Biodiversity, land and water stewardship

Chevron has a 50 percent equity ownership interest in Tengizchevroil (TCO), which operates the Tengiz and Korolev crude oil fields in Kazakhstan. TCO sponsors the Association for the Conservation of Biodiversity of Kazakhstan (ACBK) and its work on the Sociable Lapwing Conservation Project. While this critically endangered migratory bird is not present in TCO’s operational area, it does breed in Kazakhstan. This conservation project is an important biodiversity offset for TCO to achieve no net loss of terrestrial natural habitat.

In May 2022, the ACBK conservation team discovered the bird in locations where it had not been witnessed nesting for more than seven years. The team satellite-tagged, for the first time, an adult female bird in addition to 17 more birds. ACBK will analyse migratory paths and identify where these individual birds spend their wintering time, which will support additional conservation programs, such as nesting habitat protection.
