"As the leading international investor in Bangladesh, Chevron values its partnership with the people of Bangladesh in support of the nation's energy security and long-term economic development,” said Melody Meyer, president, Chevron Asia Pacific Exploration and Production.

“The Bibiyana Expansion Project is a further example of our commitment to invest for the long term and create value for our partners and the communities that we serve."
