MOBIL CHEMICAL CO. COMMENTS ON EPA-BAKERSFIELD SETTLEMENT

 MOBIL CHEMICAL CO. COMMENTS ON EPA-BAKERSFIELD SETTLEMENT
 FAIRFAX, Va., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobil Chemical Co. commented today on its settlement with EPA's Region 9 of a case which has been pending more than five years and under investigation for seven:
 "Mobil did not commit any environmental violation, and the Consent Decree does not make any such determination. We did reach agreement to settle the lawsuit which alleges that during the early 1980s, Mobil exceeded air emissions under a rule of the Kern County Air Pollution Control District in California. A Mobil payment of $950,000 resolves all disputes. We did not exceed the rules emission limits, but for seven years we've been trying to prove it -- with no end in sight. It's just too expensive. Mobil simply had to make a business decision to cut its losses."
 The case arose out of Mobil Chemical Co.'s attempts to develop innovative air pollution control technology which the Kern County Air Pollution Control District encouraged. Several years after Mobil's efforts were commenced, EPA, based upon an interpretation of the local rule which it later admitted was erroneous, filed the action.
