Chevron is one of the world's leading integrated energy companies, with subsidiaries that conduct business worldwide. The company is involved in virtually every facet of the energy industry. Chevron explores for, produces and transports crude oil and natural gas; refines, markets and distributes transportation fuels and lubricants; manufactures and sells petrochemical products; generates power and produces geothermal energy; and develops the energy resources of the future, including biofuels.


Chevron Canada Limited (Upstream) has been active in Canada for more than 75 years. Since our arrival in Alberta in 1938, our company has established a proud legacy of exploration success, innovation and growth. And throughout this time, we have continued to support the communities where we live and work.  As a result, we look optimistically to the future, as we pursue our vision to grow our core assets profitably and position Chevron for new legacy assets in frontier regions and emerging unconventional resource plays.


Chevron’s existing assets in Canada include a 26.9 percent and 26.6 percent non-operated ownership interests, respectively, in the Hibernia and Hebron projects offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, and a 20 percent non-operated ownership interest in the Athabasca Oil Sands Project in northeastern Alberta.  


In addition, Chevron Canada holds a 50 percent operated interest in the proposed Kitimat LNG project in British Columbia. On April 9, 2015, Woodside Energy International (Canada) Limited joined the  Kitimat LNG project as a 50:50 co-venturer with Chevron Canada. Chevron is currently the operator of the downstream components of the project, including the LNG liquefaction facility at Bish Cove near Kitimat, British Columbia, and the natural gas Pacific Trail Pipeline. Following an interim transition period, Chevron will assume the role of operator for the project’s upstream resources in the Liard and Horn River Basins in northeastern British Columbia.


Chevron Canada is also targeting natural gas and natural gas liquids from the Duvernay shale formation in west-central Alberta. Chevron has a net 70 percent operated interest in approximately 330,000 acres in the liquids-rich formation and is the operator under a Joint Operating Agreement for that area with KUFPEC Canada Inc., which holds a net 30 percent interest. Chevron commenced an exploration program in the Duvernay in 2011, subsequently drilling 16 horizontal wells and completing 13 wells using multi-stage hydraulic fracturing. In the second half of 2014, Chevron commenced a pad drilling program to evaluate well production rates and reservoir performance.
