change text size

Chevron Corporation announced Wednesday that its China subsidiary has entered into production sharing contracts (PSC) with China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) for two exploration blocks in the South China Sea's Pearl River Mouth Basin.

Under the PSC agreements, Chevron China Energy Company will hold a 100 percent interest in blocks 15/10 and 15/28 in the Pearl River Mouth Basin. During the exploration phase Chevron China Energy Company will be the operator of the two shallow water blocks, which in total cover an area of approximately 2,233 square miles (5,782 square kilometers).

"Exploration of these blocks builds on our strategy to grow our business across the Asia Pacific region, where we are developing LNG, deepwater, shale and sour gas resources," said George Kirkland, vice chairman of Chevron Corporation.

"We welcome the opportunity to partner with CNOOC and apply our industry-leading exploration capabilities in the prospective Pearl River Mouth Basin," President of Chevron Asia Pacific Exploration and Production Melody Meyer said.
