Chevron Writes Down $5B+ in Marc/Utica Assets, Looks to Sell All

In a bombshell announcement yesterday, Chevron said it is writing down (reducing the paper value) of all its shale assets by $10-$11 billion in the fourth quarter. “More than half” of it is a write-down of its Marcellus/Utica assets. Not only that, but Chevron says it is “evaluating its strategic alternatives for these assets, including divestment.” Translation: Chevron has put its M-U assets, all of them (over 750,000 890,000 acres plus producing wells) up for sale. But the bad news doesn’t stop there.
