Chevron corporate report

Chevron corporate report

Report summary

Chevron is on the cusp of a big structural portfolio shift. New long-life assets will inject material volumes and cash flow. The risk profile and returns should improve as capital allocation transitions away from complex mega projects towards short-cycle opportunities, led by an advantaged tight oil portfolio in the Permian. The journey to this point has been difficult. But delivery of Australian LNG is happening. Execution success will lay the foundation for a new phase of out-performance on value and volume-base metrics.
