About Chevron

What Analysts Will Be Watching

Chevron Corp. is a U.S.-based integrated oil and gas company with worldwide operations in exploration and production, refining and marketing, transportation and petrochemicals. It has large exposure to the Permian and to LNG with the  Wheatstone Chevron LNG Facility production starting in Western Australia

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.
