 MOBIL UNIT LOCATES NEW STRUCTURE IN OLD LOUISIANA FIELD;


DISCOVERY WELL TESTS 15.4 MMCFD OF GAS, 1,044 BD OF CONDENSATE
 FAIRFAX, Va., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobil Exploration & Producing U.S. Inc. (MEPUS), a unit of Mobil Corp. (NYSE: MOB), announced today its K.P. Romero No. 1 well in the Kaplan Field of Vermilion Parish, Louisiana, flowed at a rate of 15.4 million cubic feet of natural gas and 1,044 barrels of condensate a day during recent tests.
 The well, located 25 miles southwest of Lafayette, tested the First Camerina Sand formation from perforations between 16,614 feet and 16,680 feet with a flowing tubing pressure of 9,260 pounds per square inch on a 15/64-inch choke. It encountered 120 feet of net gas pay in four sand formations, including 88 feet of net pay in the First Camerina.
 Mobil is the operator with a 53.7 percent working interest in the well. Freeport-McMoRan Oil & Gas Company and partners have a 46.3 percent interest.
 The Kaplan Field has been in production since 1976 but the Romero No. 1 well discovery in a new fault block is the result of a 1989 3-D seismic survey that provided a much more detailed understanding of the subsurface geological make-up of the field.
