 PETER I. BIJUR ELECTED SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT OF TEXACO;
 TEXACO EUROPE PRESIDENT TO TAKE ON ADDITIONAL RESPONSIBILITIES
 WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Texaco Inc.'s (NYSE: TX) board of directors has elected Peter I. Bijur a senior vice president of the company, effective May 1. The announcement was made today by Texaco Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer James W. Kinnear.
 Bijur, a Texaco Inc. vice president since 1983, will continue to serve as president of Texaco Europe, while assuming oversight responsibilities for the company's Latin America/West Africa (LA/WA) division, based in Coral Gables, Fla., and for two of Texaco's key service units: the information technology department (ITD) and the corporate services department.
 In making the announcement, Kinnear said: "Peter Bijur's leadership, broad operating experience and keen international perspective, which have proven to be a strong asset to our European division, will also provide continuity and continued strength to our operations in Latin America and West Africa."
 Texaco Europe is responsible for directing the exploration and production, manufacturing, trading and supply, and marketing operations encompassing 22 countries in Europe, as well as activities in the former Soviet Union.
 The LA/WA division is responsible for all petroleum exploration, production, refining and marketing activities in Central America, the Caribbean, South America and West Africa.
 The company's ITD group is responsible for providing computing, communications and information system services worldwide. Corporate services provides worldwide real estate and property management, as well as directs the company's staff support services and internal administrative systems.
 Bijur, 49, joined Texaco's domestic marketing operations in New York City in 1966, after he earned a master of business administration degree in marketing from Columbia University.
 Also an alumnus of the University of Pittsburgh, 1964, Bijur held a series of marketing assignments before being named Manager of the Buffalo, N.Y., sales district in 1971.
 In 1973 he was named Assistant to Management on the staff of the senior vice president of public affairs, and three years later he was appointed staff coordinator in Texaco's strategic planning function. After a two-year assignment as assistant to the executive vice president, Bijur was appointed manager of Texaco U.S.A.'s manufacturing and marketing operations in the Rocky Mountain Area.
 Bijur was appointed Assistant to the chairman of the board in 1981, and in the following year he was elected a director of Texaco Canada Inc. and a director and senior vice president of Texaco Trinidad Inc. In 1983 he was elected a vice president of Texaco Inc., and in 1984 became responsible for worldwide purchases and sales of crude oil and petroleum products as president of Texaco Oil Trading & Supply Company. Later that year he assumed new responsibilities as vice president - special projects in Texaco's executive department, supervising the sale of selected assets in connection with Texaco's major restructuring. The Texaco Canada board of directors appointed Bijur to serve as president and chief executive officer of that company in 1987, and he served in that capacity until Texaco Canada Inc. was sold in 1989.
 Bijur was then appointed chairman of London-based Texaco Limited, with responsibility for the Texaco group of companies conducting exploration, production, manufacturing and marketing operations in the United Kingdom. In 1990 he assumed the additional responsibilities as president of Texaco Europe. That division, through the United Kingdom and other European subsidiaries, oversees upstream and downstream operations across the continent. Bijur relinquished the position of chairman of Texaco Limited in 1991 and returned to Texaco's Harrison, N.Y., offices, continuing as Texaco Europe president.
 As well as serving as director of numerous Texaco Europe subsidiaries, Bijur serves on the board of overseers of the College of Arts and Science of the University of Pittsburgh, and is a fellow both of the Institute of Petroleum and of the Royal Society of Arts in London. He is a former board member of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
