About Us

Pacesetter Petroleum is the leading bulk fuel provider to construction and mining operations in the Yukon. As a 100% Yukon owned family business, we understand what it takes to succeed in the North and specialize in helping our customers meet these unique requirement and challenges.


Since 1998, the company has operated on the premise that size is not a determinant of success. Rather, the ability to adapt to each of our customers’ unique circumstances is most important. The hummingbird on our logo was inspired by this philosophy. Although the hummingbird is small in stature, it is an adaptable flyer that can reach places other birds cannot. Likewise, Pacesetter is well-equipped to deliver fuel throughout the territory to locations not serviced by other fuel suppliers.


Excellence in customer service and distribution of quality products is our teams’ top priority.  Whether we are working with service stations, aviation outfitters or mining operations, we aim to achieve mutually beneficial long-term relationships built on trust and respect. We have established stringent practices to ensure our customers are provided what they need, when they need it, enabling them to achieve their goals. 


The majority of our diesel is transported to Whitehorse by barge off the west coast, while gasoline travels by land from refineries in Edmonton. The base of our operations is located in the Kulan Industrial Area at 7 Laberge Road and head office is at 126 Industrial Road in Whitehorse.



JDS Energy and Mining Inc. has been utilising the services of Pacesetter Petroleum to supply diesel fuel and fueling equipment for our barging operations at McCabe Creek, YT for the past three years.  Pacesetter has provided excellent customer care with on time deliveries and quality equipment.  They also provided the Coffee Project with pumps to off-load at no extra cost when onsite equipment was out of service. 


Pacesetter, through their partnership with a local agent in Mayo, successfully delivered 12 million litres of fuel to the Victoria Gold project during construction, which was managed by JDS. 


Given Pacesetter’s track record with JDS, we would recommend Pacesetter Petroleum for any of your bulk fuel needs.

I work with Pacesetter Petroleum daily exchanging fuel log data to keep our operations running. My experience is outstanding. From excellent communication skills and preplanning for fuel usage and 24-hour emergency calls. I was never left short-handed. We never had any break downs or spills on site and service is reliable year-round. The Pacesetter team goes above and beyond to help us out in any way they can.
