With this acquisition, Chevron can market renewable natural gas. In fact, the gas is the result of the production or purchase via a national network of compressed natural gas locations. Brian A. Falik, Mercuria’s Chief Investment Officer, states:

“B6 represents a leading operator in building a renewable natural gas network, and Mercuria is pleased to help the company transition from a stand-alone business to one that can contribute to Chevron’s growth.
