    Background: Members of the Cuban Institute of Petroleum are drilling at Barrera, 17 miles east of Havana, near the coast, for oil. So far test holes have brought up plenty of water but no geysers of oil.

    This is the first of three test drilling, partly supervised by Argentinians. On foreign expert on the site said he expected to be bathing in oil very soon. Another Argentinian said these explorations will "prove that to find petroleum is not a privilege of large companies."
    Equipment on site is designed for between 3,000 and 3,500 feet. And atop the derrick - the Cuban National Flag.
