JOHN W. WELCH NEW PRESIDENT OF EQUITABLE GAS

 PITTSBURGH, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Equitable Gas Company announced today that John W. Welch, executive vice president, will succeed John V. Milantoni as president of the Pittsburgh-based utility effective Nov. 1.
 Welch began his professional career in 1974 with Equitable Gas Company's distribution department. He expanded his experience through positions in the company's land/real estate and insurance & risk departments. He has also held the posts of operations planner and manager in the company's resource management department which included gas storage, geology and company production. Welch was promoted to Equitable's marketing department as director in 1988. Under his leadership, and in response to a more competitive energy marketplace, Equitable's marketing function was expanded significantly to include the development of new services and uses for natural gas. In 1990, Welch was appointed vice president of Marketing and Energy Services, the new title reflecting the continuing growth of the company's market-related activities. Since his election to executive vice president in 1991, Welch's sphere of responsibilities has encompassed rate making, distribution, gas supply and customer service as well as marketing.
 The new president is a 1974 graduate of Penn State University, and holds a B.S. degree in environmental resource management. He is a member of the American and Pennsylvania Gas Associations, the executive board of the Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition, the board of directors of the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, Duquesne University Marketing Advisory Board, and the West Virginia Oil and Gas Association. He is a past member of the National Meter Reading Association and has published numerous articles on remote meter reading.
 Welch, his wife Cheryl and their three children, Whitney, Ashley and Casey, live in Ford City, Pa.
