Chevron Announces $18.3 Billion Capital and Exploratory Budget for 2018


Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) today announced a 2018 capital and exploratory spending program of $18.3 billion. This figure includes $5.5 billion for the company's share of expenditures by affiliated companies.

“Our 2018 budget is down for the fourth consecutive year, reflecting project completions, improved efficiencies, and investment high-grading,” said Chairman and CEO John Watson. “We're fully funding our advantaged Permian Basin position and dedicating approximately three-quarters of our spend to projects that are expected to realize cash flow within two years.”

Watson continued, “With production currently exceeding guidance in the Permian, our 2018 plan should deliver both strong production growth and solid free cash flow, at prices comparable to what we've seen this year.”

Details of the 2018 Capital and Exploratory Spending Program include:
