CHEVRON TO CLOSE COVINGTON, KY., TERMINAL

 SAN FRANCISCO, May 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Chevron U.S.A. Products Company today announced the closing of its light oil products storage terminal located in Covington, Ky.
 The terminal, located in northern Kentucky on the Ohio River approximately seven miles south of Cincinnati, Ohio, supplies gasoline and diesel fuel to dealers, jobbers and commercial customers located within a 50-mile radius of the terminal. The Covington terminal also supplies jet fuel to the Greater Cincinnati International Airport. Current inventories will meet customer needs until product exchange arrangements can be completed within the next few weeks.
 "A recently completed pipeline provides for direct service to the airport, minimizing the need for Chevron's deliveries," said Bill Frye, manager of Chevron's two terminals in eastern Kentucky. "The decision to close this terminal is based on economics," he said and pointed out that deliveries to the Greater Cincinnati International Airport represented about half of Chevron's business at the Covington terminal.
 "Our Chevron customers which are currently supplied through the Covington terminal will continue to be supplied with Chevron products through local exchange arrangements," said Mike Lawrence, general manager for Chevron's Southern Region.
 The Covington terminal, constructed in 1959, occupies approximately 40 acres. It has 12 storage tanks with a combined capacity of approximately 187,000 barrels, and a shallow-draft loading dock on the Ohio River.
 Chevron (NYSE: CHV) expects to mothball the terminal by August 1, 1993.
