 FIRST U.S. ETHYLENE EXPORT
 HOUSTON, Feb. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Mitsubishi Corp. and Chevron


Chemical Company have announced the first U.S. export shipment of ethylene from the Galena Park Terminal on the Houston Ship Channel. The two companies, together with Exxon Chemical Company, are participants in the export facility.
 The Galena Park Terminal was upgraded for capability to import ethylene in 1988. Additional modifications in 1991 made ethylene export possible as well. This completes the deep sea link of the United States to other major production and consumption sites around the world.
 The first export shipment is destined for Polipropileno Del Caribe S.A. (Propilco) in Colombia. The ethylene cargo will be used as co- monomer in the production of polypropylene.
 In 1990, deep sea trade for cryogenic ethylene exceeded one million metric tons, having increased rapidly from 60,000 metric tons in 1980.
