Chevron Leads the Way in Green Construction by Opening the First LEED Gold Certified Building in Louisiana

ST. TAMMANY PARISH, La.--(Business Wire)--
Chevron Corp. (NYSE:CVX) today announced the opening of the
company's first LEED certified building and the first gold certified
LEED building in the state of Louisiana. LEED is an acronym for
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a certification program
of the United States Green Building Council. LEED has a rating system
for new buildings that are constructed to have less of an impact on
the environment and are healthier for those who work in them.

   Chevron's new building, Northpark, is located in St. Tammany
Parish and will serve as headquarters for Chevron North America
Exploration and Production Company's Gulf of Mexico Business Unit
(GOMBU). GOMBU manages Chevron's offshore exploration and production
of crude oil and natural gas located off the coasts of Louisiana,
Texas and Alabama.

   "Northpark is LEED-ing the way for Chevron as the company's first
commercial LEED registered building, and we are proud that it is
certified gold," said Melody B. Meyer, vice president, GOMBU.
"Northpark is highly technology enabled to support real-time
operations for our Gulf of Mexico shelf and deepwater production

   Chevron's new building supports the company's long-standing
commitment to the Gulf Coast and the state of Louisiana. Northpark is
located in a parklike setting, and the 300,000-square foot office
building provides a safe, healthy and productive workplace for up to
750 people. Northpark includes 18 technology-enabled team rooms and
Asset Decision Environments that link Chevron's offshore and onshore
personnel in order to enhance innovation, concentration and
collaboration. The building has an open work environment (including
outdoor work areas), a pavilion, an energy center with state-of
the-art conference center, fitness center and a cafeteria.

   Chevron has approximately 3,000 employees and contractors in the
Gulf of Mexico and is one of the largest producers of crude oil and
natural gas on the Gulf of Mexico shelf. The company also has
facilities in Lafayette, Venice, Leeville, and Intracoastal City, La.,
and in Picayune, Miss.
