HEFTY TESTS BUOY PHILIPPINE OIL SECTOR
Alcorn International Inc., Houston, has disclosed a test of another hefty oil flow off Philippines. Alcorn last month completed its third high flowing delineation well in the West Linapacan area off Palawan Island. Development of West Linapacan field will help boost lagging Philippines oil production, which fell 31% in 1991 from 1990 levels. Philippines' Office of Energy Affairs (OEA) also outlined other aspects of the country's oil and gas activity in 1991.
