Through our subsidiary Chevron Romania Exploration and Production S.R.L., Chevron explores for natural gas trapped in shale rock formations in Romania.
Chevron Romania owns and operates the Barlad Shale concession, a 1.6 million-acre (6,350-sq-km) license in northeast Romania. We have completed a 248-mile (400-km) 2-D seismic acquisition program. In the second quarter of 2014, we plan to begin drilling an exploration well.
Chevron Romania owns and operates concessions in three blocks in the Dobrogea area in southeast Romania—Blocks 17, 18 and 19. The blocks cover approximately 670,000 acres (2,711 sq km). In October 2013, we began to collect 2-D seismic information in two of those concessions.
Through our offices in Bucharest, we engage and partner with Romanian businesses that provide a range of support services.
Chevron sells lubricants for consumer, commercial and industrial use in Romania through authorized distributors.
