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.
In January 2012, San Miguel Corporation’s fuel subsidiary, Petron Corporation, announced its investment in ExxonMobil’s downstream businesses. With the acquisition’s completion on March 30, Petron Subsidiaries in Malaysia were established on April 2.
In July 2012, Esso Malaysia Berhad (EMB) was officially renamed to Petron Malaysia Refining & Marketing Bhd. The following subsidiaries of Petron Corp. were also renamed to Petron Fuel International Sdn Bhd (formerly known as ExxonMobil Malaysia Sdn Bhd) and Petron Oil (M) Sdn Bhd (formerly known as ExxonMobil Borneo Sdn Bhd).
Today, Petron Malaysia are the third largest and a major downstream player in Malaysia.

The revolutionary fuel brings ‘Petron experience’ to a whole new level by ensuring optimum engine performance and better mileage, powered by Tri-Activ, a triple action formula that delivers better power, better engine protection and better mileage.
In 2018, we were first to introduce cash and carry of LPG cooking gas at a service station.
