Analyst Commentary

Wells Fargo Securities (3.27.15)

The sale of a non-core fuel retail business in Australia is consistent with Chevron's stated goals in our view. This is a good asset sale as it is quickly and easily accomplished. There is no negative impact on its oil and gas production volumes or reserves. Retail assets have more than maintained their value even as oil and gas asset valuations have taken a few steps back. The only fly in the ointment is that the Australian dollar is at a six-year low relative to the $US.
