Caltex is a petroleum brand name of Chevron Corporation used in more than 60 countries in the Asia-Pacific region, the Middle East, and southern Africa

Caltex began in 1936 as the California Texas Oil Company, a joint venture between The Texas Company (later named Texaco) & Standard Oil of California (later named Chevron) to market oil from newly gained concessions in Saudi Arabia. It was renamed Caltex Petroleum Corporation in 1968. The two parent companies merged in 2001 to form ChevronTexaco (renamed Chevron in 2005) & Caltex remains 1 of its major international brand names

Australasian History of CALTEX

When the US military provisioning organisation moved into Australia in 1942 during WW2, they had prohibitions against contracting for petroleum & other services from foreign companies, but had to have at least 2 tenders for any contract.
Because Mobil was the only US petroleum co operating in Australasia at that time, there was an issue that was only resolved when the US Department of War convinced Standard Oil of California & Texaco to set up a joint venture in Australia & NZ

In 1981 Caltex acquired Golden Fleece, & in 1995 merged with Ampol with most Ampol service stations progressively rebranded as Caltex

Caltex operates the largest oil company retail network in Australia with an estimated retail market share of 30%
