Chevron Starts West Coast Decommissioning Program
In the first of its kind in federal waters off the coast of California, Chevron will be going to record-breaking depths to complete the decommissioning of five oil platforms, with the highest priority on the safety of the workforce and the protection of the environment and communities.
Chevron is leading a team of partners in the first-ever decommissioning project in federal waters off the coast of California — a project that will break records for the deepest full removal platform decommissioning of an oil platform in U.S federal waters.
Like any Chevron effort, the highest priority of the West Coast Decommissioning Program is the health and safety of the workers as well as the protection of the environment and nearby communities. This means working hand-in-hand with local, state and federal governments, along with numerous regulatory agencies.
The West Coast Decommissioning Program is an extraordinary undertaking that will take precise planning and seamless coordination with integral partners. At each step, Chevron’s highest priorities are the safety of all workers and the protection of the environment and communities we serve. Three platforms will break the record for deepest full removal platform decommissioning in U.S. federal waters.
