HPCL joins Chevron to introduce Caltex Lubricants in India

Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL), based in Mumbai, India, has forged a partnership with Chevron Lubricants, planning to launch Caltex lubricants across India. HPCL, a prominent public sector oil company in India, plans to utilise its expansive marketing network to distribute Caltex’s lubricants designed for passenger cars, commercial vehicles, two-wheelers, and various industrial uses.

The Caltex brand, which is owned by Chevron Corporation, isn’t unfamiliar to the Asian market, including India. Tracing its history back to the 1930s in India, Caltex had previously operated a lubricant blending plant in the country. With this renewed partnership, Chevron aims to integrate its global technological expertise to tailor-make products specifically for the diverse Indian landscape, while HPCL’s well-established distribution channels ensure widespread availability.

“The collaboration between HPCL and Chevron, leveraging HP Lubricants’ market leadership position in India and Chevron’s world-class heritage, is set to deliver increased value to Indian consumers through an expanded offering of premium products. Our long-term cooperation with Chevron is anchored in HPCL’s expertise in production, distribution, and marketing of lubricants and greases,” said Amit Garg, director – Marketing, HPCL.

“We are extremely pleased to bring quality and premium Caltex products to India. HPCL is a market leader in India, and together we plan to build on the strength of the Caltex brand and our premium product portfolio. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with HPCL, complementing their product offerings with Caltex premium products, including Chevron’s proprietary Havoline and Delo product range in India,” said Danielle Lincoln, vice president of Chevron International Products.
