INTRODUCTION



Although there is no commercial production of petroleum in the Philippines, seeps are widely distributed throughout the islands (Corby, et al., 1951).

This report describes an investigation of the chemical composition of two samples of oil. These oils were obtained through the courtesy of the Philippine Bureau of Mines. One oil came from Quezon Province, the other from Mindoro Oriental.
