The prospect is located on the Haltenbanken in the Norwegian Sea, approximately 14 km southeast of the Heidrun field. The well 6507/11-11 is being drilled by the Leiv Eiriksson rig to a total depth of 3000 metres.

According to North Energy, a partner in the licence, the total drilling operation is estimated to be completed in 60 days. The company noted that the objective of the well is to detect hydrocarbons in the upper Jurassic sandstones.
