Gulf Oil Trading And

Transportation Division

Will Move To Houston

Gulf Trading & Transporta- tion Company (GT&T), a division of Gulf Oil Corporation, Pitts- burgh, Pa., responsible for ma- rine transportation and the sup- ply, sales and trading of foreign crude oil, will transfer its head- quarters and the bulk of its op- erations to Houston, Texas.

Herbert I. Goodman, president of GT&T, said the move will fa- cilitate the coordination of the crude oil supply function with the

March 1, 1980 27 refining, marketing, exploration and production segments of the corporation already based in

Houston. "Gulf traditionally has depend- ed upon long-term supply con- tracts for much of our refining system requirements," Mr. Good- man said, "but constantly chang- ing conditions in international crude oil supply are now dictat- ing an even more closely coordi- nated effort by all the operating elements of the corporation's oil business, with a great premium on fast reactions and prompt de- cision making. "It has become increasingly clear that GT&T headquarters and operations must be in the same location as its principal cus- tomers and clients, which are

Gulf's refining and production di- visions. This need now dictates our move to Houston."

Following a restructuring of the corporation in 1975, three of

Gulf's operating companies—Gulf

Refining & Marketing Company,

Gulf Oil Exploration and Produc- tion Company, and Gulf Oil Chem- icals Company—moved their head- quarters to Houston.

Gulf Oil Corporation currently employs about 3,000 people in the

Pittsburgh area. Approximately 180 GT&T employees will be in- volved in the move.

The GT&T move to Houston will begin in April, and is sched- uled to be completed in September of this year.
