 FAIRFAX, Va., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobil Corporation (NYSE: MOB) announced today its affiliate, Mobil Oil Hong Kong (MOHK), has opened a major new petroleum products terminal on Tsing Yi Island, substantially increasing the affiliate's storage and lube-blending capacities.
 Located on a 24-acre site at the southwestern tip of the island, the new terminal complex includes three modern, deep water piers, a fully automated oil-blending and packaging plant, a high-rise warehouse and over 90 tanks for fuels, lubricants, chemical solvents and liquefied petroleum gas. The new facilities will increase lube-blending capacity by 50 percent and boost the affiliate's storage capacity by 60 percent to 1.6 million barrels.
 The terminal incorporates the latest in automation and computer- integrated manufacturing technology, and includes special features to enhance operational and environmental safety.
 "This state-of-the-art facility significantly increases our ability to efficiently supply a wide range of top-quality products for Hong Kong and neighboring markets," said Thomas C. DeLoach, executive vice president, International Marketing & Refining, during the terminal dedication ceremony today. "Its opening marks a very important step forward for Mobil's operations in the Pacific Rim region as a whole.
 "We are extremely proud that during the four years of terminal construction, MOHK set a Hong Kong industrial construction safety record of 5.2 million manhours without a lost-time injury," DeLoach said.
 MOHK is one of the area's leading marketers. It employs about 350 people in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and Macau.
