Chevron Corporation’s (NYSE: CVX)  subsidiary Cabinda Gulf Oil Company Limited
today confirmed that initial production of liquefied natural gas (LNG) has
commenced at the Angola LNG project. Angola LNG is one of the largest energy
projects on the African continent.

“First gas at Angola LNG is an important milestone in support of our strategic
plan to grow our production,” said George Kirkland, vice chairman of Chevron
Corporation. “This project will commercialize natural gas resources in western
Africa to meet growing demand in the region and internationally.”

The $10 billion project will collect and transport natural gas from offshore
Angola to an onshore liquefaction plant on the coast near the Congo River. The
project has the capacity to produce 5.2 million metric tons per year of LNG,
63,000 barrels per day of natural gas liquids for export and 125 million cubic
feet per day of natural gas for domestic consumption.

“The project represents the first LNG project in Angola, and it is expected to
contribute to the development of Angola’s natural gas industry,” said Ali
Moshiri, president of Chevron Africa and Latin America Exploration and
Production Company.

Angola LNG plans to use associated natural gas produced from existing crude
oil operations operated by Chevron and other partners as well as new
non-associated gas from other offshore fields. The project is expected to
reduce natural gas flaring and greenhouse gas emissions from offshore
producing areas, and support continued offshore oil field development.

Chevron’s subsidiary, Cabinda Gulf Oil Company Limited, has a 36.4 percent
interest in the joint-venture, along with Sonangol with a 22.8 percent
interest and subsidiaries of Total, BP and ENI, each with a 13.6 percent
