Brand History

With our motto “Quality Endurance Passion”, Gulf provides high quality product and services throughout the world.

Gulf oil was founded in 1901 by the Mellon family at the time of discovery of oil in Texas. Gulf developed the idea of branded product sales by selling gasoline in containers and from pumps marked with the distinctive ‘Orange Disc’ logo.

Today the Gulf brand distribution network is recognized and operative in more than 100 countries in Asia, Europe, North and Southern America.

Gulf was bought by Chevron in 1984 after which the company experienced steady growth and development and continues to do so.

Gulf is a strong oil company with operations including exploration, production and transport, refining and marketing. One of Gulf’s initial visionary steps was the introduction of the first drive-in service station in 1911. Other pioneering moves included introducing complimentary road maps, over-water drilling and catalytic cracking refineries.

Gulf Oil International (GOI) employs leading international technologists who ensure production and sale of high quality fuel and lubricants in more than 100 countries worldwide.

Gulf continues its growth and development. Experience gained and state of the art technologies make Gulf a leader company on a global market and ensure its steady development.
