SEAGULL ENERGY CORPORATION ELECTS JOHN W. ELIAS EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT

 HOUSTON, March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- The board of directors of Seagull Energy Corporation (NYSE: SGO) today elected John W. Elias to the newly created position of executive vice president of the corporation.
 Elias, 52, will join Seagull on April 1, 1993. He also will be a nominee for a position on the board of directors at the company's annual meeting in Houston on May 11, 1993.
 He comes to Seagull from Amoco Production Company, where he served it and parent Amoco Corporation in a variety of increasingly responsible operational and management positions over a period of 30 years. Most recently, he was group vice president of Worldwide Natural Gas for Amoco Production.
 Elias holds a geology degree from the University of Oklahoma and is a graduate of the Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School. He serves on the Advisory Boards of the University of Oklahoma Starkey Energy Center, Dedman College at Southern Methodist University and the Earth Sciences Research Institute of the University of South Carolina. He also is a member of numerous industry organizations.
 "John's skills and experience will obviously be extremely valuable to Seagull," noted Chairman Barry J. Galt. "We are very fortunate that he has consented to join us. Our rapid growth over the past several years has been concentrated in the areas he will oversee."
 In the new position, Elias will supervise Seagull's exploration and production and pipeline operations, which are concentrated in the southwestern United States. In 1993, these two business segments are expected to provide more than 80 percent of the company's operating profit before non-cash depreciation, depletion and amortization charges.
 In addition to its exploration and production and pipeline operations, Houston-based Seagull is engaged in natural gas transmission and distribution in the Anchorage, Alaska area.
