Chevron's partnership with the people and the Government of Indonesia can be traced back to 1924, when the Standard Oil Company of California (Socal), now Chevron, dispatched a geological expedition to the island of Sumatra.

Chevron has been Indonesia’s largest producer of crude oil which delivers approximately 40% of national production from its operations in Riau and East Kalimantan and provides electricity for millions of Indonesians from its geothermal projects in West Java. Our total cumulative oil production of more than 12 billion barrels has provided significant benefits to the country for decades.

Through its subsidiaries, PT Chevron Pacific Indonesia and Chevron Indonesia Company, we conduct oil and gas operations. Chevron also manages geothermal projects through Chevron Geothermal Indonesia, Ltd., and Chevron Geothermal Salak, Ltd., in Indonesia.

Our 6,300 highly-skilled, dedicated employees and more than 30,000 business partner employees in Indonesia and the Philippines continue to deliver safe, efficient and reliable energy on behalf of the countries.

Chevron also sells lubricants in Indonesia through our subsidiary PT Chevron Oil Products Indonesia. PT Chevron Oil Products Indonesia sells Caltex®-branded lubricants, coolants and greases across Indonesia through a distribution network. These products serve commercial, industrial, consumer and marine customers.

Through our trading operation in Singapore, Chevron also trades in crude oil, other feedstocks, and finished petroleum and asphalt products with Pertamina, Indonesia's government-owned oil and gas company. We also sell to licensed importers.

We are proud of our legacy and truly appreciate our strong and continuous partnerships with the Government of Indonesia, non-government organizations and surrounding communities, which are the foundation of our progress together to meet Indonesia’s energy demand.
