Türkiye Petrolleri Anonim Ortaklığı (TPAO) discovers a colossal gas field in Western Black Sea offshore, first ever gas discovery in Turkish ultra-deep water.
TPAO performs hydrocarbon exploration, drilling, production, refinery and marketing activities on behalf of the Turkish Republic.
The Sakarya Gas Field is the world’s 2nd largest discovery in 2020 and is located 175 km offshore Ereğli, Turkey.
Tuna-1 well data and geophysical studies show a potential of 320 billion cubic meters of lean gas which represents the largest discovery in Black Sea.
There is also an expectation of additional upside potential down at the undrilled section of the well.
