Total has found oil with its second exploratory well in Angolan ultra-deep offshore block 32. Canela-1, drilled in water 1,540 m deep, produced 6,800 b/d on test from a single reservoir. The find is located in the eastern part of the block, 15-km southeast of last year's Gindungo-1 discovery. Further geological and complementary engineering studies are planned to gauge Canela-1's potential. Total's partners in the block are Sonangol, Marathon, ExxonMobil, and Petrogal.
