ANKARA (Turkey), January 11 (SeeNews) - Turkish Petroleum (TPAO) said that a daily flow of 1.15 million cubic metres (mcm) of natural gas was achieved after a successful flow test of the first reservoir section in Turkali-1 appraisal well in the Sakarya gas field, in the western part of the Black Sea.

The offshore well has an estimated gas production potential of 2.7 mcm per day, according to collected data and analysis, TPAO said in a statement published on its Twitter profile on Monday. "Results proved excellent well deliverability and reservoir connectivity," the company noted.

Data and samples acquired from the flow test will be used to further optimise the field development work and to refine the preliminary engineering and design studies to be completed shortly after the well tests. The first natural gas is expected to reach the natural gas processing facility to be established in Filyos in 2023, the company said.

The well flow tests in the field are carried out by the drillship Kanuni, which joined the TPAO inventory in 2020.

Ankara-based TPAO is active in gas exploration and production in five countries around the world. TPAO is also engaged in unconventional exploration, natural gas storage, deepwater exploration, and pipeline transportation, according to information published on the company's LinkedIn profile.
