Description

The company is mostly known to operate a chain of filling stations at Feldspar St, Suffolk, Liberty City and Tinderbox Ave, Tudor, Alderney (combined with car wash); the latter is featured in GTA Chinatown Wars as one of the many filling station where the player can produce Molotov cocktails. There are also filling stations in Los Santos at the corner of Alta St and Innocence Blvd in La Puerta and at the corner of Clinton Ave and Fenwell Pl in Downtown Vinewood. The two Los Santos stations are accompanied by the Discount Beauty Store chain with the La Puerta staton also the location of an optional armed robbery. Its name alludes to its vast reach and control of oil around the world.

Other notable landmarks include its offices at Babbage Drive in Berchem, Alderney, and a large refining facility in the Acter Industrial Park. Globe Oil also operates its own website, www.globeoil.net, in The Lost and Damned.

Globe Oil's logo, and the company itself, is likely based on Halliburton, an oil company which has had many controversies involving the 2003 Iraq War, and even linked to former Vice President of the U.S. Dick Cheney.
