big ships, even bigger impact
At Chevron Shipping Company, we strive to power human progress reliably, affordably and ever-cleaner by safely transporting crude oil, liquefied natural gas, refined products and chemicals to help meet the growing global demand for energy. Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs) are part of how we meet this colossal challenge to deliver oil across oceans and seas.
massive for a modern world
The immense size of these ships helps lower the total cost per delivered barrel of crude oil. This way we can realize economies of scale and deliver affordable energy. VLCCs help deliver products to the market reliably, efficiently and at a competitive cost.
