Reported last week on the company’s Facebook page, Chevron Geothermal Philippines is celebrating its 40th year of operation in the Philippines.
Chevron has partnered with the Philippines since 1971—first as Philippine Geothermal Inc., then Unocal Philippines Inc. in 2004, and now as CGPHI since 2006. In that time, Chevron has become the world’s largest producer of geothermal energy.
“Our 40 years of partnership with stakeholders is a testament to the significant role we have played in delivering energy where we work,” said Jeff Shellebarger, managing director of Chevron’s IndoAsia business unit. “Working together, we help generate not only essential power to our communities but also to the industrial and commercial customers that drive the nation’s economic growth.”
To commemorate the event, employees at Mak-Ban Field helped construct 13 new homes for families displaced by Typhoon Ondoy. Tiwi employees celebrated with a community fun run and after-party. In addition, an anniversary book was created to captures CGPHI’s rich history—a testament to “our employees’ legacy of hard work, discipline, integrity and passion for excellence,” said Tony Yee, CGPHI president and general manager.

Congratulations Chevron. Now we only need to get you involved in other countries, maybe even in your home country the United States?
