chevron in houston
Houston is a magnet for DOERS – for talent, innovation and opportunity. It’s called the City With No Limits for a reason and for more than 8,000 Chevron DOERS, Houston is home. It’s where Chevron DOERS work, create and make a difference.
a century of doers
Chevron’s Houston story spans more than 100 years. We’ve been part of Houston’s world-leading energy sector since the first oil strike at Spindletop. In the century since, Chevron, through its Houston predecessor companies, changed the energy game – transforming energy development and redefining what’s possible in engineering. We did that here in Houston, powered by Houston DOERS.
Anthony F. Lucas strikes a gusher at Spindletop, sparking the Texas oil boom. The discovery at Spindletop leads to the formation of J.M. Guffey Petroleum Co. – predecessor of Gulf Oil Corp., a Chevron legacy company.

We celebrate Houston’s diverse DOERS in business, medicine, sports, science and the arts and are proud to support them as they keep DOING what they do best. We believe in DOING our part to serve the city of Houston, its residents and communities.
doers of tomorrow
STEM education is vital to innovation and technology, global economic competitiveness and building a brighter future for our kids. Through Chevron’s STEM partnerships in Houston, the next generation of DOERS is learning by doing– in their classrooms, on the field and at Houston’s own Children’s Museum where they’re discovering science, technology, engineering and math in exciting new ways and with guidance from Chevron volunteers.
Chevron’s support of JASON Learning has been instrumental in empowering Houston teachers and coaches with STEM training and instructional resources that have helped reinforce STEM lessons for nearly 135,000 students in Chevron’s 10 Houston-area partner school districts.
Through its partnership with the University of Houston, Chevron sponsors “Girls Engineering the Future Day” for Houston-area girls, grades four through eight, and the globally renowned Science and Engineering Fair of Houston (SEFH) for some of the world’s top young scientists and aspiring engineers.
