ABOUT THIS PROSPECTUS
     This prospectus is part of a “shelf” registration statement that Chevron and Chevron Funding Corporation have filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, which we refer to herein as the Commission. By using a shelf registration statement, Chevron or Chevron Funding Corporation may sell debt securities in one or more offerings.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT RELEVANT TO FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION
FOR THE PURPOSE OF “SAFE HARBOR” PROVISIONS OF THE
PRIVATE SECURITIES LITIGATION REFORM ACT OF 1995
     This prospectus and any accompanying prospectus supplement contains, or incorporates by reference, forward-looking statements relating to Chevron’s operations that are based on management’s current expectations, estimates and projections about the petroleum, chemicals and other energy-related industries. Words such as “anticipates,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “targets,” “projects,” “believes,” “seeks,” “schedules,” “estimates,” “budgets” and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond the company’s control and are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking statements. The reader should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this report. Unless legally required, Chevron undertakes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
     Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements are: changing crude-oil and natural-gas prices; changing refining, marketing and chemical margins; actions of competitors or regulators; timing of exploration expenses; timing of crude-oil liftings; the competitiveness of alternate-energy sources or product substitutes; technological developments; the results of operations and financial condition of equity affiliates; the inability or failure of Chevron’s joint-venture partners to fund their share of operations and development activities; the potential failure to achieve expected net production from existing and future crude-oil and natural-gas development projects; potential delays in the development, construction or start-up of planned projects; the potential disruption or interruption of Chevron’s net production or manufacturing facilities or delivery/transportation networks due to war, accidents, political events, civil unrest, severe weather or crude-oil production quotas that might be imposed by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries; the potential liability for remedial actions or assessments under existing or future environmental regulations and litigation; significant investment or product changes under existing or future environmental statutes, regulations and litigation; the potential liability resulting from other pending or future litigation; Chevron’s future acquisition or disposition of assets and gains and losses from asset dispositions or impairments; government-mandated sales, divestitures, recapitalizations, industry-specific taxes, changes in fiscal terms or restrictions on scope of Chevron’s operations; foreign currency movements compared with the U.S. dollar; the effects of changed accounting rules under generally accepted accounting principles promulgated by rule-setting bodies; and the factors set forth in the section titled “Risk Factors” in any accompanying prospectus supplement and in any documents incorporated by reference in this prospectus. In addition, such statements could be affected by general domestic and international economic and political conditions. Unpredictable or unknown factors not discussed in this prospectus or in any accompanying prospectus supplement or any documents incorporated by reference in this prospectus could also have material adverse effects on forward-looking statements.

DESCRIPTION OF THE INDENTURES
     The following description of the indentures is only a summary. A copy of each indenture is filed as an exhibit to the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part. We encourage you to read each indenture in its entirety.
General
     Chevron may issue securities from time to time under an Indenture dated as of June 15, 1995, as supplemented by the Second Supplemental Indenture, dated as of March 3, 2009, each being between Chevron and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (as successor to The Bank of New York, as successor to JPMorgan Chase Bank, as successor to The Chase Manhattan Bank, as successor to Chemical Bank), as trustee, and which are collectively referred to in this prospectus as the Chevron indenture. Chevron Funding Corporation may issue securities from time to time under an Indenture dated as of August 15, 2003 among Chevron, as guarantor, Chevron Funding Corporation and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (as successor to The Bank of New York, as successor to JPMorgan Chase Bank), as trustee, and which is referred to in this prospectus as the Chevron Funding Corporation indenture. The Chevron Funding Corporation indenture, together with the Chevron indenture, are referred to collectively in this prospectus as the indentures.
     The following terms apply to securities issued under any of the indentures. Terms of the indentures which apply only to securities issued by Chevron Funding Corporation appear below, under “The Chevron Funding Corporation Indenture.”
     Covenants of Chevron
     Capitalized terms used in the following description are defined terms. The definitions of these terms are located under “—Definitions applicable to covenants.”
     Corporate existence
     In each indenture, Chevron agrees that, so long as securities are outstanding under the indenture, Chevron will not sell substantially all of its assets, dissolve, or consolidate or merge with any corporation unless the purchaser of the assets or the surviving company in any merger or consolidation:
    is incorporated and existing under the laws of one of the states of the United States of America;
 
