Chevron are preparing to sell their remaining oil and gas assets in the North Sea after 55-years, which could raise up to £791 million.

Chevron is the third largest energy company globally and the American energy giant announced on Thursday their intention to sell, Reuters reported acknowledging several sources.

Chevron started to drill in the North Sea in the 60s and then in 2019 the company pulled out of exploration after the firm offloaded their drilling assets.

The latest plans will see the super major pull their remaining assets which includes a 19.4% stake in the Clare oilfield, Shetland which is the largest in the North Sea which produces 120,000 barrels a day.

Chevron will offload their interests in the Sullom Voe oil terminal which is operated by EnQuest.
