Chevron Corp. is realigning its natural gas and midstream business by consolidating the supply and trading functions into a single group within its gas and midstream unit. Until now the downstream business oversaw Chevron’s trading operations for crude oil and refined products, while the gas and midstream business was responsible for natural gas and liquefied natural gas trading. “These changes will more tightly integrate our supply and trading activities and allow our gas and midstream organization to create value across our upstream and downstream assets,” said Chevron Chairman John Watson. Joe Geagea is to lead the realigned business.
