GS Caltex opened a new chapter in Korea’s petroleum industry upon its inception in 1967 as the nation’s first private oil refinery.

Over the past 50 years, GS Caltex achieved impressive growth backed by bold investments in petroleum, lubricants and petrochemicals.
While providing a stable supply of energy in the domestic market, we export more than 70% of our products to 50 countries.
In doing so, we have contributed to Korea’s economic development and its emergence as a major exporter of petroleum products.

GS Caltex will continue growing in the fast-changing energy landscape with the launch of our olefin business.
A mixed feed cracker (MFC) is under construction with completion targeted for 2021. Olefins will strengthen
