Chevron seeks increased investment in gas output

 Chevron seeks increased investment in gas output 

Oil major, Chevron Corp says natural gas will play a long-term role in curbing emissions, bucking some environmental groups that see the fuel’s role as a temporary bridge to a low-carbon economy. 

European buyers are signing more gas-delivery contracts of a decade or more in duration as they seek replacement sources of the heating and power-plant fuel formerly supplied by Russia, said Colin Parfitt, Chevron’s Vice President of Midstream. 

He said, “We see a long demand for natural gas. But we don’t think it’s just an intermediate step. We see that as a long-term step.”
