Chevron Announces Agreement to Acquire Atlas Energy

Chevron Corporation and Atlas Energy, Inc.announced today that Chevron would acquire Atlas Energy for cash of $3.2 billion and assumed pro forma net debt of approximately $1.1 billion.  The acquisition will provide Chevron with an attractive natural gas resource position primarily located in southwestern Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale.  The acquisition is subject to certain Atlas Energy restructuring transactions, approval by Atlas Energy shareholders and regulatory clearance.

"This acquisition is the right opportunity for Chevron," said George L. Kirkland, Chevron Vice Chairman.  "We are acquiring a company that has one of the premier acreage positions in the prolific Marcellus. The high quality resource, competitive cost structure in the Marcellus, strong growth potential of the asset base and its proximity to premier natural gas markets make this targeted acquisition a compelling investment for Chevron." 

Kirkland also commented: "The Atlas Energy assets further advance Chevron's global shale gas position, complementing the company's recent entrance into shale gas opportunities in Poland, Romania and Canada."

Gary Luquette, Chevron North America Exploration and Production President said, "Atlas Energy brings to us a highly skilled team with strong operating experience and established land management capabilities.  This knowledge, together with Chevron's technical expertise and global experience with large scale project developments, will create strong organizational synergies."

Atlas Energy Assets

When the transaction closes, Chevron will gain Atlas Energy's estimated nine trillion cubic feet of natural gas resource, which includes approximately 850 billion cubic feet of proved natural gas reserves with approximately 80 million cubic feet of daily natural gas production.   The assets in the Appalachian basin consist of 486,000 net acres of Marcellus Shale; 623,000 net acres of Utica Shale; and a 49 percent interest in Laurel Mountain Midstream, LLC, a joint venture which owns over 1,000 miles of intrastate and natural gas gathering lines servicing the Marcellus.  Assets in Michigan include Antrim producing assets and 100,000 net acres of Collingwood/Utica Shale.

Marcellus Joint Venture

In April 2010, Atlas Energy entered a joint venture to develop its Marcellus assets with a wholly owned affiliate of Reliance Industries Limited.  Under the agreement, Chevron will assume Atlas Energy's role as operator with 60 percent participation in the Marcellus joint venture, under the original agreement terms between Atlas Energy and Reliance.  Reliance will continue to fund 75 percent of the operator's drilling costs, up to $1.4 billion.

Chevron Phillips Chemical Advances Plans for USGC Petrochemicals Project

Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP announced today that it has completed several key elements of the feasibility study announced earlier this year and plans to pursue a project to construct a world-scale ethane cracker and ethylene derivatives facilities in the U.S. Gulf Coast region.

Chevron Phillips Chemical’s existing Cedar Bayou facility in Baytown, Texas, would be the location of the new ethylene unit. The company has executed agreements with Shaw Energy and Chemicals to design a 1.5 million metric tons/year (3.3 billion pounds/year) ethane cracker utilizing proprietary Shaw technology.

Chevron Phillips Chemical’s proprietary technologies would be utilized for the construction of two new polyethylene facilities, each with an annual capacity of 500,000 metric tons (1.1 billion pounds). The new polyethylene units would be located either at the Cedar Bayou facility or a site nearby the Chevron Phillips Chemical Sweeny facility in Old Ocean, Texas. A final site selection decision for these units is anticipated during the first quarter of 2012.

Peter L. Cella, president and chief executive officer, discussed the study’s findings during a presentation today at the Gulf Petrochemicals and Chemicals Association (GPCA) conference in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. He also announced that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) greenhouse gas and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) air permit applications for the new cracker would be filed this week. Cella indicated that the project is on track for final approvals in 2013.

“The owners and management of Chevron Phillips Chemical are pleased to have taken these critical steps, and believe that executing this project will benefit our customers, suppliers, local communities and existing and future employees,” said Cella. “It is our opinion that this project offers unique advantages, including co-location of the cracker with our Cedar Bayou facility and other ancillary assets such as our broad feedstock and ethylene pipeline and storage cavern networks, proximity to the expanding natural gas liquids hub in Mont Belvieu and utilization of proprietary technology to meet the growing demand of our customers.”

