    HOUSTON, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- American National Petroleum Company (NASDAQ: ANPC) (the "company") announced today that they have entered into an exploration and drilling program with Fina Oil and Chemical Company (AMEX: FI) ("FINA") for the purpose of exploring and developing potential oil and gas reserves under FINA's 15,000 fee mineral acres, located in Beauregard Parish, La.
    In general, FINA will make available to ANPC the Beauregard Parish acreage and any existing geophysical and geological data.  In exchange, ANPC has agreed to reprocess approximately 153 miles of seismic data and to drill a minimum of two wells on or before July 1, 1993.
