The Permian Basin remains a key source of capital flexibility, and it is a key issue behind many analysts preference for Chevron versus some of the other majors. Chevron’s liquids-rich upstream segment is likely to benefit from higher crude price realizations. This segment is expected to record higher production volumes on the back of major capital projects including Gorgon, and core developments in the Gulf of Mexico and Permian Basin.
