It is an important step forward in our strategy to build core businesses in the region. As a company with a substantial history in Libya, we are also pleased to once again partner with the government and people of Libya in developing the country’s energy resources. We look forward to pursuing additional opportunities in the future."

Adding his comments, John Watson, president of ChevronTexaco Overseas Petroleum, said: "Today’s announcement underscores the continued success of our corporate exploration strategy of focusing on core, high-impact opportunities around the world.
