Vision & Values

Who We Are

CITGO Petroleum Corporation is a U.S.-based petroleum company with a rich heritage of more than 100 years.

Our history as an American success story began in 1910 with the founding of the Cities Service Company, a then pioneering utility services provider to the sprawling cities of the Midwest.  In 1965, our now familiar and enduring CITGO “trimark” brand was born.


To be a World Benchmark Corporation based on our sound success in the energy industry and our social development programs.

Social Responsibility
We understand that we operate as a privilege in the communities where we serve, not as a right. We promote and participate in a wide variety of social development programs to improve the quality of life of people, especially those who feel the severe backlash of poverty. We also promote the spirit of volunteerism and encourage employees to take active roles in our communities.

We will ensure the availability of our operations by making sure work processes and equipment are always ready and capable of performing their assigned work. It is only by being available that we can continue to ensure the safety and health of our employees and our neighbors, the protection of our natural resources, the reliable supply of product to our customers and our commitment to social responsibility.

We will be competitive through efficient and reliable operations, high quality products and superior customer service. We adopt best practices, seek innovation and share knowledge. We learn from our mistakes, from each other and from the best in our industry. We apply technology to our competitive advantage and are good stewards of our controllable costs.
