About us

We’re specialist diesel suppliers, providing an end-to-end offering.

Our approach is one of partnership. Reputable, reliable and resourceful, we aim to consistently be the best we can be and a clear choice for our customers.


We are results-driven and impact-led, with management taking hands-on approach to ensuring that we provide services that exceed your expectations.


As South Africa’s energy requirements change, the need for fuel – especially diesel – is growing. With more fleet on the ground, business owners need affordable diesel solutions to ensure wheels keep turning. Velar Petroleum takes pride in creating an efficient and cost-effective diesel supply process for you. We manage  your systems and procedures from beginning to end, giving you the peace of mind needed to  focus on running your business.

We’re a proudly level one B-BBEE company – with a diverse multi-cultural team that reflects the true potential of our people and country.


We actively support youth and women to pursue a meaningful career as part of our team, and are invested in the growth and development of each of our staff members.


Wherever possible, we employ locally from your surrounding communities on our projects. This ensures the impact of your investment in construction or depot management can be felt and experienced where it matters most.
