During the fifteenth and the sixteenth century the states of Europe began their modern exploration of the world with a series of sea voyages. The Atlantic states of Spain and Portugal were foremost in this enterprise though other countries, notably England and the Netherlands, also took part. These explorations increased European knowledge of the wider world, particularly in relation to sub-Saharan Africa and the Americas. These explorations were frequently connected to conquest and missionary work, as the states of Europe attempted to increase their influence, both in political and religious terms, throughout the world.
Our primary activity is concentrated in the United Kingdomin particular, the North Sea, where we have interests in 11 offshore producing fields. We apply our technology, technical expertise and experience to operate safely and reliably, unlock new opportunities, and sustain a competitive advantage.
Other areas of exploration and production in the region include Denmark and Norway. North Sea date towhen we, along with a joint venture partner, drilled the first exploration well. A decade later, our Ninian Central Platform was towed into position — at the time, the largest object ever moved by humans — some miles km east of the Shetland Islands.
We also have interests in seven nonoperated fields: These facilities serve many of our major projects around the world, enabling faster deployment of technology, providing new technology development opportunities and increasing the pool of technical talent.
In OctoberChevron announced it had sanctioned the final investment decision to proceed with the first phase of the Captain EOR project.
Inwe plan to modify the existing Captain facilities and begin a drilling campaign that includes six new polymer injection wells. Chevron and its Rosebank joint venture partners continue to make progress through front-end engineering and design — focusing on improved predictability in cost and schedule — prior to U.
The Clair Field is being developed in phases. Clair Phase 1 was sanctioned in as a single, fixed platform with production and processing facilities. First production was achieved in The project was sanctioned inand first oil is expected in Proved reserves have been recognized for the Clair Ridge Project, which is expected to produce more than million incremental barrels until Cautionary Statement energy is at the heart of everything we do Our success is driven by our people and their commitment to get results the right way — by operating responsibly, executing with excellence, applying innovative technologies and capturing new opportunities for profitable growth.exploration & production in europe For more than 50 years, Chevron has been a major player in developing Europe’s oil and natural gas resources, and we remain committed to the region’s energy future and maximizing the recovery of its resources.
European exploration, exploration of regions of Earth for scientific, commercial, religious, military, and other purposes by Europeans, beginning about the 4th century bce. The motives that spur human beings to examine their environment are many. As the oil price continues to climb from recent lows, there is a higher demand for funding.
However, some smaller players face a challenging funding landscape, according to . European exploration, exploration of regions of Earth for scientific, commercial, religious, military, and other purposes by Europeans, beginning about the 4th century bce.
The motives that spur human beings to examine their environment are many. The following timeline covers European exploration from to The 15th century witnessed the rounding of the feared Cape Bojador and Portuguese exploration of the west coast of Africa, while in the last decade of the century the Spanish sent expeditions to the New World, focusing on exploring the Caribbean Sea, and the Portuguese discovered the sea route to India.
