Chevron Corporation, despite being in the middle of a major restructuring of both the retail and refinery aspects of its business, still remains the United States second largest integrated oil company. In the US it operates additionally under the brand name Texaco and worldwide produces daily 2.8 million barrels of oil equivalent. (Hoover's)

A key thing to watch with this company is going to be the results of the 2011 acquisition of Atlas Energy. Estimates value the bold move at $4.3 billion and multiple experts and sources agree it has the potential to be well worth the investment with the Marcellus Shale operations still showing their worth. With the hit the company took in 2009 - a difficult year all around that marked the readmission of the word "recession" into the everyday lexicon - and another blow in 2011 following Ecuador's accusations, Chevron's strategy is understandable.

Chevron, with its heavy emphasis on deepwater exploration, is a major player in a joint coalition between itself, Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch Shell, and ConocoPhillips. This impressive association was formed after the BP catastrophe to develop a better system for dealing with any future diasters relating to oil spills in ocean drilling, up to 10,000 feet. (Hoover's)

The heart of the company's business is refining oil and natural gas, and the associated businesses of exploration, production, manufacture, marketing, and transport. Chevron additionally manufactures, markets, and transports petrochemicals, plastics, and related materials.
