I have three kegs that had similar looking valves (better pics of. The valves might help) but mine were threaded. My kegs were not bass, and we're from a California cider producer. Hopes this helps, understand if doesn't

does it have pressure? If not I would just drill small hole in the top and cut the lid?

I'm on my phone, so I can't figure out how to put the link in, go to the search box and enter in "help with Bass keg". It looks like it has the info you are looking for.

Yes it looks like that, what i can assume from your pics is that you just hammererd the flange counter clockwise until it would hand loosen??

Actually when I got mine they had already been removed, and we're only hand tightened. If you don't care about the valves, which look to be toast anyway, I would probably say use a monkey wrench or something else to get a good grip, and try to get it loosened up

I had a keg like this in the past. I put a big monkey wrench on it then hit the end of the wrench with a hammer. Was not too hard to get it loose.
