At a news conference Thursday in Oklahoma City, Governor Brad Henry addressed the possibility that Citgo may be leaving Tulsa and moving its headquarters to Houston.

"Well my first thought is we're going to do everything we can within our perimeters of reason to keep Citgo here. They're a valuable contributor to our economy, employing nearly 1,000 people in the Tulsa area. And we want to do everything we can and we're doing that."

The governor says he is in the process of scheduling meetings with Citgo's new CEO to see what needs to be done.
