Chevron spent $2.99M in 3Q on lobbying

Chevron Corp. spent $2.99 million in the third quarter to lobby the federal government on the U.S. moratorium on deepwater drilling and other issues, according to a disclosure report.

That's up slightly from the $2.7 million that the San Ramon, Calif., oil giant spent in the year-ago period, but less than the $3.92 million it spent in the second quarter. Chevron also lobbied the federal government on legislation involving climate legislation, renewable fuels standards, and measures that would promote the use of natural gas vehicles, according to the report filed on Oct. 20.

Chevron has several exploration projects in the Gulf of Mexico. Like its peers, the company was forced to put some of its plans on hold this summer as the U.S. investigated the failed BP well that killed 11 people and spewed 172 million gallons of crude into the sea. The moratorium lasted for several months, halting most exploration projects in the U.S. waters.

In the July-to-September period, Chevron lobbied Congress, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Security Council, the Executive Office of the President, the Office of Management and Budget, the Treasury and Interior departments, according to the report filed with the House clerk's office.
