 MOBIL SAUDI REFINERY PRODUCING MTBE FOR OXYGENATING GASOLINE
 FAIRFAX, Va., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobil Corporation (NYSE: MOB) confirmed today that a 2,000-barrels-per-day unit producing methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) was started up on schedule July 6 at Mobil Corporation's joint-venture refinery in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia.
 The export-fuels refinery at Yanbu, known as Pemref, has a crude oil capacity exceeding 300,000 barrels daily, and the MTBE unit enhances its capacity to produce oxygenated and reformulated gasolines. Mobil and the Saudi Arabian Marketing & Refining Company, known as Samarec, each holds a 50-percent share in the refinery's production, including MTBE output.
 "As demand for oxygenated gasoline grows, our MTBE production will become increasingly important," said Bill Harrell, chief executive officer for the Pemref refinery.
 Mobil's vice president for Middle East and Marine Transportation, W. R. Walsh, said, "Pemref's MTBE capacity strengthens Mobil's ability to respond to customer needs. It also keeps this Pemref facility where we like to see it, on the leading edge of refinery technology."
 Mobil uses its share of Pemref's production to supply premium products to markets throughout the world.