    assumes Chevron’s obligations under the indenture and the securities issued under the indenture; and
 
    is not, after the sale, merger or consolidation, in default under any provision of the indenture.
     Securities to be secured in certain events
     In each indenture, Chevron agrees that prior to consummating any consolidation or merger that would subject any Principal Property to any mortgage, security interest, pledge, lien or other encumbrance, it will secure all securities outstanding under the indenture equally and ratably with the debt or other obligation secured by the encumbrance resulting from the consolidation or merger. Chevron may also secure, together with the securities issued under the indenture, any of its other indebtedness or any indebtedness it guarantees that ranks equally with securities issued under the indenture. This covenant does not apply to debts or obligations that Chevron or any Restricted Subsidiary could have incurred without securing securities issued under the indenture pursuant to the covenant “Limitation on liens,” described in this prospectus.

6



 

     Limitations on liens
     In each indenture, Chevron agrees that it will not, and it will not permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, issue, assume or guarantee any debt secured by a mortgage, pledge or lien on any Property, without effectively providing that the securities outstanding under that indenture shall be equally and ratably secured. Chevron may also secure, together with the securities issued under that indenture, any of its other indebtedness or any indebtedness it guarantees that ranks equally with securities issued under that indenture. This covenant does not apply to debt secured by:
    liens on Property of any corporation existing at the time the corporation becomes a Restricted Subsidiary;
 
    liens on Property existing at the time Chevron acquired the Property;
 
    liens on Property that secure debt incurred for the payment of all or any part of the purchase price of the Property;
 
    liens on Property that secure a debt incurred prior to, at the time of or within two years after the acquisition of the Property for the purpose of financing all or any part of the purchase price of the Property;
 
    liens on Property to secure a debt incurred to fund all or any part of the cost of exploration, drilling or development of the Property or the cost of improvements to the Property;
 
    liens that secure debt owing by a Restricted Subsidiary to Chevron or any subsidiary of Chevron;
 
    liens on personal property, other than shares of stock or indebtedness of any Restricted Subsidiary, to secure loans maturing in less than one year;
 
    liens on Property to secure debt incurred in connection with any financing done in accordance with the provisions of section 103 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended; or
 
    any extension, renewal or replacement, in whole or in part, of any lien referred to in the above list or any debt secured by a lien referred to in the above list.
     For purposes of this covenant, the following types of transactions are deemed not to create debt secured by a lien:
    the sale or other transfer of oil, gas or other minerals in place for a period of time until, or in an amount such that, the purchaser will realize from the sale or transfer a specified amount of money, however determined, or a specified amount of the minerals, or the sale or other transfer of any other interest in property of the character commonly referred to as a “production payment”; and
 
    the mortgage or pledge of any property of Chevron or any Subsidiary in favor of the United States, or any state, or any department, agency or instrumentality of either, to secure partial, progress, advance or other payments to Chevron or any Subsidiary pursuant to the provisions of any contract or statute.
     Notwithstanding the restrictions contained in this covenant, Chevron may, and may permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, issue, assume or guarantee debt without equally and ratably securing the securities issued under the indenture, provided that the aggregate amount of that debt and Attributable Debt with respect to sale and leaseback arrangements does not exceed ten percent of Chevron’s Consolidated Adjusted Tangible Assets.

7



 

     Limitation on sale and leaseback
     In each indenture, Chevron agrees that it will not, and it will not permit any Restricted Subsidiary to, enter into any sale and leaseback arrangement unless either:
    Chevron or any Restricted Subsidiary could create debt secured by a mortgage pursuant to the covenant “Limitation on liens” on the property to be leased without equally and ratably securing the securities issued under that indenture; or
 
    within one year before or after the sale or transfer, Chevron has applied or applies an amount equal to the greater of (a) the net proceeds of the sale of the leased property or (b) the fair value of the leased property at the time of the sale and leaseback transaction to:
    the voluntary retirement of debt of Chevron or a Restricted Subsidiary or debt of a Subsidiary that matures more than one year after being incurred; or
 
