 KERR-MCGEE LICENSES ROSE(R) TECHNOLOGY TO PRODUCE ASPHALTENES
 FOR USE IN ELECTRICAL POWER GENERATION
 OKLAHOMA CITY, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time, Kerr-McGee Corp. (NYSE: KMG) has licensed the ROSE(R) (Residuum Oil Supercritical Extraction) process to produce asphaltenes to be used for electrical power generation. The license was granted to ISAB S.p.A. for a grassroots unit at ISAB's Syracuse, Sicily, Italy plant. The unit will extract valuable deasphalted oil from a visbroken resid and provide an asphaltene feedstock to a gasifier for electrical power generation.
 Owned and licensed by Kerr-McGee, the energy-efficient ROSE technology is one of the leading processes available for upgrading bottoms -- the heaviest, least valuable fraction in the refining of crude oil.
 A total of 13 ROSE units are currently in operation.
