our history in Brazil
We are a global energy company with a long and robust history in the sector. Our business portfolio includes both upstream and downstream activities. We have been in Brazil for over 100 years, initially selling Texaco products, and since 1997 also focusing on upstream. We currently have interests in 11 oil and gas exploration and production blocks in deep waters off the coast of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.
In Downstream, Chevron has an Oronite plant for additives and petrochemicals for lubricants, in the Mauá Petrochemical Complex, in São Paulo. We also have a stake in the Iconic Lubrificantes joint venture, where we sell lubricants and industrial greases.
