The Chevron Australia story

Chevron is one of the world's leading integrated energy companies and has been present in Australia for more than 70 years.

With the ingenuity and commitment of thousands of workers, Chevron Australia operates the Gorgon and Wheatstone LNG and domestic gas projects; manages its equal one-sixth interest in the North West Shelf Venture; operates Australia’s largest onshore oilfield on Barrow Island; and is a significant investor in exploration.

With these exciting operating projects and ongoing exploration activities come genuine opportunities for career development and progression.
