United Petroleum is an independent, Australian owned petrol and convenience company which offers customers premium quality fuels and competitive pricing Australia-wide.

United Petroleum is one of the fastest growing independent companies in Australia, specialising in the retail and wholesale fuel markets; convenience stores and ethanol manufacture; generating employment for over 2,500 Australians.

United Petroleum History

The Directors of United commenced in the petroleum industry in 1981, operating a group of service stations under the Astron banner. Astron was closely associated with Esso (an Exxon Company), and by 1990 the company had constructed 23 new sites operating under the Esso brand throughout Victoria. 

United Petroleum was established in 1993 with the opening of a chain of service stations/convenience stores in South Australia. It expanded operations into Victoria, and over the next two years built networks in New South Wales, ACT and Queensland. 

The company subsequently acquired and developed sites in Western Australia, Northern Territory and Tasmania and now has a national network of service stations and associated tenancies. 

United Petroleum vertically integrated in the mid 2000’s via the acquisition of fuel import terminals in Victoria, New South Wales, Northern Territory and Tasmania. Control of terminal facilities has allowed United Petroleum to seek high quality petroleum products not only from refineries within our shores, but also via the importation of bulk tanker-loads. 

This has allowed the company to increase supply-chain security and provides pricing and negotiating benefits, giving the United Petroleum the ability to compete aggressively with major competitors.

Voted Number 1 for Customer Service and Fuel Price 2011 - 2014
CANSTAR presented United Petroleum with the prestigious ‘Most Satisfied Customers – Service Stations’ award for the fourth year in a row. United Petroleum ranks above Caltex, Mobile, 7-Eleven, Coles Express, BP, Shell and Caltex Woolworths, recognising our persistent efforts in delivering customer-focused service. United Petroleum also was voted as the best priced petrol by CANSTAR.
