PGW, SUN SETTLE DISPUTE; ENVIRONMENTAL CLEANUP TO BEGIN AT SOUTH PHILADELPHIA PLANTS

 PHILADELPHIA, March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Philadelphia Gas Works (PGW) and Sun Company, Inc., today announced they have reached settlement of a dispute involving environmental clean-up at the PGW Passyunk Plant and Sun's adjacent refinery, formerly owned by ARCO.
 PGW sued Sun more than a year ago, alleging that hydrocarbon contamination from the Sun Refinery had over the years migrated onto the PGW property.
 Under the settlement, Sun will pay PGW $1.7 million, representing reimbursement of roughly half the amount spent so far by PGW in addressing hydrocarbon contamination of the ground along its western boundary and a small strip of land currently owned by Sun. Future remediation costs will be shared equally by Sun and PGW.
 In addition, Sun will take aggressive steps to stop potential underground migration of oil from the northern boundary of its refinery to the PGW property.
 Both Sun and PGW are committed to the proper remediation of these problems and view this settlement as a proactive approach to their resolution.
