KERR-McGEE WINS 'TAKE PRIDE IN AMERICA' AWARD

 KERR-McGEE WINS 'TAKE PRIDE IN AMERICA' AWARD
 OKLAHOMA CITY, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Department of the


Interior has named Kerr-McGee Corp. (NYSE: KMG) as a national winner in the "Take Pride in America" program. A U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service leader nominated BeachSweep '91 cleanup efforts by Exploration and Production employees in the Gulf of Mexico Region for the honor.
 Kerr-McGee has been involved in the BeachSweep litter control program since 1987. The company has vast oil and gas production facilities near Breton National Wildlife Refuge in the Gulf. On Sept. 14 and 21, 1991, volunteers worked 331 hours and cleared eight miles of shoreline in the refuge. The 189 volunteers bagged about 3,427 pounds of litter and debris.
 Of the litter and debris found, 75 percent was monofilament line, six-pack rings, string, wire, nets, ropes and plastic bags. Due to cleanup efforts, nesting sea birds, endangered eastern brown pelicans and sea turtles (including the endangered loggerhead) have less chance of encountering this hazardous garbage.
 Kerr-McGee will receive the "Take Pride in America" award July 21, at Constitution Hall in Washington.
