chevron goes for gold

Chevron has been named large company of the year at the Aberdeen Press and Journal’s third annual Gold Awards, which recognise the positive impact of companies and their employees on the north-east of Scotland.

The award was presented to Chevron in recognition of the company’s contribution and commitment to the North Sea, its employees and to the community. Since drilling the first North Sea well in December 1964, Chevron has continued to make pioneering technological advancements to unlock energy reserves and last year invested more than £1 million in support of local community organisations and the development of U.K. talent.

The Gold Award for large company of the year was presented to Chevron Upstream Europe in recognition of its 50 year history in the North Sea.

Winners from the 2017 Press and Journal Gold Awards. Chevron was named large company of the year following its 50-year history on the U.K. Continental Shelf.

Greta Lydecker, Chevron Upstream Europe managing director, said: “I am proud of Chevron’s long history in the U.K. and excited about our future. Winning this award is great recognition of the significant impact that all of our employees have played in pioneering new technology in the North Sea, safely delivering U.K. energy supplies and supporting our local communities for more than 50 years.”

Steph McGovern, BBC presenter and host of the evening, relayed the judges’ comments about Chevron’s application: “The judges were blown away by Chevron’s values, commitment to its employees, its customers and the wider community. A company whose values are at the core of everything they do and never waver, even in the most difficult of times.”
