highlights of operations
In Malaysia, Chevron does business through our subsidiary Chevron Malaysia Limited. We are most visible through our network of Caltex® service stations.
In 2016, we marked our 80th year in Malaysia. Our employees work in marketing, lubricants and terminal operations.
Chevron also plays an active role in local communities, where we focus on social investment in initiatives for education and skills development and training.
Chevron imports fuels and lubricants from our fuel refinery and blending facilities in Singapore and Thailand. Unleaded gasoline, diesel and lubricants are received through three terminals that we operate in Peninsular Malaysia.
We have more than 420 Caltex service stations in Peninsular Malaysia. We sell Caltex with Techron® fuels, including Premium 95 with Techron, Premium 97 with Techron, Caltex Diesel (Bio) with Techron D and Caltex Power Diesel (Euro 5) with Techron D. Our customers in Malaysia can also buy Havoline® and Delo® engine oils and coolants as well as Techron® Concentrate Plus fuel additives.
In 2014, we increased the amount of palm oil in our biodiesel fuel to 7 percent in compliance with the Malaysian government’s mandate.
Also in 2014, we launched the Caltex JOURNEY® Card loyalty program in partnership with B Infinite. Cardholders can earn and redeem points from more than 70 B Infinite merchants, at more than 3,000 outlets nationwide. The program brings additional value to fuel purchases at Caltex service stations.
Chevron also markets Delo® and Havoline® lubricants and coolants, along with other lubricating oils and greases, to consumer, commercial and industrial customers through a network of distributors.
in the community
Under the Caltex brand, Chevron has established a history of socially responsible and ethical operations and a track record of supporting communities through outreach programs.
We invest in education, job training, charitable events and programs that provide for those in need.
In 2012, we began an international extension of Chevron’s successful Fuel Your School campaign in Penang. The extension funded 30 projects, benefiting more than 10,000 students. The Caltex Fuel Your School campaign aims to enhance science, technology, engineering and math education in public schools. In 2013, the campaign was extended to the states of Kedah and Johor, and funding was provided for 61 projects that benefit more than 27,000 students. In 2014, 46 classroom projects were added in Kedah and Terengganu states, helping more than 12,700 students. In 2015, another 50 classroom projects were funded in the states of Malacca and Negeri Sembilan for 9,000 students. In 2016, the program grew again, expanding into the states of Pahang and Kelantan, funding 49 classroom projects and benefiting more than 10,000 students.
record of achievement
In 1937, Caltex began business operations in what was then known as Malaya, marketing lubricants from its office in Singapore. Caltex Oil (Malaya) Ltd. was incorporated in 1959 and assumed responsibility for the marketing of a wide range of petroleum products. In 1965, the company name was changed to Caltex Oil Malaysia Limited, reflecting the name of the young nation.
Chevron and Texaco merged in 2001, and Caltex Oil Malaysia Limited changed its name to Chevron Malaysia Limited in 2006.
Chevron relaunched its patented Caltex with Techron® products in 2006. Techron is an additive that works like a detergent to remove and prevent fuel deposits in engines. In 2009, we made Premium 95 with Techron available at all of our service stations in Malaysia.
Also in 2009, we introduced Caltex Diesel with Techron D®, an advanced, multifunctional diesel additive. In 2011, we introduced Caltex Diesel (Bio) with Techron D, a biodiesel fuel blend with 5 percent palm methyl esters, a compound made from palm oil. The blend was increased to 7 percent in 2014.
operational excellence – safety, health, environment, reliability and efficiency
Wherever Chevron works, we are committed to using our Operational Excellence Management System (OEMS) to meet the highest health, environment and safety standards.
The OEMS safety processes are designed to help us operate our facilities safely and reliably. These processes support a culture of safety, environmental stewardship and top performance. Our workforce truly believes that incidents are preventable, and we have policies, processes, tools and behavioral expectations in place to assist us in achieving that goal.
Since 2007, Chevron Malaysia has rolled out a number of important work processes designed to improve the safety of our operations. The processes teach safe work practices and promote contractor health, environmental protection and safety. One example is the annual Contractor Health, Environment and Safety Management Forum, where our partnering contractors share their best practices for cultivating a safety culture in their organizations.
To prepare for emergencies, Chevron facilities are equipped with emergency response plans, business continuity plans and other procedures designed to ensure prompt recovery of business operations.
Training, routine drills and tabletop exercises presented by internal and external safety experts prepare our employees, contractors, and emergency response and crisis management teams for a wide range of incident scenarios.
Chevron Malaysia Limited is a member of two oil spill response groups: Petroleum Industries of Malaysia Mutual Aid Group and Oil Spill Response.

Caltex won Bronze in the Automotive Fuels category at the Putra Brand Awards 2014, a poll of 6,000 consumers that ranked brand strength in 24 categories. This is the second time Caltex has received this award, the first being in 2011. In 2015, Caltex stepped up a notch, winning the Silver Award in the Automotive Fuel and Lubricants category.
