Chevron opens 15 new gasoline stations in 4th quarter

Oil industry player Chevron Philippines Inc. has opened 15 new gasoline stations in the fourth quarter of 2021, a remarkable reinforcement on its retail network to serve more customers in various parts of the country.

The company’s new retail stations had been sited in Guinangayan, Quezon; Pila, Laguna; Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro; Marilao, Bulacan; San Fernando, Pampanga; and Libmanan, Camarines Sur in Luzon.

For the Visayas, its recently opened stations are those in Loon, Bohol; Can Avid, Eastern Samar; Sara and Dumangas in Iloilo; while the Mindanao new stations are in Sto Tomas and Panabo City in Davao del Norte.

The expansion of its retail portfolio, which summed up to 35 new stations for the whole year of 2021 -- as well as its 73 new Havoline autoPro and bikePro workshops that were carried out nationwide -- had been what the company considered as its milestone achievements last year.

According to Chevron Philippines Country Chairman Billy Liu, their company is “even more determined to continue finding ways to make Filipino motorists journey an enjoyable ride this 2022.”

“I am delighted that we were able to reach so many milestones in 2021 as the country gradually reopened,” Liu said.

The downstream oil sector had been among the heavily battered-industries at the height of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020; but industry players have already been indicating rebound in sales volume and financial performance since last year.

“Aside from Caltex’s continuous expansion efforts, other notable milestones for 2021 were inking of new partnerships and the rollout of a number of promotions,” the company stressed.

It qualified that beyond “the continued growth of its retail network, Caltex also formed strategic alliances with industry leaders to provide more value offerings for Filipino motorists.”

In particular, it noted that the company teamed up with Data Analytics Ventures, Inc. (DAVI) of the Gokongwei group for their Go Rewards loyalty program and Suzuki Philippines for Caltex SavePlus – that way, they can bring in more value for their customers.
