Un Amigo de Poseidon Energy— Petró-Chico's slogan

Petró-Chico was the arm of Poseidon Energy operating in Mexico before the Great War.[1]


The company had locations in Veracruz, Puebla, and Hidalgo,[2] as well as a refinery along the Gulf Coast.[3] Raul Tejada tells the Courier that he went by the name "Miguel" due to finding a jumpsuit bearing the name at an old Petro-Chico refinery he took up residence in after leaving Mexico City.[3] The company's slogan was "Un Amigo de Poseidon Energy," translated as "a friend of Poseidon Energy."


Petró-Chico translates to "Oil-Boy" and Petró-Chico Boy, as seen on billboards, is mentioned by Raul as he wakes up from a nightmare about the mascot.[4]


Petró-Chico is mentioned only in Fallout: New Vegas.



  1. The Courier: "What's 'Petro-Chico?'"
    Raul Tejada: "You never heard of Petro-Chico, un Amigo de Poseidon Energy? Ah, of course not. They were an oil company in Mexico, back before the War."
    (Raul Tejada's dialogue)
  2. Sign for Petró-Chico
  3. 3.0 3.1 Courier Six: "So what did you do?"
    Raul Tejada: "I left Mexico City behind. I made my way out to the Gulf Coast, eventually I found an old Petro-Chico refinery nobody had claimed. I stayed there for a little while, and I thought a lot about my life. I thought about the guns I'd lived by and what they'd gotten me. I decided my guns hadn't gotten me anything, and it was time to give it up. I took off that old vaquero outfit, and put on a Petro-Chico jumpsuit. The name tag said 'Miguel,' so I started using the name myself. Eventually I made it to Arizona... but that's another story, boss."

  4. Raul Tejada: "Gah! Petro-Chico Boy! Petro-Chico Boy is here for my chitlins! Oh. Just a dream. Just a dream...."
