419. On A Dead Thread... Jul 11, 2002, 13:54 Politically Censored
 
#414 - well, I dunno how Vietnam was a war over oil, was more to stop the spread of comunism and Soviet influence...

"Moreover, the official Russian RIA news agency quoted Khristenko as saying that VSP's geologists reassessed reserves of Vietsovpetro's main oil field, Bach Ho (White Tiger). According to previous estimates, the off-shore oil field contained 430 million tons of oil, while recently the figure was raised up to 498 million tons.

Initially discovered by Mobil in the closing months of Vietnam War drama in late 1974, basement reservoirs off the South Vietnam shores proved to be viable sources of oil and gas."
