DNO Norge has drilled Canela, well 6507/7-16 S, located 4 km west of Heidrun. The well drilled a 52 m gas column in Jurassic reservoirs. Preliminary calculations place the size of the Canela prospect between 6.3 and 12.5 mmboe.

The objective of the well was to prove petroleum in the Early and Middle Jurassic: Garn, Ile and Tilje Formations.

Well 6507/7-16 S encountered a total gas column of 52 m in the Garn, Not and Ile Formations, of which 48 m of sandstone with good to very good reservoir quality.