    the acquisition, development or improvement of a Principal Property.
     This covenant does not apply to temporary leases for a term of not more that three years or sale or transfer and leaseback transactions involving the acquisition or improvement of Principal Properties, provided within one year before or after the sale or transfer, Chevron has applied or applies an amount equal to the greater of (a) the net proceeds of the sale of the leased property or (b) the fair value of the leased property at the time of the transaction to:
    the voluntary retirement of debt of Chevron or a Restricted Subsidiary or debt of a Subsidiary that matures more than one year after being incurred; or
 
    the acquisition, development or improvement of a Principal Property.
     Definitions applicable to covenants
     Terms used in this description of Chevron’s covenants under the indentures have the following meanings:
     “Attributable Debt” for a sale-leaseback transaction means the lesser of
    the fair value of the property subject to the transaction (as determined by Chevron’s Board of Directors); or
 
    the present value of rent for the remaining term of the lease.
     “Consolidated Adjusted Tangible Assets” means the consolidated total assets of Chevron and its subsidiaries as reflected in Chevron’s most recent consolidated balance sheet prepared in accordance with Chevron’s accounting policies and generally accepted accounting principles, less
    goodwill, trademarks, trade names, patents, unamortized debt discount and expense and other deferred charges;
 
    total current liabilities except for (a) notes and loans payable, (b) current maturities of long-term debt and (c) current maturities of obligations under capital leases; and
 
    deferred credits and other noncurrent obligations, including minority interests (which are referred to in Chevron’s financial statements as “noncontrolling interests”) in consolidated subsidiaries and reserves—employee annuity plans and other reserves which may hereafter be defined in Chevron’s accounting policies.
     “Principal Property” means any oil or gas producing property located in the United States of America, onshore or offshore, or any refinery or manufacturing plant located in the United States of America, in each case now owned or hereafter acquired by Chevron or a Restricted Subsidiary, except any oil or gas producing property, refinery or plant that in the opinion of the Board of Directors of Chevron is not of material importance to the total business conducted by Chevron and its consolidated Subsidiaries.

8



 

     “Property” means Principal Properties or any shares of stock of or indebtedness of any Restricted Subsidiary.
     “Restricted Subsidiary” means any Subsidiary of Chevron that has substantially all of its assets located in the United States of America and owns a Principal Property, and in which Chevron’s direct or indirect capital investment, together with the outstanding balance of
    any loans or advances made to such Subsidiary by Chevron or any other Subsidiary and
 
    any debt of such Subsidiary guaranteed by Chevron or any other Subsidiary,
exceeds $100 million.
     “Subsidiary” of Chevron means any corporation at least a majority of the outstanding securities of which having ordinary voting power (other than securities having such power only by reason of the happening of a contingency) is owned by Chevron or by one or more Subsidiaries or by Chevron and one or more Subsidiaries.
     Any additional covenants
     Any additional covenants with respect to any particular series of securities issued under an indenture will be described in the relevant prospectus supplement. The indentures do not contain any covenants specifically designed to protect securityholders against a reduction in the creditworthiness of Chevron in the event of a highly leveraged transaction. The indentures do not limit the amount of additional indebtedness that Chevron, or any of its subsidiaries, may incur.
Events of Default
     The indentures define an event of default with respect to any particular series of securities as any one of the following events:
    default for 30 days in any payment of interest on any security of that series issued under the indenture;
 
    default in the payment of the principal of or any premium on any security of that series issued under the indenture;
 
    default in the satisfaction of any sinking fund payment obligation relating to that series of securities issued under the indenture;
 
    failure to perform any agreement or covenant contained in the securities of that series, in the indenture or in any supplemental indenture for the benefit of the holders of that series of securities, for 90 days after receiving notice of the failure; or
 
    particular events of bankruptcy, insolvency or similar reorganization of Chevron.
     An event of default with respect to one series of securities will not necessarily constitute an event of default with respect to any other series of securities. If an event of default with respect to the securities of any one or more series occurs and is continuing, the trustee or the holders of not less than 25 percent in principal amount of the securities of each such series may declare the principal amount of all of the securities of that series, together with any accrued interest, to be immediately due and payable. In the case of any original issue discount securities, the terms of those securities will specify what portion of the principal amount the holders may declare due and payable upon a continuing event of default. At any time after a declaration of acceleration with respect to debt securities of any series has been made, but before a judgment or decree based on acceleration has been obtained, the holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding securities of that series may, under some circumstances, rescind and annul the acceleration.

