Our History

At the triumph of the Revolution in Cuba began an impetuous industrial development that included the oil industry, carried out for the first time by the Cubans in benefit of the town. Starting in 2000, the business reorganization and improvement in the companies of Cuba-Petroleo and in its Main Office began, with several events taking place, among which the following stand out: • Conception and implementation of a comprehensive system for the management and operation of fuels from importation to commercialization. • Application of more modern techniques in the drilling, development, production and improvement of the national crude oil. • Creation and development of specialized services companies that include petroleum services, maintenance, construction, transportation and general services. • Start of exploration in the exclusive Economic Zone of the Gulf of Mexico. • Introduction of Methane Air replacing naphtha as an energy source for the production of manufactured gas. • The production of national crude oil remains high. CUPET's overall strategy is to increase oil and gas reserves, guaranteeing its optimum utilization as a fundamental way to meet the supply of fuels and lubricants to customers and people in a timely manner with high quality and low costs. The strategic lines of action have been the following: - Increase the production of crude oil and gas. - Ensure maximum use of natural gas. - Accelerate the assimilation of the Exclusive Economic Zone of the Gulf of Mexico. - To optimize the refining, adapting it to the consumption structure of the country. - Optimize the distribution and consumption of fuels in the national market. - Develop a system of customer service and people. - Meet the needs of domestic fuels to the population. - Reorder and optimize the logistics of fuels in the national market. - Consolidate CUBALUB's position in the national lubricants market. - Implement and maintain a Corporate Total Quality Management System in the Union according to ISO 9001-2000 standards. - To seek external and internal financing for strategic investments. - Increase the productivity of Human Capital. - Develop information technology implemented a comprehensive system. - Secure basic supplies and supplies in a timely and efficient manner. - Accelerate the process of corporate transformation. - Ensure preparation for the defense of our facilities to make them an impregnable bastion.
