MOBIL BEGINS CONVERTING SHELL STATIONS IN MILWAUKEE

 MOBIL BEGINS CONVERTING SHELL STATIONS IN MILWAUKEE
 MILWAUKEE, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobil Corporation (NYSE: MOB)


today began the conversion of 16 Shell service stations in the Milwaukee area to Mobil service stations, bringing the number of Mobil stations in the Milwaukee metropolitan area to 39. The transaction between Mobil and Shell was announced last October. Mobil has 537 service stations throughout Wisconsin.
 "The addition of these stations to the Mobil network significantly strengthens our position in the market, which in turn, improves our ability to serve the motoring customer," said James T. Mann, Mobil's vice president for U.S. marketing.
 "This expansion in Milwaukee is an excellent fit for Mobil's gasoline business in the Midwest, since this area is directly supported by our Joliet, Ill. refinery," he said.
 Located southwest of Chicago, Mobil's Joliet refinery has the capacity to refine 200,000 barrels of crude oil per day, and make 4.5 million gallons of gasoline daily for the Midwest.
 Timothy Sheehy, executive vice president of the Milwaukee Association of Commerce, said: "We see Mobil's expansion in Milwaukee as another sign of the company's continued commitment to our community. We're encouraged that Mobil is strengthening its business in the area to meet the needs of the Metropolitan Milwaukee area."
