 UNOCAL APPOINTS GARY W. SPROULE
 SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, ADMINISTRATION AND PLANNING
 LOS ANGELES, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Unocal Corporation (NYSE: UCL) today announced the appointment of Gary W. Sproule, as senior vice president, Administration and Planning, by the company's board of directors.
 Sproule, 41, succeeds Claude S. Brinegar, 65, who retires as executive vice president April 30. Brinegar will continue as a non-employee member of the board of directors and vice chairman of the board.
 Sproule has been vice president, budgets, planning and economics since 1988. He joined Unocal in 1972 and held various positions in the company's retail organization in Minneapolis and Detroit before joining the Refining and Marketing Division planning department in 1978 and the corporate planning group in 1980. He served as an economist in the company's International Oil and Gas Division, and was appointed executive representative at Unocal's New York City office in 1982. He was named assistant treasurer in 1986.
 He holds a bachelor's degree in political science from the University of Wisconsin and a master's degree in finance from Eastern Michigan University.
 In his new position, Sproule will continue to manage the corporate budgets, planning and economics group. He will also oversee corporate communications, and the company's Washington, D.C., office.
 Brinegar joined the company 1953 as an economic analyst. He held increasingly responsible positions in economics and corporate planning, and in 1965 he oversaw the merger of Union Oil Company and Pure Oil and then reorganized the company's refining and marketing operations.
 From 1973 to 1975, Brinegar served as the nation's third Secretary of Transportation. In 1985, Brinegar chaired the command group that developed Unocal's successful defense against a hostile takeover attempt.
 He was named executive vice president in 1985 and added the responsibilities of chief financial officer in 1986, leading Unocal's financial restructuring. He was elected vice chairman of the board in 1989.
