Fortune 500

Chevron took the top spot in profit growth in the refining sector in 2018, with a sharp jump of more than 61% to $14.8 billion. Revenue was up to $166.3 billion. However, the company has also been hit hard by the economic crisis in Venezuela and U.S. sanctions there. The San Ramon-based company is the last major U.S. refiner to still have refining operations in Venezuela and has pledged to stay in the country. Like its competitors, Chevron will also expand in 2019: in January, it bought a Pasadena, Texas refinery system from Petrobras for $350 million.
