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.

DOWNSTREAM

The table that follows includes industry benchmark indicators for refining and marketing margins. Actual margins realized by the company will differ due to crude and product mix effects, planned and unplanned shutdown activity and other company-specific and operational factors.
