Chevron Issues Interim Update For Fourth Quarter 2012

International upstream earnings in the fourth quarter are expected to include a gain of approximately $1.4 billion from a previously announced asset exchange in Australia, compared to a gain of $600 million in the third quarter associated with the sale of an equity interest in the Wheatstone project.

U.S. crude oil realizations increased $0.27, to $97.61 per barrel during the first two months of the fourth quarter, consistent with the typical monthly lag on pricing in the Gulf of Mexico. International liquids realizations increased $1.86, to $100.06 per barrel. U.S. natural gas realizations increased $0.51 to $3.14 per thousand cubic feet, while international natural gas realizations decreased $0.09 to $5.94 per thousand cubic feet during the first two months of the fourth quarter.
