Dear Mr. Tillerson:

      We have limited our review of the above filing to
relating to your contacts with countries that have been identified
state sponsors of terrorism, and we will make no further review of
the filing.  Our review with respect to this issue does not

issues.  At this juncture, we are asking you to provide us with
supplemental information so that we may better understand your
disclosure.  Please be as detailed as necessary in your response.

      Please understand that the purpose of our review process is

any questions you may have about our comments or on any other

1. We note from public media sources that you may have existing or
anticipated operations associated with Iran, Syria and Sudan,
are identified as state sponsors of terrorism by the U.S. State
Department and subject to export controls imposed, in part, as a
result of actions in support of terrorism and/or pursuit of
of mass destruction and missile programs.  We note that your Form
K does not contain any disclosure about operations in these
countries.  With a view to disclosure, please address the
of your contacts with these countries.  Your response should
your current, historical and anticipated operations in, and
with, these countries, including through subsidiaries, affiliates,
joint ventures and other direct and indirect arrangements.

2. In your materiality analysis, please discuss whether your
operations or contacts, if any, constitute a material investment
for your security holders.  Please also address the impact on your
business of any operational challenges or regulatory compliance
challenges resulting from any contacts with Syria, Iran or Sudan.

3. In preparing your response please consider that evaluations of
materiality should not be based solely on quantitative factors,
as the approximate dollar amount of revenues and assets associated
with Syria, Iran and Sudan, but should include consideration of
qualitative factors that a reasonable investor would deem
in making an investment decision, including the potential impact
corporate activities upon a company`s reputation and share value.
this regard, we note that Arizona and Louisiana have adopted
legislation requiring their state retirement systems to prepare
reports regarding state pension fund assets invested in, and/or
permitting divestment of state pension fund assets from, companies
that do business with countries identified as state sponsors of
terrorism.  Illinois, Oregon and New Jersey have adopted, and
states are considering, legislation prohibiting the investment of
certain state assets in, and/or requiring the divestment of
state assets from, companies that do business with Sudan.  Harvard
University, Stanford University, and Dartmouth College have all
adopted policies prohibiting investment in, and/or requiring
divestment from, companies that do business with Sudan.  Your
materiality analysis should address the potential impact of the
investor sentiment evidenced by these actions.
