Chevron is a major partner in Indonesia's economy and has been an active member of the community for more than 80 years. We are the largest producer of Indonesia's crude oil, accounting for approximately 40 percent of Indonesia’s national production.
Currently, we are supported by more than 6,400 dedicated employees and more than 30,000 business partner employees. More than 97 percent of our employees are Indonesian nationals.
Chevron’s first major step in Indonesia energy exploration and production was taken in 1924 when Standard Oil Company of California (Socal), today known as Chevron, dispatched a geological expedition to the island of Sumatra.
Since then, for over half a century, we have been Indonesia’s largest producer of crude oil and major geothermal producer.
Chevron also sells lubricants in Indonesia through our subsidiary PT Chevron Oil Products Indonesia. PT Chevron Oil Products Indonesia sells Caltex® lubricants 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 products with Pertamina, Indonesia's government-owned oil and gas company. We also sell to licensed importers and distributors. Chevron markets asphalt under the Caltex Asphalt™ brand.
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.