9



 

     If an event of default occurs and is continuing, the trustee under the applicable indenture may pursue any available remedy by proceeding at law or in equity to collect the payment of principal or any premium or interest on the securities of the series to which the default relates or to enforce the performance of any provision of that series of securities or the indenture under which the securities were issued.
     The holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding securities of any series may waive any past event of default with respect to that series and its consequences, except a continuing default:
    in the payment of the principal of or any redemption premium or interest on such securities;
 
    in the satisfaction of any sinking fund obligation relating to such series of securities; or
 
    in respect of a covenant or provision of the indenture under which the series of securities was issued which cannot be modified or amended without the consent of the holder of each security affected by the default.
Modifications of the Indenture
     Without the consent of any holder of securities, Chevron and the trustee, in the case of the Chevron indenture, or Chevron, Chevron Funding Corporation and the trustee, in the case of the Chevron Funding Corporation indenture, may enter into a supplemental indenture to amend the indenture or the securities issued under that indenture for any of the following purposes:
    to cure any ambiguity, defect or inconsistency;
 
    to permit a successor to assume Chevron’s obligations or the obligations of Chevron Funding Corporation under the indenture as permitted by the indenture;
 
    to eliminate or change any provision of the indenture, provided the change does not adversely affect the rights of any holder of outstanding securities;
 
    to provide for the issuance and establish the terms and conditions of securities of any series;
 
    to add to Chevron’s covenants or the covenants of Chevron Funding Corporation further covenants, restrictions or conditions for the protection of the holders of all or any particular series of securities; or
 
    to appoint, at the request of the trustee, a successor trustee for a particular series of securities.
     Chevron and the trustee and, if applicable, Chevron Funding Corporation, may modify or amend the indenture and the rights and obligations of Chevron and, if applicable, Chevron Funding Corporation, or the rights of the holders of the securities at any time with the consent of the holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of all series of securities then outstanding and affected by the proposed modification or amendment, voting as one class. However, without the consent of the holder of each affected outstanding security, no amendment or modification may, among other things:
    change the fixed maturity or redemption date of any outstanding security;
 
    reduce the rate of interest on any outstanding security;
 
    alter the method of determining the rate of interest on any outstanding security;
 
    extend the time of payment of interest;
 
    reduce the principal amount of any outstanding security;
 
    reduce any premium payable upon the redemption of any outstanding security;
 
    change the coin or currency in which any outstanding securities or the interest thereon are payable;
 
    impair the securityholders’ right to institute suit for the enforcement of payment;
 
    reduce the percentage of the holders of outstanding securities whose consent is required for any modification or amendment of the indenture or waiver of its provisions;
 
    change the time of payment or reduce the amount of any minimum sinking account or fund payment; or
 
    modify any provisions of the indenture relating to the amendment of the indenture or the creation of a supplemental indenture, unless the change increases the rights of the securityholders.

10



 

