Chevron makes cuts to capital budget

As reported by Reuters, Chevron has cut billions off its long-term capital and exploratory budget after a major restructuring of its operations in a bid to ride out a collapse in oil prices and preserve its dividend.

Chevron, which was among the first oil and gas majors to cut spending plans this year, said it expects total capital and exploratory budget through 2025 to be between US$14 billion (£10.44 billion) and US$16 billion. The earlier forecast was between US$19 billion and US$22 billion.

Despite the cut to the budget, the company expects to raise investments in key areas like the Permian Basin, helped by an anticipated drop in capital needed for a major expansion in Kazakhstan.

The company also set the budget for next year at US$14 billion, the same as 2020, and kept aside US$11.5 billion for exploration and production related activities. Its downstream refining and related operations were allocated US$2.1 billion.
