TOSCO APPOINTS DWIGHT L. WIGGINS PRESIDENT OF BAYWAY

 STAMFORD, Conn., Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Tosco Corporation (NYSE: TOS) today announced that Mr. Dwight L. Wiggins has been chosen to be president of Bayway Refining Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tosco. Bayway Refining Company will own and operate the Bayway Refinery located in Linden, New Jersey, which is being acquired from Exxon Company, U.S.A.
 Mr. Thomas D. O'Malley, Tosco's Chairman and CEO said, "We're very pleased to have been able to retain a person of Dwight Wiggins' caliber to run this new major acquisition. He has the background, technical skills, and more importantly, the experience and proven management ability to successfully lead this major industrial unit of our company."
 Mr. Wiggins, an advanced degree engineering graduate of Auburn University, has over 25 years experience in the petroleum industry, 12 years of them managing refineries. He is leaving an executive position with Exxon USA to join Tosco and had previously managed the Bayway Refinery, as well as Exxon's Benecia Refinery in the San Francisco Bay area. His new position includes the responsibility for operation of the largest refinery on the East Coast of the United States.
 Tosco Corporation, presently a large independent refiner and wholesale marketer of petroleum products on the West Coast of the United States and internationally, would, with the completion of the acquisition of Bayway, become the second largest independent refiner in the United States. Tosco is also one of the largest U.S. manufacturers and international wholesale distributors of phosphate-based fertilizer products.
