Chevron's response

12 February 2021

Chevron’s affiliate, Unocal Myanmar Offshore Co. Ltd. (UMOCL), conducts business in Myanmar in a responsible manner, respecting the law and universal human rights to benefit the communities where we work. Since 1992, UMOCL has held a non-operated minority interest in a production sharing contract (PSC) for the production of natural gas from the Yadana Field (operated by Total), in the Andaman Sea. UMOCL also holds a minority interest in an associated pipeline company, also operated by Total.

Chevron’s Human Rights Policy remains committed to respecting human rights as set out in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labor Organization (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and adheres to the principles set out in the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights and the International Finance Corporation’s Performance Standards. We condemn human rights abuses. Chevron will continue to work with its business partners, government and Non-Governmental Organizations to foster a business environment that respects human rights.

Through the Myanmar Centre for Responsible Business (MCRB), Chevron’s affiliate in Myanmar (UMOCL) has been working with other international companies operating in Myanmar with the aim to promote responsible investment and locally support business practices that contribute economically and socially to the development of the country. We support the people of Myanmar on their journey to a modern, peaceful, and prosperous nation. We are monitoring the current situation closely and hope for a peaceful resolution through dialogue.
