(Trading Symbol: PHIL), a U.S. public company engaged in energy and natural resources, announced today that the Company has signed agreements with two Vietnam-based companies to secure more than one billion cubic meters of sea sand in the southern provinces of Vietnam for export to Singapore, Brunei and other Asian markets.
