LEVIATHAN GAS PIPELINE PARTNERS, L.P., ANNOUNCES PIPELINE EXTENSION

 HOUSTON, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviathan Gas Pipeline Partners, L.P. (Leviathan) (NYSE: LEV), announced today that it has entered into a letter of intent with Amerada Hess Corporation (NYSE: AHC), Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: APC) and Marathon Oil Company to transport natural gas on Leviathan's Green Canyon Pipe Line from South Marsh Island Blocks 192 and 193 (SMI 192/193). Amerada Hess, Anadarko and Marathon each own a 33-1/3 percent interest in the oil and natural gas reserves underlying SMI 192/193.
 The letter of intent is subject to the parties entering into definitive agreements which will provide for the transportation of up to 60 million cubic feet of natural gas per day and further provide for the transportation of all of the reserves underlying SMI 192/193 by Leviathan for the life of the reserves.
 Leviathan anticipates constructing a 10 inch pipeline lateral approximately 1.7 miles from the Amerada Hess operated South Marsh Island Block 192 platform to an underwater tie-in with Green Canyon's existing facilities in South Marsh Island Block 205, all offshore Louisiana. The construction of the pipeline lateral is scheduled to commence in the fall of 1994 following the completion of the developmental drilling activity and setting of a production platform by Amerada Hess. Leviathan projects that the pipeline lateral will commence operations in the fourth quarter of 1994.
 Leviathan Gas Pipeline Partners, L.P. is a publicly owned partnership, which was formed to acquire, own and manage offshore natural gas pipeline systems and related assets. Leviathan currently has interests in seven fully operational natural gas pipelines located offshore Louisiana and Texas which transport natural gas production from the Gulf of Mexico.
