MOBIL NORTH SEA LIMITED STARTS PRODUCING NEW NATURAL GAS RESERVES

 FAIRFAX, Va., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobil Corporation (NYSE: MOB) announced today that its exploration and producing affiliate in the United Kingdom, Mobil North Sea Limited ("MNSL"), has begun producing natural gas from the Camelot B platform in the North Sea's southern gas basin off the east coast of England.
 The unmanned, 1,156-ton remote-controlled platform is producing 25 million standard cubic feet of natural gas per day from a single well. The Camelot B reservoir's recoverable reserves are estimated to be 33 billion cubic feet of natural gas.
 Camelot B, 100 percent-owned by MNSL, was discovered in 1989. It is located on block 53/2 about four miles from MNSL's Camelot field platform.
 The natural gas is piped six miles to the nearby Leman gas field, and then 30 miles to shore where it is processed and enters the national grid for delivery to British Gas.
 Last November, MNSL started producing an average of 21 million standard cubic feet of natural gas per day from the Tristan field, also located in the Southern gas basin off the east coast. Later this year, production is expected to begin from the Lancelot and Guinevere fields, providing Mobil with an additional 56 million standard cubic feet of gas per day on average. Mobil is one of the largest independent suppliers of natural gas to industry in the United Kingdom.
