This month, Chevron’s Penjuru Terminal celebrated 60 years of operations. Penjuru Terminal functions as a hub for transportation fuels, base oil, marine and finished lubricants supply. It is one of the largest terminals in the Chevron network supporting many markets across the Asia-Pacific region.
Since its inception in 1958, Penjuru Terminal has expanded to house more than 100 tanks, seven jetties for bunker barge loading, onsite fuel blending facilities and a direct pipeline from Chevron’s joint venture SRC refinery on Jurong Island. During the anniversary celebrations, employees and contractors were thanked for their dedication to operating safely and responsibly while delivering reliable products on time to customers.
“My thanks to the entire Penjuru team, both employees and valued contractors, who uphold Chevron’s commitment to protect our people and the environment every day,” said Glenn Johnson, vice president of Asia Products at Chevron.
The celebrations also included recognition of several Chevron employees for their long service with the company: Andrew Lim Siew Kuan (43 years of service), Karupiah Sathyiacelan (45 years) and Francis Lai Siew Choy (45 years).
Speaking on his longevity with the company, Lai said, “I’m honored to receive this award. Chevron has changed so much over the years, but they always take care of people. We need to adapt and move to keep up with times, and we don’t always need to move up – sometimes moving sideways to gather knowledge and learn is more important.”
Penjuru Terminal also leads the digital transformation journey for Chevron’s lubricants supply chain. Some of the facility’s digital innovations include systems that deliver enhanced transparency and coordination between plant operations and laboratories, eliminating paper processes with real-time reporting tools and automating repetitive activities.
