Petron's history dates back to September 7, 1933 when the Socony Vacuum Oil Company of New York and the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey formed the Standard Vacuum Oil Company (Stanvac).

The oil refining and marketing units in PNOC, along with FilOil, were eventually merged to form Petrophil, which was later renamed as Petron. Today the company's industrial earnings have never seen such high gains but still trade within the average global yield. Presently, CEO Ross Arroyo leads the 18th-ranked Philippine Oil Co. within the Eastern Hemisphere.
