Chevron’s fleet has provided a vital link between our operations and the marketplace for more than 120 years. Today, Chevron Shipping Company is an industry leader in safely and reliably transporting crude oil, liquefied natural gas (LNG) and refined products that power the world.
safe and reliable delivery of LNG
The Asia Excellence is one of our new, technologically advanced LNG ships that support Chevron’s growing global LNG leadership position. Seen here traveling to deliver LNG to one of Chevron’s customers in Asia, each of our LNG ships can hold approximately 160,000 cubic meters of LNG at the necessary -260 degrees Fahrenheit (-162 degrees Celsius) as it travels across the oceans.
big ships, even bigger impact
The immense size of our Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs) helps lower the total cost per delivered barrel of crude oil. This way we can realize economies of scale and deliver affordable energy.

i am...a ship captain
The “Day in the Life” series showcases our Human Energy at work across the breadth of our businesses. In this installment, we gain the insights of a captain of one of our newest LNG carriers.
diversity and inclusion on board
Diversity and inclusion are a core value of The Chevron Way. There are few better examples of those values than the diversity and inclusiveness embodied by the crews of our ships. Crewmembers come from different countries and cultures and speak many different languages. Their team dynamic reflects the unique talents, experiences and ideas each crewmember contributes.
feeding the crew
Some of our mariners call it the “most difficult job on the ship.” The chief steward and members of a ship’s galley department have the challenging task of preparing and serving satisfying and nutritious meals that accommodate the varied tastes of a diverse crew.
Our modern ships are equipped with state-of-the-art navigation systems and equipment that are operated by well-trained and experienced professional mariners. But we still practice centuries-old seafaring skills such as fixing the position of the ship with the use of a sextant and line-of-site methods that are tried and true.
the ties that bind
Tides, currents, winds and weather all affect a ship’s position in the water. When a ship is moored at a quay or terminal, mooring lines must be closely monitored and periodically adjusted to ensure they don’t become too slack or too tight. Seasoned officers and crew use special sensors to monitor mooring line tension and adjust the lines so the ship remains safely in position.
