- Labor costs have more than doubled in the last 10 years, creating a “new reality” for energy producers and consumers who will pay more for fuel, Chevron (CVX +0.7%) CEO John Watson says at the CERAWeek conference.
- Among the rising costs have been those for offshore development, which now reaches into waters that are deeper and more obscure than were possible a decade ago; costs for offshore rigs have climbed more than five-fold in the last 10 years, Watson says.
- The CEO also praises today's court ruling that a $9.5B judgment against CVX made by courts in Ecuador was fraudulent, saying the judgment from a reputable court in the U.S. will help prevent enforcement actions elsewhere.
