Historical Note

Pennzoil Company, headquartered in Houston, Texas, is an oil producing, refining, and marketing company. Pennzoil traces its origins to two companies, Zapata Petroleum and South Penn Oil Company. In 1983, Pennzoil signed an agreement with Getty Oil for the purchase of Getty. Several days after public announcement of the agreement, Texaco purchased all of Getty Oil. Subsequently, Pennzoil filed a lawsuit against Texaco for interfering with its agreement with Getty Oil. After four years of trial, Pennzoil was awarded a $10.3 billion settlement in 1988. At the time, the settlement was the largest in history.
