Chad president orders Chevron out
Saturday, August 26, 2006
N’DJAMENA, Chad (Reuters) — Chad ordered U.S. energy giant Chevron and Malaysia’s Petronas on Saturday to leave the country within 24 hours for failing to honor tax obligations, in a move apparently motivated by a desire to earn more from its oil.
“From tomorrow, the representatives of Chevron and Petronas must leave Chad and close their offices,” Idriss Deby, president of the central African nation, told a government meeting.
The surprise move followed Chad’s decision to create a new national oil company, which it said should become a partner in the country’s existing oil-producing consortium, led by U.S. major Exxon Mobil and including Chevron and Petronas.
Landlocked Chad, which began pumping crude in 2003, produces around 160,000-170,000 barrel per day but most of its people remain poor.
