HAMILTON, Bermuda, Jan. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TransAtlantic Petroleum Ltd. (TSX:TNP) (NYSE-MKT:TAT) (the "Company" or "TransAtlantic") today provided an operational update on its current drilling program.

TransAtlantic ended the fourth quarter of 2013 with seven-day average production of 8,481 BOEPD gross and 5,084 BOEPD net. Net production on December 30, 2013 reached 5,198 BOEPD. Seven-day average net production was comprised of 3,001 BOPD of oil and 12.5 MMCFPD of natural gas. The Company currently has three active rigs in southeastern Turkey, one active rig in the Thrace Basin in northwestern Turkey and one active rig in Bulgaria. TransAtlantic spudded eight wells in the fourth quarter of 2013 and 35 total wells in 2013. The Company plans to drill between 33 and 49 wells in 2014.

Southeastern Turkey – Şelmo Field Development

TransAtlantic recently completed the first of four stages of the Şelmo-36H1 (100% working interest), its third horizontal well targeting the MSD zone at a true vertical depth of approximately 5,750 feet and a total cost of $2.8 million. The first stage had one-day initial production of 300 BOPD gross. The Company will complete the additional stages and its fourth horizontal MSD well in January 2014. The two MSD horizontal wells that TransAtlantic completed in December 2013 each have current average gross production of 375 BOPD.
