Chevron Budgets 2019 Capex at Upper End of Guidance Range

Chevron (CVX) plans to spend $20 billion on capex in 2019, which is at the upper end of its guidance range of $18 billion–$20 billion for the coming years. Chevron’s budgeted capex for 2019 is expected to be higher than the company’s estimated 2018 capex. The expected rise in Chevron’s 2019 capex reflects its focus on steady upstream production growth fueled by its core projects. In the first nine months of 2018, Chevron incurred capex of $14.3 billion, around 5% above its 2018 budgeted capex.
