Employer Profile

With the ingenuity and commitment of more than 4,000 people, Chevron Australia – headquartered in Perth – leads the development of the Gorgon and Wheatstone natural gas projects, manages its equal one-sixth interest in the North West Shelf Project and operates Australia’s largest onshore oilfield on Barrow Island.
