PTT: Brand overview

PTT Public Company Limited, often referred to as PTT, is a Thai multinational oil and gas company that represents a beacon of progress and economic stability in Thailand. The company was established in 1978 through the merger of the Thai Petroleum Authority and Thai Petroleum Company. The abbreviation “Phathana Thai,” from which the name PTT is derived, translates to “Development of Thailand.” The company is headquartered in Bangkok, emphasizing its leadership role in the energy sector.

In the early days of PTT’s development, oil and gas exploration was conducted in remote areas of Thailand. In the 1980s, the company embarked on a path of geographical expansion into other Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam. This strategic venture provided PTT with market penetration in the region and established it as a key player in the energy industry.

In the 1990s, PTT witnessed expansion into various sub-sectors, such as refining and marketing, petrochemicals, and liquefied natural gas (LNG). At the same time, the company has also embarked on research efforts to tap renewable energy sources such as solar and wind, thereby emphasizing its commitment to a sustainable future.

PTT is now recognized as one of the largest energy companies in Southeast Asia, with operations in 20 countries and more than 50,000 employees. The company’s presence is felt in many areas, from exploration, production, refining, and marketing to petrochemicals, LNG, and renewable energy.

In 1978, the merger of two leading oil corporations, Thai Petroleum Authority and Thai Oil Company, formed PTT, marking a new era in the energy sector.

In the 1980s, PTT strategically expanded its operations to other regions of Southeast Asia, thereby broadening its commercial prospects.

In the 1990s, PTT ventured into new areas of business, particularly refining and marketing, petrochemicals, and LNG.

In the early 2000s, PTT demonstrated its commitment to environmental sustainability by investing in renewable energy.

In the 2010s, PTT positioned itself as one of the most important players in the global LNG market, thereby changing the dynamics of the energy industry.

The coming decade of the 2020s is characterized by PTT’s continued efforts to scale up its operations and invest in advanced technologies, paving the way for a promising future.

PTT Logo

The emblem of the Thai oil and gas company is full of bright colors, reflecting both the terrain and the company’s line of business. The main element of the emblem is a drop in the shape of a lotus flower. In its center is a large red dot on a dark blue background. On either side of it are two wavy stripes with expanding middles and sharp tips, resembling petals and colored light blue. On the right side, there is a name consisting of two parts: in the upper line is the abbreviation “PTT,” and in the lower line is “Group.” Both lines are written in italic font.

The lotus-like drop is as if to say, “Hey, we are as natural as we can be in our field.” The red dot and navy blue create a sense of coolness and ocean but also carry energy. The wavy lines next to the drop are reminiscent of the calm after a rainstorm, relaxing yet full of life. The italicized words “PTT” and “Group” are reminiscent of a signature at the end of a letter, giving it personality and showing style.
