Farewell, Esso

August 16, 2012

Yes, we have all seen the change of corporate branding along the North South Highway (and others) from Esso to Petron. But, for the less glamorous petrol stations, they still maintain the old corporate identity. Esso, we salute you. Now, if Shell would like to sell its downstream activities to … Carling?


Petron not giving up on Esso Malaysia takeover bid

May 31, 2012

Dateline 2012-10-15:

Petron Corp. wants to fully take over a Malaysian oil refiner by offering to buy out its remaining public shareholders for the second time.

Petron, through its international arm Petron Oil and Gas International Sdn, Bhd, has beefed up its stake in Esso Malaysia Bhd to 73.32% from 65% after a recent tender offer to minority shareholders.

Petron chairman and CEO Ramon Ang told reporters they hoped to own 100% of Esso, but not all shareholders accepted their offer.


Esso minority shareholders told to reject Petron offer

May 4, 2012

Don’t know about you, but didn’t Esso sell EMB because it wasn’t making that much money?

Dateline 2012-04-20:

Kenanga Investment Bank Bhd, which is the adviser for Esso Malaysia Bhd (EMB) minority shareholders, has advised them to reject the takeover offer by Petron Corp, an affiliate of Philippines-based San Miguel Corp (SMC) so that they may benefit from the positive prospects of the oil and gas industry in which EMB operates in.


Esso petrol station operators face supply shortage

April 28, 2012

Dateline 2012-04-09:

Esso station operators in the Klang Valley claim that their businesses have been affected when they did not receive petrol and diesel supplies from the oil company lately.

The disruption in the supply of the commodity raised questions among operators of the petrol stations whether the problem was linked to the change in management following the take-over of Esso Malaysia Bhd by Petron Oil and Gas International Sdn Bhd.

Petron Oil and Gas International, a unit under San Miguel Corporation, acquired 65 percent interests in ExxonMobil International Holdings Inc including Esso petrol stations and the Esso oil refinery in Port Dickson in the transaction that was reported to have been concluded on March 30.

May I suggest that readers install the Waze app on their phones? And use it as much as possible? It says its a “a social mobile application providing free turn-by-turn navigation based on the live conditions of the road. 100% powered by users, the more you drive, the better it gets. Join the community of drivers in your area today!” It’s definitely getting better for the Klang Valley area, though we need more users from East Malaysia.
