A partner you trust. Experience that matters.

O’Rourke Petroleum is a Houston-based distributor of lubricants, fuels, and environmental services. Family-owned and operated since 1932, we are a financially sound organization that has grown from a single gas station to a leading national distributor of petroleum products and services to the Automotive, Construction, Industrial, Marine, Oil & Gas, Petrochemicals & Refining, and Transportation industries.

Throughout the years, O’Rourke has gained a loyal customer base by following our Guiding Principles:

  • Forming partnerships with customers based on trust and respect
