Chevron in Bangladesh:

Chevron is one of the largest foreign investors in Bangladesh, providing employment for about 2,300 workers and supplying nearly 50 percent of the country's natural gas consumption. The two-year startup of the Bibiyana Field demonstrated our ability to handle complex projects involving many technical, environmental and workforce challenges. To bring the field into production in 2007, Chevron recruited about 2,300 Bangladesh citizens to work on the project. Chevron also produces natural gas from the Jalalabad and Moulavi Bazar fields, both of which produce near full capacity. We are exploring in Block 7 in southern Bangladesh. It is engaged in every aspect of the oil, gas, and geothermal energy industries, including exploration and production; refining, marketing and transport; chemicals manufacturing and sales; and power generation.

That's why they sponsor and support both local and national awareness campaigns, non-profit organizations and athletic teams to make them a known trustworthy name across the globe. Like in this year they have started a new campaign which is for every fill-up of 8 gallons or more, Chevron will donate $1, up to $1 million dollars, to support public education for schools in the cities of Alameda and Contra Costa Counties.
