Filipino-UK firm to drill for gas in disputed sea

MANILA, — Pangilinan said Forum still intends to drill two wells in first half of 2016.

"We will do it on our own if we have to... as long as we are not disturbed," he said.

The Department of Energy has extended Forum's delayed drilling program by a year, giving it up to Aug. 15, 2016 to fulfil its contractual obligations. Pangilinan said weather would permit drilling only from March to May.
