The creation of Pakistan State Oil (PSO) can be traced back to the year 1974, when on January 1st; the government took over and
merged Pakistan National Oil (PNO) and Dawood Petroleum Limited (DPL) as Premiere Oil Company Limited (POCL).
Soon after that, on 3rd June 1974, Petroleum Storage Development Corporation (PSDC) came into existence. PSDC was then
renamed as State Oil Company Limited (SOCL) on August 23rd 1976. Following that, the ESSO undertakings were purchased on
15th September 1976 and control was vested in SOCL. The end of that year (30th December 1976) saw the merger of the Premier
Oil Company Limited and State Oil Company Limited, giving way to Pakistan state Oil (PSO).
After PSO’s inception, the corporate culture underwent a comprehensive renewal program which was fully implemented in 2004.
This program over the years included the revamping of the organizational architecture, rationalization of staff, employee
empowerment and transparency in decision making through cross functional teams. This new corporate renewal program has
divided the company’s major operations into independent activities supported by legal, financial, informative and other services.
In order to reinforce and monitor this structural change, related check and balances have been established by incorporating
monitoring and control systems.
Human Resource Development became one of the main priorities on the company’s agenda under this corporate reform.
It is due to this effective implementation of corporate reform and consistent application of the best industrial practices and
business development strategies, that PSO has been able to maintain its market leadership in a highly competitive business
For the past 35 years, Pakistan State Oil has been fuelling the needs of the nation. Acknowledged as the leading Public Sector
Company of Pakistan, PSO has been driving the wheels of the national economy and is the first public company to pass the 1

Currently the Company is engaged in the marketing and distribution of various POL products including Motor Gasoline (Moggs),
High Speed Diesel (HSD), Furnace Oil (FO), Jet Fuel (JP-1), Kerosene, CNG, LPG, Petrochemicals and Lubricants. PSO has the
