Apart from a few tanker spillages, refinery explosions, human rights abuses and devastated ecosystems, Globe Oil's environmental record is exemplary.

Globe Oil is a petroleum company featured in Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Grand Theft Auto V, and Grand Theft Auto Online.

Description

In Grand Theft Auto IV, the company operates a chain of filling stations in Suffolk, Liberty City and Tudor, Alderney (combined with car wash and near a Swing set); the latter is featured in GTA Chinatown Wars as one of the many filling stations where the player can produce Molotov cocktails.

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

Globe Oil spends a lot of money to lobby in Congress in Washington, where they help get energy legislation shut down. Globe Oil is also the largest corporate contributor to President Lawton's Administration.

Aside from petroleum, Globe Oil also sells personal lubricants, and the "high temperature AX_487G food machine grease" which is used at Burger Shot, and Cluckin' Bell.

In Grand Theft Auto V, there are three Globe Oil gas stations throughout San Andreas; two within the city of Los Santos and another located in Blaine County.

Influence

Globe Oil appears to have an intended pronunciation of "global", alluding to the vast reach and control of global oil monopolies.

It is a parody of Gulf Oil and its successor Gulf Oil LP, as the names are similar and the logos share similar styling, but the colour scheme is different from Gulf's orange and blue, and it seems to be based on Texaco, which also uses red and black.

The filling stations also appear to take some influence from Gulf Oil stations, like the price signs and gas pumps.

Some motorsport liveries are based on the iconic Gulf racing liveries, even including the orange colours. Some vehicles that have these liveries are the Tyrus, Ellie, Tezeract, and Flash GT. Some other liveries also feature orange colors, despite not appearing to be based on gulf liveries, such as liveries for the Dune and the Tyrus.
