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

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.

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, compared to Globe Oil's red and black. The colour scheme seems to be taken from 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 Ellie, Tezeract, and Flash GT.
