McDERMOTT INTERNATIONAL ELECTS NEW DIRECTORS.

NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 12, 1997--Roger E. Tetrault, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, announced that the board of directors of McDermott International, Inc. (NYSE:MDR) has elected two new members. The new members are Admiral Bruce DeMars, who is retired from the U.S. Navy, and Robert L. Howard, a retired executive of Shell Oil Company.

DeMars, 62, retired from the Navy in 1996 after 44 years of service. For eight years prior to his retirement, he was director, Naval Nuclear Propulsion, a joint program of the Department of the Navy and the Department of Energy. During his tenure in this position, he directed the transition of the program to the post-cold war period, including the disposal of nuclear ships and submarines, the inactivation of naval nuclear shipyards and land-based reactors sites, the completion of the Seawolf submarine development program, and development of the propulsion plant for the next generation of submarines.

A 1957 graduate of the Naval Academy, DeMars had extensive submarine service during his Navy career and served as the Chief of Naval Operations' principal assistant for submarine matters from 1983 to 1988. He also saw duty as Commander, U.S. Naval Forces, Marianas; Commander in Chief Pacific Representative for Guam and the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands; and head of the Atlantic Fleet Nuclear Propulsion Examining Board.

He is also a member of the boards of the Unicom/Commonwealth Edison Corporation and Draper Laboratories.

Howard, 60, retired from Shell Oil Company as vice president, Domestic Operations, Exploration and Production, in 1995 after 36 years with the company. He was also president, Shell Offshore, a position he had held since 1985, and president, Shell Western. Shell Offshore is a New Orleans-based exploration and production subsidiary of Shell Oil Company with operations in the Gulf of Mexico. Shell Western is primarily a land-based oil and gas company, whose territory includes Louisiana, Mississippi, and areas throughout the western United States and Alaska.

Howard joined Shell in 1959 after graduating from Rice University, and worked in Production Department engineering in several regional offices before being named general manager, Exploration and Production, Midcontinent Division, in 1980. In 1983, he was named general manager, Exploration and Production, Rocky Mountain Division and Alaska Division. He held that position until 1985, when he moved to Shell Offshore.

Howard is also a member of the boards of Camco International, Inc., Southwestern Energy Company, and United Meridian Corp.
