LUKOIL entered the United States market in 2000 when it purchased New York-based Getty Petroleum Marketing Inc. and its network of Getty-branded stations on the East Coast.
The first LUKOIL-branded service station in the United States opened in September 2003. In 2004, LUKOIL purchased a major portfolio of Mobil-branded stations from ConocoPhillips Company in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, many of which subsequently became LUKOIL-branded service stations.
LUKOIL North America LLC began operations in 2009. In 2011, as a result of portfolio optimization, the Getty network was sold. Today, LUKOIL North America operates a network of LUKOIL-branded service stations in the states of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
