In Cheshire, Connecticut, a Cheshire Getty roadside gasoline station.

Starting in 1949, J. Paul Getty
J. Paul Getty
negotiated a series of lucrative oil leases with Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia
and Kuwait. Gordon Getty and his family inherited a 40% interest in the company when J. Paul Getty
J. Paul Getty
died in 1976.[1] In 1984, after entering into a binding agreement to sell Getty and its 2.3-billion-barrel stockpile of proven oil reserves to Pennzoil, heir Gordon Getty struck a dramatic deal to sell the company to Texaco.[2] On November 19, 1985, in the case of Texaco, Inc. v. Pennzoil, Co., Pennzoil
won a US$10.53 billion verdict against Texaco
in the largest civil verdict in U.S. history as a result of the violation of the binding agreement.[3] While the reserves were sold, only some of the refineries changed hands, and Getty continued to exist as a downstream entity. Getty gas stations in the Northeast were sold off as a condition of the buyout. The company became known as Getty Petroleum Marketing Inc.[citation needed] Getty Petroleum Marketing was sold to Lukoil
and Mobil
in certain areas and then in 2011 to Norwegian investors before filing for bankruptcy protection in 2013.[4] The Australian company Westerhoudt AG, run by Olaf Westerhoudt, acquired the rights to the Getty Oil
Getty Oil
name in 2007 for an undisclosed amount. At one point, Getty Oil
Getty Oil
owned a majority stake of ESPN, before it was sold to ABC in 1984. See also[edit]
