      全球石油生产商已经加快了向低碳密集型生产转型的计划。股东和政府坚持要解决他们在气候变化中的角色问题,并制定一条到2050年大幅减少温室气体排放的道路。

  雪佛龙概述了发展氢能、生物燃料以及碳捕获的计划,同时重申了到2028年将温室气体强度降低35%的目标(与2016年的石油和天然气产量相比)。

  欧洲石油生产商雄心勃勃地计划放弃化石燃料,大力投资可再生能源。雪佛龙、埃克森美孚和西方石油寻求在支持碳捕获和储存的同时,减少单位产量的碳排放。

  BP表示,到2025年,将每年投资30-40亿美元用于低碳项目,并在未来十年将石油和天然气产量减少40%。荷兰皇家壳牌公司2月份在清洁能源方面的年度投资为20-30亿美元。

  雪佛龙表示,将把可再生天然气产量扩大到400亿英热单位/天,并将可再生燃料产能提高到10万桶/天,以满足客户对可再生柴油和可持续航空燃料的需求。

  首席执行官迈克尔·沃思在一份声明中表示:“由于我们的基础业务预计将产生强劲的现金流,我们预计将增加股息,回购股票,并投资于低碳业务。”

  雪佛龙计划将氢气产量提高到每年15万吨,以供应工业、电力和重型运输客户,并通过与其他公司一起开发区域枢纽,将碳捕获和补偿提高到每年2500万吨。

  Chevron triples low-carbon investment, pledges $10 B through 2028

  U.S. oil producer Chevron pledged to triple to $10 billion its investments in low-carbon fuel and projects through 2028 amid pressure to boost clean-energy markets.

  Oil producers globally have stepped up plans to transition to a less carbon intensive production. Shareholders and governments are insisting they address their role in climate change and plot a path to sharply cut greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

  Chevron outlined plans to develop hydrogen energy, biofuels as well as carbon capture. It reaffirmed a goal of paring greenhouse gas intensity by 35% through 2028, compared to 2016 levels from its oil and gas output.

  European oil producers have ambitious plans to shift away from fossil fuels with large investments in renewables. Chevron, Exxon Mobil Corp and Occidental Petroleum sought to reduce carbon emissions per unit of output while backing carbon capture and storage.

  BP Plc has said it will invest $3-4 billion a year in low-carbon projects by 2025 and shrink oil and gas production by 40% in the next decade. Royal Dutch Shell Plc in February set annual investments of $2-3 billion in clean energy.

  Chevron said it would expand renewable natural gas production to 40 billion British thermal units (BTUs) per day and increase renewable fuels production capacity to 100,000 barrels a day to meet customer demand for renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel.

  "With the anticipated strong cash generation of our base business, we expect to grow our dividend, buy back shares and invest in lower-carbon businesses," Chief Executive Michael Wirth said in a statement.

  Chevron plans to grow hydrogen production to 150,000 tonnes a year to supply industrial, power and heavy duty transport customers and raise carbon capture and offsets to 25 million tonnes a year by developing regional hubs along with others.