Defeasance and Discharge
     Each indenture provides that Chevron and, if applicable, Chevron Funding Corporation, may terminate and be fully discharged from their obligations with respect to any series of securities issued under that indenture if Chevron or Chevron Funding Corporation, as applicable, deposits in trust with the applicable trustee money, direct obligations of the United States of America or obligations guaranteed by the United States of America sufficient to pay principal, premium and interest, if any, on that series of securities to the date of its redemption or maturity. In the case of securities issued in a currency other than U.S. currency, Chevron or Chevron Funding Corporation, as applicable, may instead deposit direct obligations of or obligations guaranteed by the government that issued that currency. In order to terminate their obligations in this manner, Chevron or Chevron Funding Corporation, as applicable, must deliver to the trustee an opinion of counsel to the effect that the holders of that series of securities will not recognize income, gain or loss for federal income tax purposes as a result.
     Chevron may also terminate its obligations to comply with covenants applicable to any outstanding securities, including the covenants described in “—Covenants of Chevron,” if it or Chevron Funding Corporation, as applicable, deposits in trust with the trustee money, direct obligations of the United States of America or obligations guaranteed by the United States of America sufficient to pay principal, premium and interest, if any, on that series of securities to the date of its redemption or maturity.
Governing Law
     The indentures and each security issued under the indentures are to be deemed to be contracts made under, and are to be construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York.
Concerning the Trustee
     Wells Fargo Bank, National Association is the trustee of the Chevron indenture and the Chevron Funding Corporation indenture. In certain instances, Chevron or the holders of a majority of the then-outstanding principal amount of the securities may remove a trustee and appoint a successor trustee. A trustee may become the owner or pledgee of any of the securities issued under an indenture with the same rights it would have if it were not the trustee. Each trustee and any successor trustee must be a corporation:
    organized and doing business as a commercial bank under the laws of the United States or of any state within the United States or of the District of Columbia;
 
    authorized under applicable laws to exercise corporate trust powers;
 
    having a combined capital and surplus of at least $100 million; and
 
    subject to examination by federal or state or District of Columbia authority.
From time to time, a trustee may also serve as trustee under other indentures relating to securities issued by Chevron or affiliated companies and may engage in commercial transactions with Chevron and affiliated companies.
The Chevron Funding Corporation Indenture
In addition to the general terms above, the Chevron Funding Corporation indenture includes the following terms.

11



 

Guarantee
     Under the terms of the Chevron Funding Corporation indenture, Chevron fully and unconditionally guarantees to the holders of the securities the full and prompt payment of the interest, principal and any redemption premium on the securities. Chevron’s guarantee will remain in effect until the entire principal amount, all interest and any premium on the securities has been paid in full or otherwise discharged in accordance with the terms of the Chevron Funding Corporation indenture. Chevron’s obligations under its guarantee contained in the Chevron Funding Corporation indenture are unconditional, irrespective of any invalidity, illegality, irregularity or unenforceability of any security or the Chevron Funding Corporation indenture. The trustee has the right to proceed first and directly against Chevron, without first proceeding against Chevron Funding Corporation or exhausting any other remedies it may have, in the event of a default in:
    the payment of interest on any security;
 
    the payment of principal of a security;
 
    the payment of any premium on any security; or
 
    any sinking fund payment.
Successors to Chevron Funding Corporation
     All of the rights and obligations of Chevron Funding Corporation under the Chevron Funding Corporation indenture and the securities outstanding under the Chevron Funding Corporation indenture may be assigned and transferred to:
    another person with which the subsidiary is consolidated or merged or which acquires by conveyance or transfer any of the properties or assets of the subsidiary;
 
    Chevron; or
 
    a corporation, all of the outstanding shares of which, other than directors’ qualifying shares, are owned directly or indirectly by Chevron.
Provided that the requirements of this covenant have been met, upon the assignment or transfer, all of the obligations of Chevron Funding Corporation under the indenture and the securities issued under the indenture shall cease and Chevron Funding Corporation shall be released from its liability as obligor and from all other obligations under the Chevron Funding Corporation indenture. In connection with any assignment other than to Chevron, either
    Chevron’s guarantee will remain in full force and effect; or
 
    Chevron will execute a new guarantee agreement containing substantially the same terms as those set forth in the indenture.
Any successor to Chevron Funding Corporation under the Chevron Funding Corporation indenture must be organized and existing under the laws of the United States of America or one of the states of the United States of America. In the event Chevron Funding Corporation assigns all of its rights and obligations in respect of the indenture and any outstanding securities to Chevron, the covenants of Chevron described above under “—Covenants of Chevron” and any other covenants for the benefit of any series of securities issued under that indenture will remain in effect.

