History of Chevron
The Chevron Corporation's beginnings can be traced back to California in 1879, where oil was discovered north of Los Angeles at Pico Canyon. These discoveries initiated the formation of the Pacific Coast Oil Company. This company later became Standard Oil of California and was eventually renamed the Chevron Corporation.
Meanwhile, in Beaumont, Texas the Texas Fuel Company was formed in 1901. Two years later in 1903, the company began producing kerosene on 40 acres of land in Port Arthur, Texas, where the company was ale to produce 318,364 barrels of oil in its first year . The company was eventually renamed The Texas Company, which was eventually shortened to Texaco in 1959. Texaco, which was then called The Texas Company, opened its first filling station in 1911 on a street corner in Brooklyn, New York to sell automobile gasoline. It wasn't until nearly 100 years later, in 2001, that Texaco and Chevron emerged to become ChevronTexaco. The name was changed again in 2005, and today the company is simple known as The Chevron Corporation.
The company's figures for oil and natural gas production are staggering. In 2006, the Chevron Corporation employed approximately 56,000 people, and it processed around 2 million barrels of crude oil per day while selling, on average, approximately 3.6 million barrels of refined product per day.
The Oil Price Information Service, a source for petroleum prices and information, ranks the Chevron and Texaco brands as the two most powerful brands in the industry. In 2006, The Chevron Corporation generated $204.892 billion in sales revenues, which was a 6 percent increase from 2005's total of $193.641 billion. The company's profits for 2006 were reported at $17.1 billion dollars, which marked a 22 percent increase from 2005's totals of $14.1 billion.
2006 saw the company produce 2.67 million barrels of oil per day and approximately 70 percent of the volume accrued originated outside the United States in over 20 countries. These reserves added during 2006 accounted for a 101 percent production increase. The company's refining capacity for 2006 was more than 2 million barrels of oil per day. The company also has 25,800 retail outlets located in 75 countries.
