the inland story
Inland Petroleum is an independent, locally-owned, and operated fuel and lubricant supplier that has held a strong presence in Central Western NSW since 1985.
The Principal and Owner, Paul McCallum is passionate about fuel and has a long history of providing fuel and lubricant solutions across Western NSW. Paul's first job was as a weekend bowser boy, he was 15 years old and fuel was 18 cents a liter. Paul loved the fuel game and spent 20 years working for multiple major fuel companies. In 1986 Paul was a key figure in establishing 'Fosters Petroleum' in Narromine. He went on to purchase his first petrol station in West Dubbo in 1991 and soon after Paul acquired Maher's Petroleum Depot in Gunnedah. In 2002 Paul made the decision to bring the two companies under one banner and Inland Petroleum was formed.
Inland Petroleum continued to grow and in 2010, Paul was approached by Shell to purchase their depot at 109 Erskine Street, Dubbo. Shell had a depot without a business and Paul had a business without a depot. It was Paul's wife Pam and son, Drew who encouraged Paul to take up this fantastic opportunity. Paul purchased the site and the business continued to flourish.
The company's head office is based at the Dubbo Depot which oversees four depot facilities and ten retail sites. These depots and sites are strategically situated across Western and North Western New South Wales. Our depots are located in Dubbo, Gilgandra, Gunnedah, and Condobolin, and our retail sites are in South Dubbo, West Dubbo, Narromine, Cobar, Coonamble, Walgett, Gulargambone, and Barraba.
Inland Petroleum is always looking for its next expansion opportunity, as growing is a crucial part of building a complete service network for our customers.
Paul has always had a passion for his fleet of 30 Kenworth Trucks and trailers. These trailers have configurations ranging from 19 metres to AB and BA Triple Trailers. One of Paul's biggest achievements was to successfully design, have approved and build AB and BA Triple trailer configurations to allow us to operate more efficiently. These trucks are beautiful pieces of equipment and have been fitted out with the latest technology by Dubbo-based businesses. They are maintained to a very high standard.
In business for the long haul, Inland Petroleum takes pride in being local, independent and competitive in price. Paul McCallum says "we have a tremendous future in Western and North Western NSW."
