The research paper on "The Newly Emerging Third World Oil Producers" (GI 82-10166) is a step in the right direction. I would like to see some background and information on the following: 1. What was the standard for selection of these seven countries? 2. What other countries have significant oil prospects? -- Malaysia -- Indonesia -- Morocco -- Egypt -- Angola -- Gabon -- Ecuador -- Peru -- Colombia -- Argentina -- Chile -- Kenya -- others 3. Which Third World countries have significant prospects for additional gas production? 4. What is the relevance of U.S. technology, know-how and capital to increase exploration and discovery in these countries? 5. What are the opportunities and obstacles to promoting deep drilling for deep gas facilities which has been so successful in Oklahoma, etc.? L, William J.
