Our History

Petron in Malaysia traces its rich heritage to 1893 when it was first established as a Standard Vacuum Oil Company. Along the way, we have experienced many significant changes which included mergers and acquisitions, shaping us into who we are now.

Today, we are Petron Malaysia, a part of Petron Corporation in the Philippines, an emerging and rapidly evolving Asian oil company.
