DIAMOND SHAMROCK RECEIVES TWO INDUSTRY QUALITY AWARDS

 HOUSTON, Oct. 5, 1993 /PRNewswire/ -- Diamond Shamrock (NYSE: DRM) has earned two quality awards from two industry peers. Both Exxon Chemical Company and Lyondell Petrochemical Company recently recognized Diamond Shamrock's Mont Belvieu operations and the Houston-based Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) and Hydrocarbon Storage and Distribution divisions for providing outstanding customer service.
 Exxon recently presented Diamond Shamrock with a 1993 Quality Partnership Award for outstanding service. Diamond Shamrock is the only supplier in the category of hydrocarbon storage and feedstock supply to ever be considered by Exxon for the award. The company was one of three chosen to receive the award from Exxon's supplier base of more than 2,000.
 Diamond Shamrock also received a 1992 Quality Supplier Award for outstanding customer service from Lyondell. Identifying Diamond Shamrock as one of its "Partners in Quality," Lyondell said that primary considerations in giving the award were the company's ability to deliver quality, on-spec products, the open lines of communication, and the availability of all personnel in the supply chain -- including the company's traders, distribution personnel, schedulers, and operators.
 "Diamond Shamrock is pleased to be recognized by its peers," said Phil Winter, Diamond Shamrock sales manager of hydrocarbon storage. "These two awards reflect our employees' commitment to providing excellent customer service in all aspects of our operations."
 Diamond Shamrock operates the world's largest commercial underground storage facility at Mont Belvieu. The facility is one of the key feedstock supply points for both Exxon and Lyondell's Houston operations.
 Diamond Shamrock, Inc., with annual sales of $2.6 billion, is a regional refiner and marketer of petroleum products. The San Antonio- based corporation has two Texas refineries with a throughput capacity of 195,000 barrels per day, markets gasoline through approximately 2,000 branded outlets, manufactures and markets petrochemicals, and stores and markets natural gas liquids.
