TEXACO AND STAR ENTERPRISE PROVIDE RELIEF AND ASSISTANCE TO SOUTH FLORIDA AND LOUISIANA

 TEXACO AND STAR ENTERPRISE PROVIDE RELIEF AND ASSISTANCE TO
 SOUTH FLORIDA AND LOUISIANA
 WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., and HOUSTON, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Texaco, Inc. (NYSE: TX) and Star Enterprise today announced donations totalling more than $300,000 to aid Hurricane Andrew victims in South Florida and Louisiana.
 In Florida, the companies are donating a combined $100,000 to the Hurricane Andrew Disaster Relief Trust Fund organized by Barnett Bank, which is designated for use by the American Red Cross for hurricane relief. This is a dollar-for-dollar matching fund, so the Texaco and Star Enterprise donation will be matched by a $100,000 contribution from Barnett Bank.
 Texaco is donating an additional $50,000 to the Florida State Hurricane Relief Fund, created by Governor Lawton Chiles to aid hurricane victims. Immediately following the hurricane, the Star Enterprise Orlando Region Community Involvement Council also donated $5,000 directly to the Miami Red Cross.
 In Louisiana, Texaco and the Texaco Foundation have pledged $100,000 to American Red Cross efforts there. Texaco is donating an additional $50,000 to the State of Louisiana Rural Development Fund/Hurricane Andrew Relief, designated by Governor Edwin Edwards to assist victims in that state.
 In addition to donating financial aid, Texaco and Star Enterprise began working in the wake of the hurricane to get much-needed basic supplies to communities throughout the devastated areas.
 For example, Star has donated more than 43,000 gallons of Texaco gasoline and diesel fuel to the City of Miami Central Emergency Staging Area for use by Fire/Rescue, Police, Florida Highway Patrol, National Guard, and other Emergency vehicles.
 Texaco and Star Enterprise facilities have also provided:
 -- Generators loaned by Texaco Lubricants Company and 4,500
 gallons of water sent by Star's Orlando Region to South
 Florida from Charleston, S.C.;
 -- A brand-new tanker truck which carried 8,500 gallons of
 potable water to provide showers to more than 400 residents
 in South Florida and to fill the National Guard water
 buffaloes with drinking water;
 -- Two semi-trailer loads of food, clothing and supplies from
 Houston, Port Arthur and Port Neches, Texas, to hurricane
 victims in Louisiana and South Florida;
 -- Two truck loads of food and supplies to South Florida from
 Orlando;
 -- An 18-wheel tractor trailer filled with food and supplies
 loaded by Texaco employees in New Orleans for relief to
 hurricane victims in the Morgan City area;
 -- Three semi-truck loads of food and supplies for South
 Florida victims donated by employees in Atlanta.
 In addition, although many Texaco-branded outlets in South Florida were damaged by Hurricane Andrew, emergency maintenance crews were sent immediately to the disaster area and were able to restore service at 39 Texaco-branded outlets in order to satisfy the mounting consumer demand for gasoline and diesel fuel.
 Beyond the companies' contributions to aid the devastated communities in South Florida and Louisiana, Texaco employees have set up a relief fund for employees, retirees and expatriates whose homes suffered severe damage or were completely destroyed by Hurricane Andrew.
