Chevron sets Target to Increase Production of Renewable Diesel and sustainable Aviation Fuel to 100,000 Barrels Per Day by 2030

  • a statement from the CEO of Chevron
  • How Chevron plans to make this happen by 2030

During its Energy Transition Spotlight, Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) announced plans to invest more capital to grow lower carbon energy businesses.“Chevron intends to be a leader in advancing a lower carbon future,” said Michael Wirth, Chevron’s chairman and CEO. “Our planned actions target sectors of the economy that are harder to abate and leverage our capabilities, assets, and customer relationships.”

To achieve this scale, the company expects to invest more than $10 billion between now and 2028, including $2 billion to lower the carbon intensity of Chevron’s operations.  This is more than triple the company’s previous guidance of $3 billion. “Renewable fuels, hydrogen and carbon capture target customers such as airlines, transport companies and industrial producers,” said Jeff Gustavson, president of Chevron New Energies.  “These sectors of the economy are not easily electrified, and customers are seeking lower carbon fuels and other solutions to reduce carbon emissions.”

“With the anticipated strong cash generation of our base business, we expect to grow our dividend, buy back shares and invest in lower carbon businesses,” Wirth concluded. “We believe a strategy that combines a high return, lower carbon traditional business with faster growing, profitable new energy ones positions us to deliver long-term value to our shareholders.”
