PHILLIPS PETROLEUM RATED TOPS IN COMMUNICATIONS

 RIDGEWOOD, N.J., Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Phillips Petroleum Co. of Bartlesville, Okla., was rated to have the best overall communications department in a survey of energy reporters that appears in the current issue of the TJFR Business News Reporter, the twice-monthly newsletter that tracks the nation's business and financial media. When asked to rank eight major oil companies on the effectiveness of their media relations departments, the 19 print journalists who participated in the survey and who cover the domestic oil best selected Phillips first and Exxon Corp. last.
 According to the reporters, who represented such publications as the New York Times, Fortune, Houston Post, Denver Post, Wall Street Journal, and Los Angeles Times, among others, Phillips Petroleum was singled out because its communications department was proactive and likely to make its executives available even when news was bad. Communications executives at Phillips credit the company's chairman and chief executive, C.J. "Pete" Silas, for encouraging an open atmosphere and viewing the news media as the most effective way to keep the public informed on what is happening at the publicly held company.
 The report, which was prepared by senior reporter Thomas K. Grose, is the first in a periodic series of report cards that will appear in the newsletter in the coming year. The PR report cards will focus on specific industries and how media departments of different companies within those industries are rated by the media.
