Chevron On Track To Achieve 20 Percent Production Growth Target By 2017

Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) is delivering strong financial results and progressing the projects that will drive the next significant growth phase, executives said today at the company’s annual security analyst meeting in New York.

“Financially, 2011 was a record year for Chevron. We generated the strongest earnings and cash flow in our company's history,” said John Watson, Chevron’s chairman and CEO. Watson added, “Looking ahead, we are well positioned and committed to delivering consistently strong financial and operating performance. For 2012, we have a sharp focus on executing our major capital projects, which underpin 20 percent volume growth over the next six years."

George Kirkland, vice chairman and executive vice president, Upstream and Gas, recapped the 2011 results of the upstream business, which included the No. 1 ranking relative to industry peers in earnings and cash flow per barrel and return on capital employed.

Kirkland also reviewed Chevron’s portfolio and production growth prospects, rounding out the presentation with a focus on the legacy liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects under construction in Australia. “As we start up Gorgon, we will begin seeing the financial power of our LNG investments. These are long-lived assets that will generate significant cash flow for decades.”

Joining Kirkland for the upstream discussion, Gary Luquette, president, Chevron North America Exploration and Production, focused on Chevron’s deepwater, heavy oil and unconventional portfolio. “For years, we have had strong positions in deepwater and heavy oil. Our capabilities and technology make us a leader in these asset classes where we see significant growth opportunities. In our global unconventional portfolio we have grown our acreage position, now holding more than 8 million acres of diverse shales.”

Mike Wirth, executive vice president, Downstream and Chemicals, provided an update on downstream restructuring progress. “Improvements in all aspects of our downstream business are ahead of schedule. We are two years into our three-year plan to improve returns, and we already have surpassed our original goal.” Wirth also outlined Chevron’s targeted growth opportunities, notably in the petrochemicals and lubricants sectors.
