Chevron is empowering women through a new collaboration in Texas and New Mexico aimed at lowering our carbon intensity and diversifying our supply chain.

We’re working with Siren Energy, a woman-owned company that transports a lower carbon intensity alternative fuel called compressed natural gas (CNG), to power our drilling operations in the Permian Basin.

It’s part of Chevron’s ongoing efforts to use alternative fuels instead of diesel to fuel those operations.

Chevron wanted to diversify its alternative fuel suppliers and learned about Siren Energy.

As fate would have it, it was a mostly female team of Chevron employees that conducted our initial meetings with the company.

We soon realized Siren energy was a match in more ways than one.

“Chevron is committed to lowering the carbon intensity of its operations while also growing its diverse and inclusive supply chain—one that is reflective of the communities where we live and work. And so, working with Siren Energy solidifies our commitments in both ways.”

why it matters

Supply chain instability, coupled with a heightened demand for domestic production, has underscored the importance of reliable energy sources. Our work with Siren Energy is one example of the steps we are taking to respond to that energy demand while pursuing our goals of lowering carbon intensity.

“We see this as a win for everyone,” said Indra Vasquez-Brown, supply chain management category manager in Chevron’s Mid-Continent Business Unit.

“It’s a win for Chevron to work with a company that can journey with us to lower our carbon intensity by using alternative fuels. And this is a win for Siren Energy because it provides the business with an opportunity to grow, expand and further their relationship with Chevron by impacting the future of energy.”

fueling progress

Siren Energy is among several new and existing businesses Chevron is working with that are introducing new ways to produce energy.

  • In the Permian Basin in West Texas and New Mexico, three drilling rigs are operated solely using electric energy.
  • Eight additional rigs are powered by CNG.
“It isn’t easy to put together a business idea, raise the capital and go out and find the customers. But I’m fortunate to have done so with my amazing Siren Energy team. I’m also very grateful that for the past two years, while developing Siren Energy, Chevron has found value in our ingenuity.”
