How Our Products Reach You

1. We operate one of the most advanced refineries in the region and source most of our crude oil from the Middle East.

This is transported to our 180,000 barrel-per-day Petron Bataan Refinery (PBR) – the largest and most advanced in the country. Crude oil is the raw material for products we use daily such as LPG, diesel, and gasoline. It also provides petrochemicals which is essential in the production of home appliances, electronic devices, and even the clothes we wear.

2. We are proud of our products that fuel progress. The first step in processing crude oil is the distillation or separation process.

Heat is applied to separate various components of crude oil such as LPG, naphtha (used in gasoline), diesel, kerosene and fuel oil. Lighter components such as naphtha are easier to boil and are collected at the upper part of the distillation column. Heavier components such as fuel oil accumulate at the bottom of the column.

Our products undergo more processes to meet strict quality and environmental specifications. Raw naphtha, for example, is sent to a Reformer Unit. The Reformer uses a catalyst to increase the octane number of naphtha while producing LPG, gasoline, and reformate.

This is how we produce our world-class gasoline such as the Petron Blaze 100 Euro 6, the best gasoline in the country with the highest octane rating and meets the most stringent global emission standards.

Meanwhile, reformate is further converted to become petrochemical feedstocks Benzene, Toluene, and Mixed Xylene. Our diesel production goes through a Hydrotreater to reduce sulfur content.

Our Petron Turbo Diesel is derived from this process and together with our unique additives package results in improved acceleration, better fuel economy, and reduced emissions.

We also fully convert fuel oil into higher value transportation fuels through “cracking” units namely our Fluidized Catalytic Crackers and Delayed Coker. Other products in the process are fed to a Recovery Unit which produced more LPG and the petrochemical propylene.

3. We deliver safely and efficiently from PBR, we move our petroleum products mainly by sea to 30 strategically-located terminals across the country.

These facilities then transport essential products to our industrial customers and to our extensive retail network for fuels and LPG. This is how we produce our world-class gasoline such as the Petron Blaze 100 Euro 6, the best gasoline in the country with the highest octane rating and meets the most stringent global emission standards.

4. We are there at every touchpoint. Finally, our world-class products reach you, our customers.

In the Philippines, we boast of having the most extensive service station network which numbers 2,400. You can find a Petron station even in far-flung areas. We also serve essential industries including power-generation, manufacturing, transportation, aviation, and agriculture. We also retail Petron Gasul and Fiesta Gas LPG in nearly 14,700 branches nationwide to serve Filipino families. From crude sourcing, refining, and distribution, each part of our value chain works in close concert to provide millions of our customers products that uniquely formulated to meet, even exceed their. This is how we fuel lives.
