Citgo Petroleum Corp. said Monday that it will relocate its headquarters and 700 jobs from Tulsa, Okla., to Houston.

Citgo is just the latest company to move white-collar oil jobs to Houston.

San Francisco-based ChevronTexaco Corp. is consolidating the jobs of 3,700 workers and moving them to a downtown skyscraper formerly owned by Enron Corp.

Shell Oil Co., the U.S. arm of the London-based Royal Dutch/Shell Group of Cos., is based in Houston.

Phillips Petroleum Co. pulled up stakes from Bartlesville, Okla., after its 2002 merger with Houston-based Conoco Inc., and the combined company is ensconced in Houston.

Last year, Irving-based Exxon Mobil Corp. relocated hundreds of so-called extraction jobs to Houston from Louisiana, and Halliburton Co. moved its headquarters to Houston from Dallas.