If approved, the USGC Petrochemicals Project is expected to create approximately 400 long-term direct jobs and 10,000 engineering and construction jobs. “We are pleased that the development of shale gas resources in the United States has set the stage for major petrochemical investment and job creation in our own backyard,” said Cella.

The estimated completion date for the USGC Petrochemicals Project is 2017.

Chevron Phillips Chemical To Build World’s Largest On-Purpose 1-Hexene Plant

Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP will build the world’s largest on-purpose 1-hexene plant capable of producing up to 250,000 metric tons per year at its Cedar Bayou Chemical Complex in Baytown, Texas. Construction is targeted to commence in the first half of 2012, and the project is anticipated to start up during the first quarter of 2014.

The company has executed agreements with S & B Engineers and Constructors, Ltd., to engineer and build the plant utilizing Chevron Phillips Chemical’s proprietary, 2nd generation, on-purpose 1-hexene technology, which produces comonomer grade 1-hexene from ethylene with exceptional product purity.

“Approval of this 1-hexene project represents a significant milestone for our business and it supports our growth strategy as a leader in the production of normal alpha olefins,” said Mitch Eichelberger, general manager of normal alpha olefins and polyalphaolefins for Chevron Phillips Chemical. “Constructing this project is an important step to ensure we meet the growing demand of our global customer base.”

The new 1-hexene unit at the Cedar Bayou facility will enjoy significant advantages in infrastructure, feedstock availability, and operational expertise. 1-hexene is a critical component used in the manufacture of polyethylene, a plastic resin commonly converted into film, pipe, detergent bottles, and food and beverage containers.

The proprietary on-purpose 1-hexene technology is already successfully used at Qatar Chemical Company Ltd.’s (Q-Chem) facility in Mesaieed, Qatar, and will soon be utilized at the Saudi Polymers Company plant in Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia. Both of these facilities are joint ventures of wholly-owned subsidiaries of Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC.

Chevron Phillips Chemical Announces Expansion of Ethylene Production by 200 Million Pounds per Year at its Sweeny Complex in Old Ocean, Texas

Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP announced it will expand its ethylene production by 200 million pounds by adding a tenth furnace to ethylene unit 33 at its Sweeny complex in Old Ocean, Texas.

The Company recently received consent to begin construction from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). The new furnace will achieve lower emissions and incorporate Best Available Control Technology (BACT). Construction is targeted to commence within the next quarter, with an anticipated startup in 2014.

“This furnace addition will provide additional ethylene supply to meet the growing global demand to better serve our customers and provide additional supply prior to starting up our proposed U.S. Gulf Coast Petrochemicals Project in 2017,” said Dave Smith, olefins & natural gas liquids vice president for Chevron Phillips Chemical. Chevron Phillips Chemical’s U.S. Gulf Coast Petrochemicals Project continues to be on track to build an ethane cracker at its Cedar Bayou plant in Baytown, Texas and two polyethylene units in Old Ocean.

While the additional furnace will not add to the nameplate capacity of the facility, the increased operating factor should result in net increase of 200 million pounds of ethylene availability to provide additional operational flexibility and reliability.

The Sweeny complex is one of the world’s largest single-site ethylene facilities and is capable of producing greater than 11 million pounds of ethylene per day, or roughly 4.1 billion pounds annually. “This project and the proposed addition of the adjacent polyethylene units emphasize the importance of Sweeny in the company’s portfolio,” said Wayne McDowell, Sweeny complex manager. “We are thrilled to produce quality products safely and reliably on an even larger scale.”

