US travel centre operator Pilot Flying J is to take a controlling interest in Maxum Petroleum, reported a daily newspaper

Maxum is an independent energy logistics company and the move is seen as Pilot Flying J seeking to firm up its presence in the oil drilling industry and beyond. Maxum specialises in solutions and fuel supply for a mainly industrial client base.

Jimmy Haslam, Pilot Flying J President and CEO said: "It helps what we call our energy service - selling diesel fuel to all the drilling and [hydraulic fracturing] operations around the country. Second, it will allow us to expand our energy service to mining companies all over the country. Third it will allow us to expand our basic wholesale business and, fourth, we get into new business opportunities selling fuel for boats and ships on the West Coast."
