Oil refining and marketing company
In 2015 Chevron sold its 50% stake in Caltex Australia. Australia's largest oil refiner, and operator of two oil refineries. Caltex branded fuel is sold at over 1,100 locations, including over 600 sites operated by Woolworths, where Caltex is the fuel supplier only. Most of their sites were franchises, however Caltex plan to buy them all back by 2020 in the wake of wage scandals. Caltex also supply about 900 independent re-sellers.

This company entered into an enforceable undertaking with the NSW Environment Protection Authority on 30 March 2015 to provide $120,000 to a number of local environmental programs. This resulted from a water pollution incident at the Kurnell refinery (which now operates as a fuel terminal) on 24 March 2014 when oily water was discharged into Botany Bay. It would seem Caltex got off lightly, as earlier reports said they faced fines of up to $2 million.

The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) commenced investigations into this company's network in late 2016 after receiving intelligence indicating an upsurge in compliance issues at Caltex outlets. The report released in 2018 found that 76% of Caltex sites breached workplace laws. Across the non-compliant sites, inspectors found evidence of underpayment of wages, non-payment of overtime and penalty rates as well as record keeping and pay slip breaches.
