     ITEM 5.  Other Events

     On August 22, 2003, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals once again
ordered the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska to reconsider
the punitive damage award related to the Exxon Valdez grounding. On
December 6, 2002, the District Court reduced the punitive damages award
from $5 billion to $4 billion, after the Ninth Circuit vacated the original
$5 billion award. Both the plaintiffs and ExxonMobil appealed that decision
to the Ninth Circuit. The Ninth Circuit panel has now vacated the District
Court's $4 billion punitive damage award and has sent the case back for the
District Court to reconsider its decision in light of the recent U.S.
Supreme Court decision in Campbell v. State Farm.



     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
