Par Petroleum Corporation is a Houston-based company that manages and maintains interests in a variety of energy-related assets. Par is a growth company that looks for acquisitions with strong fundamentals and employees who can move the business forward.
Par, through its subsidiaries, owns and operates a 94,000 bpd refinery located in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. This refinery, together with substantial storage capacity, a 27-mile pipeline system, terminals, and retail outlets, provides a substantial portion of the energy demands of Hawaii.
Par’s largest oil and gas asset is its investment in Piceance Energy, LLC, which owns and operates natural gas reserves located in the Piceance Basin of Colorado.
Par also markets, transports and distributes crude petroleum-based energy products through Texadian Energy. With significant logistics capability on key pipeline systems, a rail car fleet, and a fleet of chartered barge tows, Par believes it has a competitive advantage in moving crude oil efficiently from land locked locations in the Western U.S. and Canada to the refining hubs in the Midwest, the Gulf Coast, and the East Coast.
Par Petroleum’s charter contains restrictions that prohibit parties from acquiring 5% or more of Par Petroleum’s common stock without its prior consent.
