Fina Oil & Chemicals

Fina Oil & Chemicals US, a division of American Petrofina, was located in the Campbell Center North Tower on the southeast corner of Central Expressway and Northwest Highway in Dallas, TX. Many know of the twin gold towers from the opening credits of the TV series Dallas.

I took part in a large Y2K project and managed to get a corner office to myself looking out over the Campbell Center Mall with the Dallas skyline in the background. It was an enjoyable project, however, it was scrubbed when Fina International took over the US shares. Since they already had y2k compliancy, our project was no longer needed. FINA was on an IBM 370 using COBOL II and IMS DB/DC.
