Re: Chevron Selling Headquarters In San Ramon

Chevron is paying relocation costs for employees who move to Texas. The company may keep a small token headquarters here, but operationally the company is based in Texas. Perhaps some executives live in San Ramon and want to work from home while also having a nearby office for a teleconference.
