Puerto Rican entrepreneur Antonio De Jesús founds Best Petroleum Corp. as an independent fuel distributor.

 

 

During the 1990’s, the Puerto Rico fuel market goes through a major transformation with the rapid growth in number of independent fuel stations. Best Petroleum, with its own storage tanks and fleet of delivery trucks, secures an advantaged position to serve this new market and becomes the key supplier to independent fuel stations.

Best Petroleum secures a long term agreement to lease fuel storage facilities from CORCO in Guayanilla P.R. with a storage capacity of 600,000 barrels.

Best Petroleum enters into a JV Agreement with global trading house Trafigura to lease fuel storage facilities from the local government in Guaynabo P.R. (Cataño) with a storage capacity of 300,000 barrels.

Best Petroleum acquires the exclusive rights to market the GULF fuel brand in Puerto Rico. Best rapidly implements the GULF branded program branding more than 150 independent stations in less than 5 years.
