 ANADARKO AND PARTNERS ANNOUNCES GAS DISCOVERY OFFSHORE
 HOUSTON, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: APC) and its partners today announced a natural gas discovery offshore in the Gulf of Mexico on South Marsh Island Block 192. The discovery well, originally drilled in late 1991, encountered 65 feet of net gas pay in two sands between 12,945 feet and 13,037 feet. The well was suspended in December 1991 pending future development plans for the block.
 Recently, the Department of Interior's Minerals Management Service awarded the adjoining block -- South Marsh Island Block 193 -- to Anadarko and its partners, who bid $1,271,000 for the block at OCS Sale No. 139 in May 1992. Plans for the block include a delineation well to be drilled in the near future.
 Partners in the venture each own approximately 33 percent working interest and include: the operator, Amerada Hess Corporation (NYSE: AHC), Marathon Oil Company and Anadarko.
