Sunoco dims employment in Nueces CountySunoco dims employment in Nueces Countyhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=121612016-02-17T06:00:00Z2016-02-17T16:00:00Z

​NUECES COUNTY - Sunoco LP, the chief fuel supplier for South Texas Stripes convenience stores, laid off 161 people.

Speculation about the possibility of staff reductions spread in the Coastal Bend after the Corpus Christi-based Susser family sold its interest in the Stripes chain nearly two years ago.

In April 2014, Energy Transfer Partners announced its plans to purchase Susser Holdings, then Corpus Christi's only Fortune 500 company, for $1.8 billion. Shareholders signed off on the deal in August 2014.

Energy Transfer Partners owns 35,000 miles of natural gas pipelines and purchased fuel giant Sunoco's 5,000 gas stations in 2012.

Stripes officials in November notified its remaining employees in Corpus Christi they would open an office in Dallas, where Energy Transfer Partners is headquartered.
