    CVX is positioning itself to be the global leader in developing low permeability oil resources.
    It has an impressive portfolio in North America; is the first mover among global energy companies in Argentina and now sees something valuable in the Ukraine. It will no doubt be a presence in Chinese and Australian projects.
