MOBIL REFINERY TAKES TOP AWARD FOR CALIFORNIA SAFETY

 MOBIL REFINERY TAKES TOP AWARD FOR CALIFORNIA SAFETY
 FAIRFAX, Va., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- A Mobil Corp. (NYSE: MOB)


refinery in Torrance, Calif., won first place for having the best 1991 safety performance among California manufacturing facilities working more than one million man-hours per year, according to the Safety Center, California's largest chapter of the National Safety Council.
 Ten companies in the million-man-hour category competed for the prize, the Safety Center's 1992 First Place Occupational Safety Award. Mobil's refinery also took the Safety Center's top award for the most improved occupational safety record among facilities of its size.
 The Torrance Refinery is situated in the South Bay area, midway between the cities of Los Angeles and Long Beach, Calif.
 Refinery Manager Joel Maness said at the awards ceremony in the state capital at Sacramento: "Everyone at the refinery has been working hard to improve our safety performance, and the recognition that comes with this top award honors every member of our Torrance team."
 Mobil said the National Petroleum Refiners Association had conferred two more awards for safety performance on the Torrance Refinery in June. NPRA's Gold Award was for significant reduction in recordable worker injuries, and Torrance won its Safety Achievement Award for working more than 1.3 million consecutive hours without a lost-workday injury.
 Mobil's Torrance Refinery has a distillation capacity of 123,000 barrels per day of crude oil and processes one of the heaviest crude slates in the world. It supplies motor gasoline and distillates to Mobil markets in both lower California and Arizona.
 The Safety Center has been recognizing businesses, industries, and individual safety professionals in California for outstanding performance since 1934. Its awards program singles out persons and companies that have made their work environments and communities safer places to work or play. Every award winner has accident rates lower than the national average.
