The article presents an overview of the merger between Chevron Corporation and Gulf. The chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of Chevron Corporation, George M. Keller notes that the company's merger with Gulf had many positive points. The two companies are an excellent fit, geographically and functionally, with the single exception of too much market overlap in the southeastern United States. Keller also points out that after the merger, the sources of crude oil will be broader, and the geologists will have a wider range of areas, in which to drill for oil and gas.
