       UXC DISCOVERS GAS ON BRAZOS BLOCK A-105 OFFSHORE TEXAS
    LOS ANGELES, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Unocal Exploration Corp. (UXC) (NYSE: UXC) has made a significant new field natural gas discovery on Brazos block A-105 in the Gulf of Mexico, about 90 miles due east of Corpus Christi, offshore Texas.
    This successful exploration well, OCS-G 1757 No. 6, tested at a rate of 16.2 million cubic feet of gas and 18 barrels of condensate per day through a 21/64-inch choke.  Located in 190 feet of water, the well was tested in a middle Miocene zone.
    "This is a significant discovery which we expect to have on production by late fall of 1992," said L. Carl Hebert, vice president for the Texas/Southeastern region.  While additional development wells will be required, plans are already under way to install a platform for the No. 6 well.  Production will be processed at existing facilities on UXC's A Platform on Block A-105, two miles northwest of the No. 6 well.
    UXC holds a 56.25 percent working interest in the well.  Its working interest owners are The Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. (31.25 percent interest) and Hardy Oil & Gas USA Inc. (12.50 percent interest).
    UXC, a Delaware corporation, holds substantially all of Unocal's oil and gas exploration, development and production assets in and near the Gulf of Mexico.
