National Petrochemical & Refiners Association


"From its beginning as the National Petroleum Association, which was founded in 1902, NPRA has successfully served an industry that has been changed dramatically by technology and the industrial developments of the 20th century. NPA was founded by a group of primarily East Coast-based refining companies, such as Sun Oil, Pure Oil, Sinclair and Shell. It was joined in 1912 by the Western Petroleum Refiners Association or WPRA, which was founded as a sister organization representing mid-continent refiners. The two organizations worked together on many issues and jointly opened a Washington, DC office in 1918."
