UNOCAL GRANTED COURT ORDER BLOCKING EPA SHUTDOWN OF CLEAN FUELS PROJECT

 LOS ANGELES, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Unocal Corp. (NYSE: UCL) today said a federal court has granted the company's request to block a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) order that would have shut down pre-construction work on a major clean fuels project at Unocal's Los Angeles Refinery.
 "We are very pleased with the decision," said Roger C. Beach, Unocal president and chief operating officer. "Now we can keep moving ahead so we are ready to begin construction once we have received the permit to construct from the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD)."
 Unocal had asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco to stay an EPA order for Unocal to stop pre-construction work on its reformulated gasolines project at the Carson and Wilmington sections of Unocal's Los Angeles Refinery. The court granted Unocal's request late Tuesday, blocking the EPA order indefinitely.
 "Our work is in full compliance with the rules and regulations of SCAQMD, which is the agency primarily responsible for issuing permits and overseeing such projects," Beach said.
 Unocal's 125,000-barrel per day Los Angeles Refinery is located in two sections -- one in Carson and the other in Wilmington.
