    Crown Central narrowed its losses considerably in 1996, in part as a result of reducing operating costs at its refineries.

    A lockout at the company's Pasadena, Tex., refinery, just outside Houston, continues. Crown locked out members of the Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers union in 1995 for allegedly sabotaging equipment after contract talks broke down. In 1996 the National Labor Relations Board ruled that Crown had probable cause for its actions.

    The company's marketing division had a strong year, with merchandise sales increasing by 3.5 percent and gallons of fuel sold increasing by 3.7 percent. In July the company announced an agreement with Statoil of Norway in which Statoil will supply 20,000 barrels a day of crude oil to the Pasadena refinery, and Crown will provide Statoil with refined products.
