  A MAJOR OIL COMPANY RELOCATION TO GENERATE US$828M INVESTMENT IN REFINERIES
   
  Citgo Petroleum Corporation has decided to move its headquarters from Tulsa, Oklahoma, to Houston, and to make an US$828m investment in the Corpus Christi refinery. The investment is split three ways, with roughly US$300m going to environmental fuel production upgrades, US$200m to refinery maintenance and another US$300m to increase refining capacity.
The improvements at the refinery represent the single largest refinery expansion in the United States in 20 years, said Ron Kitchens, president and CEO of the Corpus Christi Economic Development Corporation.
