Technology plays an important role in helping us deliver affordable, reliable energy that fuels human progress and economic growth. Together with the ingenuity of our employees, partners and suppliers, Chevron is differentiating performance through technology and functional expertise.
Our technology and innovation efforts in Australia focus on expanding on our exploration and development success, improving returns and plant performance and minimising personnel risk and exposure.
The technologies we deploy help us to cost effectively find and commercialise new gas fields in highly complex environments at lower costs, and recover more resources from existing fields. They enable us to integrate data and information so that we can manage and develop our assets efficiently and help us advance and develop scalable and economical new resources while reducing our environmental footprint.With Western Australia emerging as a key player in the global LNG sector, we have the opportunity to build Perth as an energy industry intellectual centre of excellence helping to drive innovation, productivity and competitiveness and create new employment and business opportunities. Our success in achieving this relies on sustained collaboration across all segments.