Chevron Announces Sale and Joint Venture Partnership for Duvernay Shale Assets in Canada with KUFPEC
      Initial Results from the Liquids-Rich Formation Encouraging, Additional Appraisal Underway

Chevron Corporation today announced that its indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary, Chevron Canada Limited, has reached agreement to sell a 30 percent interest in its Duvernay shale play to Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, KUFPEC Canada Inc., for $1.5 billion. The total purchase price includes cash paid at closing as well as a carry of a portion of Chevron Canada's share of the joint venture's future capital costs. The Duvernay is located in west-central Alberta, and is believed to be among the most promising shale opportunities in North America.

The agreement creates a partnership for appraisal and development of liquids-rich shale resources in approximately 330,000 net acres in the Kaybob area of the Duvernay.




"This sale demonstrates our focus on strategically managing our portfolio to maximize the value of our global upstream businesses and is consistent with our partnership strategy," said Jay Johnson, senior vice president, Upstream, Chevron Corporation. "The transaction provides us an expanded relationship with a valued partner. It also recognizes the outstanding asset base we have assembled."

Following the closing of the transaction, Chevron Canada will hold a 70 percent interest in the joint venture Duvernay acreage and will remain the operator. The transaction is expected to close in November 2014.

"We remain encouraged by the early results of our exploration program and view the Kaybob Duvernay as an exciting growth opportunity for the company," said Jeff Shellebarger, president of Chevron North America Exploration and Production Company.

Chevron Canada has drilled 16 wells since beginning its exploration program, with initial well production rates of up to 7.5 million cubic feet of natural gas and 1,300 barrels of condensate per day. A pad drilling program recently commenced which is intended to further evaluate and optimize reservoir performance as well as reduce execution costs and cycle time.

KUFPEC Enters World-Class Shale Production in Canada

Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company k.s.c. (KUFPEC) announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary KUFPEC Canada Inc. has reached an agreement to create a strategic partnership with Chevron Canada Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chevron Corporation, to develop liquids-rich shale resources in the Duvernay basin in Canada by acquiring a 30% interest in Chevron’s entire position for US$1.5 billion, some of which will be paid over time.

The joint venture position consists of approximately 330,000 net acres of Chevron-operated leases in the emerging liquids-rich Kaybob area of the Duvernay play in Alberta. The extensive exploration program completed over the last 5 years has produced encouraging well results.   These wells and a growing number of others in the Kaybob area with a high liquids content are comparable to the best in the US Eagle Ford shale play.

As of October 2014, 16 wells have been drilled, and 13 wells completed using multi-stage hydraulic fracturing.  10 wells are currently tied into the extensive local pipeline and processing infrastructure, with initial production rates up to 7.5 million cubic feet of natural gas per day and 1,300 barrels of condensate per day.   Chevron has now commenced a full appraisal drilling program which will be conducted between 2014 and 2017.   Thereafter, a rolling development is planned, which will see the position developed in phases.  KUFPEC estimates that its share of production will contribute materially to its strategic goal of 200,000 boepd. 

Commenting on the transaction, KUFPEC Chief Executive Officer Shaikh Nawaf Saud Nasir Al-Sabah stated: “KUFPEC is delivering on its strategic targets. This project will provide diversified, material, long-life reserves, production and upside in a low-risk business environment, with strong and stable cash flows for decades to come. We are securing the future of the company.”
This transaction, which will be KUFPEC’s first investment in North America, provides KUFPEC with the opportunity to develop shale technology with a world-class shale operator. Transfer of knowledge and skills to the Kuwaiti oil sector will be driven by Kuwaiti staff working with Chevron on the project in Canada.

The transaction is expected to close during November 2014.

KUFPEC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, is an international petroleum company engaged in the exploration, development, and production of crude oil and natural gas outside the State of Kuwait.  It is currently active in 14 countries with 60 projects in the international upstream sector.  KUFPEC continues to work aggressively towards meeting its targets and achieving its strategy plans aiming to increase its production to 200,000 BOEPD with reserves of 650 MMBOE by year 2020 while delivering value to the Kuwaiti oil sector.
