ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- June 13, 2013

IHS (NYSE: IHS), the leading global source of information and analysis, today
announced that Chevron was selected as the “Best of the Best” among this
year’s IHS SPECTRUM Excellence Award winners based on its innovative use of
information systems and best practices to achieve environmental, health,
safety and sustainability (EHS&S) business goals. Chevron’s team accepted the
award during a ceremony at the IHS EHS&S Solutions Workshop in Houston on June

“IHS congratulates Chevron for showing how enterprise-level operational risk
information solutions can be successfully leveraged across a multi-faceted
global organization,” said Scott Lockhart, IHS Vice President of EHS and
Sustainability. “Chevron’s proven ability to enhance critical decision-making
and achieve world-class performance through a comprehensive strategy for
Enterprise Sustainability Management that drives Operational Excellence will
serve as a model for all kinds of businesses around the world.”

Chevron, one of the world’s largest integrated energy companies, is renowned
for its leadership in promoting a culture of safety and environmental
stewardship through a strong, ongoing commitment to Operational Excellence. In
2011, Chevron’s upstream and downstream businesses both implemented IHS IMPACT
ERM^® software for operational risk management in combination with its own
groundbreaking Data Analysis and Reporting Tool (DART) warehouse and legacy
systems. By creating a unified incident analysis and reporting system that
serves more than 26,000 users company-wide, Chevron has:

  *Enhanced health, environmental and safety (HES) business intelligence
    across the enterprise by providing quality data and historical trend
    analysis as well as greater transparency and accountability.
  *Provided HES key performance indicators (KPIs) for quarterly and annual
    corporate sustainability reporting based on Global Reporting Initiative
    and American Petroleum Institute guidelines.
  *Improved incident analysis and reporting workflows by continually
    standardizing and driving efficiency – e.g. archiving 12 systems for
    Management of Change (MOC).

In 2012, Chevron’s performance in Days Away from Work injury rates (DAFWR) and
Total Recordable Incident rates (TRIR) were among the best of its peers.
Between 2004 and 2012, the company’s DAFWR declined by 78 percent and TRIR
rate dropped 53 percent.

“We are proud to accept this IHS SPECTRUM Excellence Award,” said Bob
Bollinger, HES Global Business Information System Manager at Chevron.” Our
ability to capture quality data and generate critical analysis and reporting
helps us highlight the company’s outstanding incident management metrics to
the investor community…Chevron’s documented leadership in operational
excellence has given us a real competitive edge.”

A total of 23 organizations around the world were honored with IHS SPECTRUM
Excellence Awards in 2013. In addition to Chevron, this year’s winners

feel that will make the portal easier to use as well as technological and
