About Phillips Energy, Inc.

As one of Upper Tidewater's only providers of heating oil, on- and off-road diesel, gasoline, propane, dyed and clear kerosene, and lubricants, Phillips Energy, Inc. meets the complete energy needs of homes and businesses in Gloucester, Mathews, and York Counties, and the Williamsburg area. But we're not just a fuels company — our customers rely on our professional installation, repair and maintenance services, as well. Meeting ALL your energy needs — that's Phillips.

A Proud History

Phillips Energy, Inc. was founded in 1946 by L. Frank Phillips Sr. in Gloucester County as L.F. Phillips & Sons, Inc. At that time, the company sold heating fuels, gasoline and motor oils. L. Frank Phillips, Jr. acquired ownership in the late 1960s. With the purchase of Tidewater Oil Co., the business expanded its service area into Mathews County. In the early 1990s, Mr. Phillips' children, John Phillips and Elizabeth McCormick, joined the business. They expanded the company, purchased J.C. Brown Oil Co. and shortly thereafter changed its name to Phillips Energy, Inc.

Over the last 20 years, Phillips Energy has added a propane gas distribution division, a propane appliance installation and service division and an HVAC installation and service division. Additionally, Phillips Energy, Inc. now has two locations; Gloucester County and Mathews County, with a bulk plant in each location.

In late 2009, the company added a 24-hour fueling facility including alternative fuels with a vision of fueling the future. Located at 2586 George Washington Memorial Highway in Hayes, our new retail facility offers convenient fueling for the general public and private fleets. Our addition of propane autogas, E85 flex fuel, and 20% biodiesel made Phillips Energy the first company in Virginia to offer three alternative fuels for on-road use.
