Offshore Fields


Gas production from Ayazlı, D. Ayazlı, Akkaya and Akçakoca fields in joint licenses have continued throughout the years. In production wells of Akçakoca platform, additional perforation was made. By revision of the compressor, the production has continued even in low pressure. Geological and geophysical evaluation continued for new exploration targets that are economical.


Partnership meetings with Shell for a part of No: AR/TPO/3920 license (Black Sea) initiated in 2012 and it has been reached an agreement. It was inured with Cabinet Decree.
