Texas investors agreed to buy Powerine Oil.

The price paid by the unidentified investors wasn't disclosed. A spokesman said the investors plan to rename the Santa Fe, N.M., refiner Superior Processing. Powerine, which was owned by the Harry Rothschild family, went bankrupt in March, 1984. It was one of many small refineries to close as a result of overcapacity in the industry.
