The Petrocas journey began in 2009, when industry professionals in oil trading, logistics and storage created a diversified company to provide top of the line logistics solutions in the Caspian Basin and Black Sea energy corridors. In short period of time Petrocas managed to position itself as regional transit expert and service provider.
In November 2010, Petrocas acquired a full operating license from Gulf Oil International and launched Gulf Georgia, which a decade later with 150 branded stations and the largest convenience store operator became a market leader in retail sector of Georgia.

Petrocas has commenced its trading operations by sourcing and suppling Caspian origin oil products to end users system in Europe. Petrocas Trading became one of the key suppliers to Afghanistan peace mission.
December 2014 marked another milestone of Petrocas, by divestment 49% of stake and creating Join Venture with one of the world’s largest publicly listed oil companies, JSC Rosneft. Joint Venture has allowed Petrocas Energy Group to boost its trade and supply activities throughout the Caspian, Black Sea and Mediterranean region, simultaneously enhancing other business segments and opening up future expansion opportunities.
