 HELLESPONT STEAMSHIP CORPORATION COMMITS
 TO NATIONAL RESPONSE CORPORATION
 NEW YORK, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Response Corporation (NRC) announced today that the Hellespont Steamship Corporation, based in Piraeus, Greece, had agreed in principle to identify NRC for marine spill response coverage in the Gulf of Mexico and the East Coast of the United States.
 Hellespont, represented in London by Papachristidis Ltd., operates a fleet of 18 tankers calling primarily at U.S. Gulf ports. It is the first foreign tanker group to commit to the NRC system.
 Captain Malcolm MacKenzie, safety director for Hellespont, cited the support his organization has received from NRC, "The National Response Corporation has been very responsive to the special needs and demands of foreign vessel owners and has continually provided practical guidance in coming to terms with the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90). We are pleased to be the initial foreign subscriber to NRC's services."
 Mark Miller, president of NRC, stressed the importance of the company's relationship with Hellespont, "By committing to the NRC network, Hellespont has placed a strong vote of confidence in our general strategy and overall capabilities. We have worked hard to attract foreign shipowners to NRC, and I think you are beginning to see the results of that effort."
 Miller mentioned that he and Chairman Charles Fabrikant were planning to visit Europe at the beginning of September and would be making presentations to the Greek, British, Norwegian and Swedish Shipowner groups.
 NRC is a national marine spill response organization offering oil companies, refiners, terminals and vessel owners operating in the U.S. Gulf and East Coast assistance in meeting the response resource requirements of the OPA 90 and various state oil spill laws through a practical, cost effective approach emphasizing the utilization of existing resources.
