Frank and L.E. Phillips were two of the original experts in gas. They started prospecting for oil in 1903 and founded Phillips Petroleum Company in 1917. Since then, the company has grown considerably and has expanded its product offerings through its commitment to innovation and meeting customer needs. That’s fancy talk for “we keep making it better.”Phillips 66® also has a history with US Highway 66. In 1927, on the "Mother Road" during a test drive of a newly developed high-octane gasoline, the vehicle reached a cruising speed of 66 mph. The new fuel was named Phillips 66. Even the logo was inspired by the road signs that dot the length of the historic highway. And the rest is history. And gas. Very high performance gas.

Fluor was founded in 1912 by John Simon Fluor as Fluor Construction Company. It grew quickly, predominantly by building oil refineries, pipelines and other facilities for the oil and gas industry, at first in California, and then in the Middle East and globally.
In the late 1960s, it began diversifying into oil drilling, coal mining and other raw materials like lead. A global recession in the oil and gas industry and losses from its mining operation led to restructuring and layoffs in the 1980s. Fluor sold its oil operations and diversified its construction work into a broader range of services and industries.
