Municipalities to Receive Fuel Coupons for Gasoline, Kerosene or Diesel

TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The ExxonMobil Japan Group will donate one million liters of fuel to aid recovery efforts in areas hardest hit by the earthquake and tsunami in March.

Coupons for gasoline, kerosene or diesel will be provided to municipal authorities in the Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures, who will distribute them according to local priorities. Expected recipients of the fuel donations will be evacuation centers, construction vehicles and others in need, including those who assist in maintaining home care for the elderly and other affected residents.

"The earthquake and tsunami created immense suffering and anxiety in this area," said Philippe Ducom, lead country manager of the ExxonMobil Japan Group. "Our company, together with independent Esso, Mobil and General dealers, has worked hard over the past few weeks to restore fuel supplies to Tohoku but wanted to do more. Together, we hope to make a positive difference in the daily lives of the tsunami victims through this donation of fuel."

The coupons will be redeemable at Esso, Mobil and General stations in the prefectures starting on April 11.