     Item 15. Indemnification of Directors and Officers
     Section 145 of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, in which Chevron and Chevron Funding Corporation are incorporated, permits the indemnification of any person against expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him or her in connection with any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding in which such person is made a party by reason of his or her being or having been a director, officer, employee or agent of the corporation, or serving or having served, at the request of the corporation, as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, in terms sufficiently broad to permit such indemnification under certain circumstances for liabilities (including reimbursement for expenses incurred) arising under the Securities Act. The statute provides that indemnification pursuant to its provisions is not exclusive of other rights of indemnification to which a person may be entitled under any bylaw, agreement, vote of stockholders or disinterested directors, or otherwise.
     Article VIII of Chevron’s Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Chevron Certificate”) provides for indemnification of its directors, officers, employees and other agents and any person serving or having served, at the request of the corporation, as a director, officer, manager, partner, trustee, employee or agent of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other organization or enterprise, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
     As permitted by section 102 of General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, the Chevron Certificate eliminates the liability of a Chevron director for monetary damages to Chevron and its stockholders for any breach of the director’s fiduciary duty, except for liability under section 174 of General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware or liability for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to Chevron or its stockholders, for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law or for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.
     The directors and officers of Chevron and Chevron Funding Corporation are covered by policies of insurance under which they are insured, within limits and subject to limitations, against certain expenses in connection with the defense of actions, suits or proceedings, and certain liabilities which might be imposed as a result of such actions, suits or proceedings, in which they are parties by reason of being or

having been directors or officers; Chevron is similarly insured with respect to certain payments it might be required to make to its directors or officers or directors or officers of its subsidiaries under the applicable statutes and Chevron’s by-law provisions.

     Item 17. Undertakings
     The undersigned registrants hereby undertake:
         To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:
     (i) To include any prospectus required by section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933;
     (ii) To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which,

II-3



 

individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than a 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement;
     (iii) To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;
     Provided, however, that paragraphs (i), (ii) and (iii) do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in periodic reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by Chevron pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement, or is contained in a form of prospectus filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) that is part of the registration statement.
     That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
     To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.
     That, for the purpose of determining liability under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser:
     (A) Each prospectus filed by a registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(3) shall be deemed to be part of the registration statement as of the date the filed prospectus was deemed part of and included in the registration statement; and
     (B) Each prospectus required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2), (b)(5) or (b)(7) as part of a registration statement in reliance on Rule 430B relating to an offering made pursuant to Rule 415(a)(1)(i), (vii) or (x) for the purpose of providing the information required by Section 10(a) of the Securities Act of 1933 shall be deemed to be part of and included in the registration statement as of the earlier of the date such form of prospectus is first used after effectiveness or the date of the first contract of sale of securities in the offering described in the prospectus. As provided in Rule 430B, for liability purposes of the issuer and any person that is at that date an underwriter, such date shall be deemed to be a new effective date of the registration statement relating to the securities in the registration statement to which the prospectus relates, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof. Provided, however, that no statement made in a registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement or made in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated by reference into the registration statement or prospectus that is part of the registration statement will, as to a purchaser with a time of contract of sale prior to such effective date, supersede or modify any statement that was made in the registration statement or prospectus that was part of the registration statement or made in any such document immediately prior to such effective date.
     That, for the purpose of determining liability of a registrant under the Securities Act of 1933 to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities, each of the undersigned registrants undertakes that in a primary offering of securities of an undersigned registrant pursuant to this registration statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the undersigned registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:

II-4



 

     (i) Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of an undersigned registrant relating to the offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424;
     (ii) Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf of an undersigned registrant or used or referred to by an undersigned registrant;
     (iii) The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering containing material information about an undersigned registrant or its securities provided by or on behalf of an undersigned registrant; and
     (iv) Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by an undersigned registrant to the purchaser.
     That, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of Chevron’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that is incorporated by reference in the registration statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
     To file an application for the purpose of determining the eligibility of the trustee to act under subsection (a) of Section 310 of the Trust Indenture Act in accordance with the rules and regulations prescribed by the Commission under section 305(b)2 of the Trust Indenture Act.
     Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrants pursuant to the provisions described under Item 15 above, or otherwise, the registrants have been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act of 1933 and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrants of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrants in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrants will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
