Chevron Realigns Its Gas and Midstream Organization
Company consolidates supply and trading functions into single supply and trading services operation within Gas and Midstream organization
Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) said today 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 organization.
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.
