MCN'S SCULLION TO RETIRE; BHARGAVA TO HEAD SUBSIDIARY

 DETROIT, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- MCN Investment Corporation, a subsidiary of MCN Corporation (NYSE: MCN), will undergo a change of leadership on Jan. 1, 1994, when current President and Chief Executive Officer Patrick J. Scullion retires.
 Scullion's retirement was announced by MCN Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Alfred R. Glancy III, who also named Rai P. Bhargava to succeed Scullion to the MCN Investment Corporation (MCNIC) top post at the end of the year. Bhargava is currently executive vice president and chief operating officer at MCNIC.
 "Although I respect and admire Pat's reasons, I sincerely regret accepting his decision to retire early," Glancy said. "For 38 years he has been a major contributor to our companies' successes, particularly at Michigan Consolidated Gas Company where he led our efforts in expanding our distribution system, as well as developing new markets and new applications for natural gas.
 "Pat's innovative approaches to the marketing and delivery of natural gas have enabled us to successfully compete during a period of major change in the structure of the natural gas industry," Glancy added.
 "We are extremely fortunate, however, to have someone with Rai's expertise and experience ready to continue in Pat's role," Glancy said. "Rai has played a major role in developing MCN's nonutility storage, brokerage, exploration and cogeneration businesses. He and Pat have worked together closely for a number of years, assuring a smooth transition among the management team."
 Scullion, 60, joined Michigan Consolidated Gas Company (MichCon) in 1955, and held numerous leadership positions at the utility in marketing, engineering and regulatory affairs before being appointed in 1986 as senior vice president of marketing, distribution and engineering. He was named to his current position at MCNIC in 1992.
 A graduate of Lawrence Institute of Technology and Detroit College of Law, Scullion has spearheaded MCN's research and development program centered on adsorbed natural gas (ANG), a technique permitting storage of natural gas under low pressures that could lead to a major breakthrough in the economics of natural gas-fueled vehicles.
 "Pat has agreed to continue to lead our efforts to commercialize our research and development projects on a part-time, consulting basis after his retirement," Glancy said.
 A resident of Taylor, Mich., Scullion intends on returning to college to get a teacher's certificate and teach math and science in the public schools to "give something back to the community."
 Bhargava, 46, has been with MCN and MichCon for 19 years. His experience in the gas industry covers many aspects of the business, including marketing, planning, finance, regulation, energy management consulting and contract negotiations. He was vice president of marketing for MichCon from July 1988, until named to his current position in July of this year.
 As successor to Scullion at MCNIC, Bhargava also will become chairman of several MCNIC subsidiaries, including Citizens Gas Fuel Company in Adrian, Mich., CoEnergy Ventures Inc. in Detroit, and The Genix Group Inc., MCN's computer operations services company in Dearborn, Mich.
 Bhargava, who will report directly to Glancy, is a graduate of Rensselear Polytechnic Institute with a master's degree in mechanical engineering, and a graduate of State University of New York with a master's degree in business administration/finance. He is a resident of Farmington Hills, Mich.
 MCN Corporation is the holding company for MCNIC, which owns subsidiaries in the gas services, computer operations services and natural gas technology businesses; for MichCon, a natural gas distribution, transmission and storage company serving 1.1 million customers in more than 500 communities throughout Michigan; and for Citizens Gas Fuel Company, a Michigan natural gas utility.
