Tesoro expanding its retail network

By OGJ editors

Independent oil refiner Tesoro Corp. is expanding its retail network by about 290 outlets through two transactions.

It has agreed to buy 51 Albertson’s Fuel Express stations from SUPERVALU Inc. for $34 million and plans to invest $5 million in branding capital. The stations are in Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming.

From Thrifty Oil Co., Tesoro will lease 241 retail stations, most of them in southern California, for an initial term of 10 years and invest $28 million in branding capital.

Excluding outlets covered in these deals, Tesoro’s retail system includes nearly 1,200 branded stations, of which it operates 375 under the Tesoro, Shell, and USA Gasoline brands.

Through subsidiaries, Tesoro operates seven refineries in the western US with total crude capacity of 665,000 b/d.
