 NUEVO REPORTS THAT COMPLETION OPERATIONS ARE UNDERWAY
 ON THE PROVOST NO. 2 WELL AT WEEKS ISLAND
 HOUSTON, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Nuevo Energy Company (NYSE: NEV) today announced results of its Provost Cyr No. 2 Well drilled at Weeks Island, La.
 Over 150 feet of potentially productive sands have been encountered and the operator is currently conducting completion operations. Nuevo will report initial test results within 15 days. Due to difficult drilling conditions, Nuevo was unable to penetrate the targeted deeper sands, but believes the current completion will result in significant production and additional reserves. An ongoing drilling program is being evaluated not only to add further production, but also to successfully complete a deep test. Nuevo remains convinced that deeper productive sands remain to be discovered and will commence the drilling of a deeper test during the first half of 1992.
