suppliers in hard hats

Through its investments in U.K. suppliers and contractors, Chevron helps foster local economic development and builds local supplier capacity to meet our business needs around the world.

Chevron is committed to providing full, fair and reasonable opportunity for U.K. industry to supply goods and services and works hard to ensure that opportunities for local suppliers and contractors are realised. We provide a yearly list of potential future contracting and supply opportunities through the Pilot Forward Workplan.

More than 70 percent of the work at Alder, our most recent development, was executed by U.K.-based companies. The contracts provided significant investment in businesses and supported several hundred jobs across the United Kingdom, including in Aberdeen, Invergordon, Leeds and Newcastle.

Chevron North Sea Limited has received the Award of Gold Excellence for adhering to the Oil & Gas Supply Chain Code of Practice for the U.K. Continental Shelf since its inception in 2013. The award is given for achieving Gold Level compliance—the highest possible—for three consecutive years.
