POPE & TALBOT ANNOUNCES PULP MILL PROJECT AT HALSEY, OREGON

 PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Pope & Talbot Inc. (NYSE: POP) today announced a $34 million capital project for its market pulp mill at Halsey, Ore. The project, which is scheduled to be completed by year end, will include $30 million for a pulp dryer and $4 million for upgrading pulp bleaching systems at the mill.
 The project will allow Halsey to compete economically in worldwide pulp markets, including capability for producing fluff pulp. It will also improve the mill's ability to produce pulp from a variety of wood fiber types. Work on the project is scheduled to begin immediately.
 The Halsey mill was designed to economically utilize a variety of fiber types as raw material for its pulp. The pulp dryer will increase the mill's ability to serve customers with multiple needs for pulp strength and product characteristics. The bleach plant improvements will permit the mill to produce elemental chlorine-free pulp.
 The new dryer will allow various degrees of water removal, depending on freight considerations and customer demands for strength. By capitalizing on process flexibility and various fiber types available in the Northwest, the mill will be able to produce specialty pulps for shipment anywhere in the world.
 This project and the oxygen-delignification project now underway represent the final steps in a series of investments at Halsey which have been designed to allow the mill to compete effectively in world markets while satisfying Oregon environmental regulations, which are among the most stringent in the United States.
 Pope & Talbot Inc. is a publicly held, Portland-based paper, pulp and wood products company traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Pope & Talbot was founded in 1849 and has operations throughout the United State and in Canada.
