Anatolia Energy Corp.’s partner, Çalik Enerji San. ve Tic. AS., has commenced drilling at the Guvenir-1 well on the Antep license in Turkey, where Anatolia holds 50% interest.
Guvenir-1 will be the first well to target the Dadas shale on the 845,418 acre Antep license where independent third party resource evaluator, Ryder Scott, has allocated 318 million barrels of unrisked prospective resources.
Drilling of the well is expected to take approximately 80 days to reach a total depth of approximately 8,500 ft (2,600 m). The company plans to extract core samples from the Dadas shale in Guvenir-1, which will be analyzed in a specialized core laboratory in Calgary for properties and rock mechanics.
Following receipt of the core analysis from the Guvenir-1 well, the company intends to conduct a fracture stimulation test within the Dadas shale. The test will provide critical data to help management design the optimal full horizontal well and multi-stage fracture stimulation, which is anticipated to more effectively and efficiently determine the productive capacity of the shale interval.
