Chevron. Providing Energy for Human Progress
Chevron is one of the world's leading integrated energy companies. 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. We are involved in virtually every facet of the energy industry. We explore for, produce and transport crude oil and natural gas; refine, market and distribute transportation fuels and lubricants; manufacture and sell petrochemical products; generate power and produce geothermal energy; invest in profitable renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions; and develop the energy resources of the future, including researching advanced biofuels.
Our diverse and highly skilled global workforce consists of approximately 64,700 employees, including more than 3,200 service station employees. In 2014, Chevron's average net production was 2.571 million oil-equivalent barrels per day. About 74 percent of that production occurred outside the United States. Chevron had a global refining capacity of 1.9 million barrels of oil per day at the end of 2014.
We focus on technologies that improve our ability to find, develop and produce crude oil and natural gas from conventional and unconventional resources. We also invest in the development of emerging energy technologies, such as finding better ways to make nonfood-based biofuels, piloting advanced solar technology for our operations and expanding our renewable energy resources.
We recognize that the world needs all the energy we can develop, in every potential form. That's why our employees work to responsibly develop the affordable, reliable energy the world needs.

Air Products touches the lives of consumers around the globe in positive ways every day. The company is recognized for its innovative culture, operational excellence and commitment to safety and the environment. Our aim at Air Products is to develop lasting relationships with our customers and communities based on human qualities: an understanding of their needs, integrity and honesty in the way we do business, and a passion for exceeding expectations.
Air Products was established in 1940 in Detroit, Michigan, on the strength of a simple but then revolutionary idea: the “on-site” concept of producing and selling industrial gases, primarily oxygen. At the time, most oxygen was sold as a highly compressed gas product in cylinders that weighed five times more than the gas itself. Air Products proposed building oxygen gas generating facilities adjacent to large-volume users, thereby reducing distribution costs. The concept of piping the gas directly from the generator to the point of use proved sound and technically solvable.
Today, Air Products serves energy, electronics, chemicals, metals, and manufacturing customers globally with a unique portfolio of products, services, and solutions that include atmospheric gases, process and specialty gases, electronics and performance materials, equipment, and services. The Company is the world’s largest supplier of hydrogen and has built leading positions in growth markets such as helium, refinery hydrogen, semiconductor materials, natural gas liquefaction, and advanced coatings and adhesives.

The AspenTech University Program has been a cornerstone of commitment to the academic community for more than 25 years. By empowering professors and students worldwide with AspenTech solutions, schools can strengthen their curriculum and better prepare tomorrow’s leaders for evolving challenges in the process industries.
This program provides students with insight into the entire lifecycle of a plant with integrated software solutions for engineering operations. The technology enhances their education by delivering the tools they need to apply theoretical concepts hands-on. Students use realistic and practical simulated exercises to solve real-world problems, and gain the critical skills and expertise needed to succeed in the workforce.
It also enables professors to demonstrate the proper tools to resolve critical engineering issues that occur in the process manufacturing industries. Numerous articles and textbooks have been published outlining AspenTech modeling products, and engineering faculty are encouraged to share their experiences as part of an expanded teaching community.
The AspenTech University Program is available to universities that agree to use AspenTech software for undergraduate and graduate student education and research. It is also available for educational use by non-profit “academic” research organizations or institutions that freely publish their results.
If you would like to find out more about the program and how it can help expand the engineering programs at your college or university, please email email@example.com or visit www.aspentech.com/industry_solutions/universities/.
