 EXECUTIVE TO TAKE ON WIDER RESPONSIBILITIES
 WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Texaco Inc.'s (NYSE: TX) board of directors has elected C. Robert Black a senior vice president, effective May 1. The announcement was made today by Texaco Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer James W. Kinnear.
 Black, a corporate vice president since 1983, will be based at the company's Harrison, N.Y., executive offices, to which he will relocate. Black, currently located at the company's Latin America/West Africa's (LA/WA) Coral Gables, Fla., offices, will relinquish his assignment as President of that division.
 In his new role, Black will oversee a number of Texaco units, including: the Middle East/Far East Division (ME/FE); Texaco Fuel and Marine Marketing (TFAMM); International Aviation Sales; and the Marine Department.
 In making the announcement, Kinnear said: "Bob Black's leadership of the Texaco Latin America/West Africa Division has been strong and incisive. His success and experience in executing Texaco's business goals throughout the LA/WA region will serve him well in the new spread of responsibilities he is assuming."
 Texaco's ME/FE Division is responsible for the exploration and production of oil and gas in the Middle East and the Pacific Rim, including Indonesia, Australia and China.
 The TFAMM department is responsible for the marketing of fuel oils and lubricants worldwide; the International Aviation and Sales Department operates worldwide in soliciting and servicing the aviation fuel requirements of domestic and international carriers as well as the general aviation market; while Texaco's Marine Department is responsible for providing safe, efficient and cost-effective ocean and inland water transportation for the company's operations.
 Black, 56, was graduated from Texas Tech University with a bachelor of science degree in petroleum engineering in 1958. Upon graduation, he joined Texaco's producing department as a field engineer in Monument, N.M. Serving in various engineering assignments in Midland, Texas, until the mid-1960s, he was named a district petroleum engineer in Wichita Falls, Texas, in 1966.
 He was named senior petroleum engineer in Houston in 1967 and moved on to New Orleans in 1968 as assistant to the division gas superintendent.
 Black was appointed assistant to the general manager in charge of Texaco's New York-based supply and distribution function in 1969; coordinator in the Crude Oil Division (International) in 1970; and coordinator - Crude Oil in 1971. He was appointed assistant to the vice president of the Producing Department - Eastern Hemisphere in 1974, and manager - Middle East Operations in the same department in 1976.
 Black was transferred to London in 1977, where he served as president and general manager of Texaco Iran Limited. Two years later, he was placed in charge of oil trading activities as general manager. In 1980 he was appointed vice president of Texaco Oil Trading Company, relocating to the Harrison executive offices, and in 1981 he was named vice president - trading of Texaco Oil Trading & Supply Company, and president of Texaco International Trader Inc., when the two companies were merged.
 In 1983 Black was elected a vice president of Texaco Inc. In that same year, he was also appointed senior vice president of Texaco's ME/FE Division, and in 1984 he was named president of that division, which oversees Texaco's producing interests in those geographic areas.
 Black was named President of Texaco LA/WA in 1987. The Coral Gables division is responsible for all petroleum exploration, producing, refining and marketing activities in Central America, the Caribbean, South America and West Africa.
 In addition to serving on the boards of directors of numerous Texaco subsidiaries, Black has served on the board of trustees of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, the New World Symphony, the Florida Inter- American Scholarship Foundation and the University of Miami. He also has served as a director of the Miami Opera, the Zoological Society of Florida and of the Council of the Americas.
