Chevron Corp. will move up to 800 jobs - about a quarter of its current headquarters staff - from the Bay Area to Houston over the next two years but will remain based in San Ramon, the oil company told employees Thursday.
The jobs - generally, technical positions dealing with information and advanced energy technologies - are all tied to Chevron's worldwide oil exploration and production business, much of which is based in Houston. The company reported the shift in an e-mail to its employees Thursday.
San Ramon will remain Chevron's corporate headquarters, the company said. About 3,500 people work at Chevron's office park on Bollinger Canyon Road. Another 3,000 Chevron employees work elsewhere in the Bay Area, most of them at the company's refinery and technology center in Richmond.
