CHINESE COMPANIES LICENSE MOBIL/BADGER PETROCHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY

 FAIRFAX, Va., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobil Corporation (NYSE: MOB) said today that three Chinese petrochemical plants have licensed the Mobil/Badger technology to produce ethylbenzene, a precursor to styrene and polystyrene. They are the first ethylbenzene licenses Mobil has granted in China.
 The Mobil/Badger ethylbenzene process, jointly developed by Mobil Research and Development Corporation and the Badger Company of Cambridge, Mass., was commercialized in 1980. This process technology is used in over 90 percent of the ethylbenzene capacity licensed since 1980. Ethylbenzene is a necessary step in the production of styrene, which is used to make polystyrene.
 The China Petrochemical International Company (Sinopec) licensed the ethylbenzene process technology for use in its Daqing refining and petrochemical complex in Heilongjiang Province. The process also will be used in Sinopec's new ethylbenzene/styrene plant in Guangzhou in Guangdong Province by Guangzhou Petrochemical Company.
 The China National Technical Import and Export Corporation licensed the process for use by Panjin Natural Gas Chemical plant in Panjin City, Liaoning Province.
 The three facilities are the 23rd, 24th and 25th licensees worldwide of this technology.
