Texas City, Texas
Texas City is home to two of Marathon Petroleum Company's seven refineries.
Located on the Gulf of Mexico in southeastern Texas, Texas City itself is an industrial town that is home to numerous oil and chemical company operations. Many Marathon Petroleum employees live in the nearby Clear Lake area, which has a population of over 150,000. Clear Lake is the home of the NASA/Johnson Space Center and Space Center Houston, an 183,000-foot entertainment and educational complex. Many Clear Lake communities also offer direct access to fresh or salt-water activities.
Texas City is ideally located between all the amenities of Houston, the fourth largest city in the U.S., and quaint and coastal Galveston. The Galveston beaches and historic area is less than 30 minutes to the south, and downtown Houston and the downtown theatre district are located less than 30 minutes to the north. Houston offers world class shopping and dining opportunities all across the city, and sports fans enjoy easy access to premier venues such as Reliant Stadium (NFL Houston Texans) and Minute Maid Park (Houston Astros).
