chevron joins industry efforts to promote low carbon transition and innovation

Chevron representatives speak at the workshop.

On April 18, Chevron had the opportunity to participate in an industry workshop held in Meishan City, Si Chuan Province. The workshop focused on innovation and cooperation in Sichuan and China’s energy transition. The event was jointly organized by the China-US Energy Cooperation Project (ECP) and the Bureau of Foreign Trade Development of Ministry of Commerce, PRC, with support from AmCham Southwest Chapter, Association of Private Oil Companies, and the Meishan California Smart City Research Institute. At the workshop, our representatives briefly introduced Chevron’s business in Sichuan and China and how we are leveraging our strengths to safely deliver lower carbon energy to a growing world, including in China. Representatives from about 10 other companies, which included industry peers such as, ConocoPhillips, Baker Hughes and PetroChina Southwest Oil & Gas Field Company, introduced their focuses on new energies and ongoing projects. In the keynote speech, Kaitlin Oujo, the Deputy Director of the US Department of Energy’s China Office, talked about US clean energy policy development. The other presentations covered highly relevant topics such as, opportunities and challenges of energy transition in China, role of natural gas in China’s energy market, and developments and potential of SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel).

The workshop was informative and insightful, and it gave a broader view of regional efforts, policy and government support for China’s energy transition, where Chevron continues to participate in this transition and provide reliable affordable and ever-cleaner energy for China.
