic feet of gas per day through a 32/64-inch choke at a flowing pressure of 1,064 psi. Approximately 12 meters of perforations in 2 zones between 1,068 and 1,080 meters true vertical depth in the Kusuri formation contributed to the flow test. Another zone from 1,239 to 1,242 meters true vertical depth is due to be tested within the next few days. The Prometeu jackup, which drilled the Alapli-1, will drill a well for TPAO in another permit area before coming back to the SASB to set the Ayazli tripod and topsides in late April.
Topsides set on Akkaya tripod; Dogu Ayazli topsides awaiting weather window for installation
The topsides for the Akkaya production tripod have been set and secured. The next step is to tie the three Akkaya wells into the production manifold and then tie in the offshore pipeline. Once this process is complete, estimated to take approximately two weeks, the wells will be ready to be put on production.
The topsides for the Dogu Ayazli tripod are on location, waiting for seas to moderate before attempting to lift the structure onto the tripod. Approximately two weeks will be required to tie in the two Dogu Ayazli wells and the offshore pipeline once the topsides are secured.
