ABOUT CHEVRON ALBAKRI
CBL (Chevron AlBakri Lubricants Company) is a joint venture between Chevron and the AlBakri group in Saudi Arabia.
The company was formed in 2004 to produce and distribute lubricants and related products in the KSA market, with its head office in Jeddah and branches/sales offices and warehouses represented throughout the Kingdom.
During the late sixties, Jeddah Islamic Port emerged as the major trading hub for Saudi Arabia and the Arabian Peninsula. This fact made Abdulkader Al Bakri, founder and chairman of the company to recognize that there was an opportunity present.
So in 1973, Abdulkader founded Alkhomasia Establishment and Bakri Bunker by acquiring a bunker tanker and offering his agency and services to calling and passing vessels.
However, his vision was far beyond providing these services and after a few years, Bakri Trading Company was founded to trade in the physical oil and oil products markets in the same period.
