Chevron (CVX) has signed deal with Ukraine for the investment of $10B in the exploration and production of shale gas at the Olesska field in the western part of the country.

Chevron will spend an initial $350M on exploratory work in order to establish the viability of the reserves.

The deal is Ukraine's second this year with a major energy corporation, with the nation forging an agreement with Shell in January.

    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.
