Chevron Corp.'s North American upstream assets in Texas and Colorado earned Project Canary's highest ratings in operational and environmental performance, a joint press release announced on June 29.

82 of Chevron's wells achieved "Platinum" status (to be more environmentally responsible than 90% of operators) and three wells achieved "Gold" status (to be more environmentally responsible than 75% of operators), highlighting the company's continuous monitoring practices.

"Chevron deploys several technologies to detect and measure methane emissions and certified responsibly sourced gas is part of our broader commitment to lowering the carbon emissions intensity of our operations,” Chevron North America exploration and production president Steve Green said in the release. “In addition to demonstrating transparency, an independent assessment provides validation of our current practices and insights to inform and shape how we continue to achieve our lower carbon aspirations.”
