Anabi Oil Chooses Tesoro Fuel for Newly Acquired Rebel Stations
LAS VEGAS — Anabi Oil Corp. selected Tesoro Corp.’s Tesoro Refining & Marketing Co. LLC division to sell fuel at 55 gas stations and convenience stores it recently acquired in the Las Vegas area.
As CSNews Online previously reported, Anabi purchased the c-stores from Rebel Oil Co. last month. According to Tesoro, this agreement allows the San Antonio company to increase its fuel sales in the Las Vegas region and strengthen the presence of the ARCO and Mobil brands.
Anabi’s newly-acquired retail network is complementary to Tesoro’s existing network of 50 ARCO and Mobil branded locations in greater Las Vegas, Tesoro said in a statement. “This region is strategic for Tesoro as it provides supply flexibility from Tesoro’s Los Angeles and Salt Lake City refineries and establishes a platform for the continued expansion of the ARCO and Mobil brands.”
Sam Anabi, president of Anabi Oil, said the transaction is a strong strategic move for his company. “Tesoro is a strategic and valuable partner to Anabi Oil Corp., and we look forward to a long relationship with Tesoro,” he said.
Supply to the 55 retail stations in Las Vegas commenced in mid-December, Tesoro revealed.
“We are very pleased to add these 55 high-quality locations to our existing branded portfolio in Las Vegas and to further grow our business,” said Claude Moreau, senior vice president of marketing for Tesoro.
Tesoro Corp.’s retail-marketing system includes more than 2,300 retail stations under the ARCO, Shell, Exxon, Mobil, USA Gasoline and Tesoro brands.
