SCANA SUBSIDIARY REACHES SETTLEMENT WITH WESTINGHOUSE

 COLUMBIA, S.C., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (SCE&G), the principal subsidiary of SCANA Corporation (NYSE: SCG), today reported that it has reached a settlement with Westinghouse Electric Corporation (NYSE: WX) resolving a dispute involving steam generators provided by Westinghouse to SCE&G's V.C. Summer Nuclear Station.
 Terms of the settlement were not disclosed. SCE&G had filed an action in May 1990 against Westinghouse in the U.S. District Court for South Carolina seeking compensation for damages to the Summer Station.
 In commenting on the settlement, Bruce Kenyon, president and chief operating officer of SCE&G, said: "We are pleased to have this nearly four-year dispute resolved. The settlement is in the best interest of all parties and avoids what would have been a costly and uncertain trial. In addition, our electric customers will benefit as costs for Summer Station operations will be reduced."
 SCE&G operates the 885-MW electric generating facility. The company previously announced that it plans to replace the plant's three steam generators in the fourth quarter of 1994, during a scheduled refueling.
 SCE&G is a regulated public utility engaged primarily in the generation, transmission, distribution and sale of electricity and in the purchase, distribution and sale at retail of natural gas in South Carolina.
