Murco Petroleum Ltd is a UK-based oil refining company. It was set up by Murphy Oil Corporation in 1960.[1]

The company owns a chain of Costcutter convenience stores.[2]

In 1981 Murco purchased a 30% stake in Amoco's Milford Haven Refinery and in 2007 they purchased the remaining 70%.[3]

In 2008, they purchased Petrol Express Limited for £52 million from its parent company GNE Group, and the 63 sites brought Murco's total number of petrol stations to 230.[4]
