Chevron is one of the world's leading energy companies, with approximately 60,000 employees working in countries around the world. We explore, produce and transport crude oil and natural gas; refine, market and distribute fuels and other energy products; manufacture and sell petrochemical products; generate power; and develop future energy resources, including biofuels and geothermal energy. 
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% and 26.6% non-operated ownership interests, respectively, in the Hibernia and Hebron offshore projects, and a 20% non-operated ownership interest in the Athabasca Oil Sands Project.  
In addition, Chevron Canada Limited has acquired a 50% interest in the proposed Kitimat LNG project in British Columbia, including upstream interests in the Horn River and Liard basins. Chevron will operate the downstream scope, including the design and construction of the proposed two train 10MMTPA LNG liquefaction and marine export facility at Kitimat, and the proposed 463 km Pacific Trail Pipelines project from Summit Lake to Kitimat. Site clearance for the LNG facility is underway, and FEED work on the LNG facility and pipeline is proceeding. 
Chevron Canada is also targeting natural gas and natural gas liquids from the Duvernay shale formation in west-central Alberta, where the company holds approximately 330,000 net acres of exploration leases. In 2011, the company commenced a multi-well exploration program on these leases to assess reservoir performance and confirm proof of concept for production from this prospective wet shale gas play. Chevron Canada has been encouraged by the reservoir data and production performance achieved to date and is currently advancing an appraisal program to evaluate the potential for full-field commercial development. Earlier this month Chevron announced it has reached agreement to sell a 30% interest in its Duvernay shale play to Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, KUFPEC Canada Inc., for $1.5 billion.
