Under the agreement, which begins in the fourth quarter of 2024, Halliburton will construct exploration and appraisal wells and provide testing services.

Rhino Resources-operated Block 2914A (PEL 85) is in the shallower portion of the Orange Basin and located less than 20 km from the nearest discovery. In late 2022, Rhino conducted a 3D seismic survey that indicated multiple viable plays and drillable prospects.
