Company consolidates supply and trading functions into single supply and trading
services operation within Gas and Midstream organization
SAN RAMON, Calif.--(Business Wire)--
Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) saidtoday that it will realign its Gas and
Midstream business by consolidating the company`s supply and trading functions
into a single supply and trading group within Chevron`s Gas and Midstream

Until now, Chevron`s Downstream organization oversaw the company`s trading
operations for crude oil and refined products, while the company`s Gas and
Midstream business was responsible for Chevron`s natural gas and liquefied
natural gas trading operations. 

"These changes will more tightly integrate our supply and trading activities and
allow our Gas and Midstream organization to create value across our upstream and
downstream assets," said Chevron Chairman and CEO John Watson. 

Watson said that Joseph C. (Joe) Geagea, 53, will lead the new organization and
retain his title as corporate vice president and president, Chevron Gas and
Midstream. In addition to supply and trading, Geagea will continue to be
responsible for the company`s shipping, pipeline, power and gas
commercialization operations. Geagea will report to Watson in his expanded role
effective immediately. The new Gas and Midstream organization will be effective
June 1, 2013. 

"Joe`s enterprise-wide experience makes him well qualified to lead this
organization," added Watson. 

Geagea joined Chevron in 1982. Since the early 1990s, he has held a variety of
executive and management positions in both the upstream and downstream
operations of the company. Previously, Geagea was managing director, Chevron
Asia South Ltd., Chevron Asia Pacific Exploration and Production Company.
Earlier, he was vice president, Upstream Capability, Chevron International
Exploration and Production Company. He also served as president of Fuel & Marine
Marketing and as president of the company`s downstream operations in East
Africa, the Middle East and Pakistan. Following the Chevron and Texaco merger in
2001, Geagea led the integration of the two companies` downstream operations.
