CHEVRON AND KEY VENDORS TO DISCUSS MAJOR COMPUTER IMPLEMENTATION IN KAZAKHSTAN AT SEPT. 23 BRIEFING

    The southwest corner of the Republic of Kazakhstan is one of the most computer-hostile environments imaginable.  Temperatures range from 130 degrees to minus 30.  Sand- and duststorms are commonplace.  Roads are unreliable, and local hardware and software support systems are nonexistent.
    How Chevron, its Kazakhstan partner and three key vendors overcame these obstacles to install a major computer system -- on time and within budget -- will be the subject of an informal press briefing Thursday, Sept. 23.
    EVENT:
    -- Press briefing on implementation of business application system
       in Kazakhstan
    PARTICIPANTS:
    -- Chevron:  50-50 partner in Tengizchevroil, a joint venture with the Republic of Kazakhstan, to produce crude oil in Kazakhstan
    -- IBM Corporation:  manufacturer of AS/400 Model F60 system
    -- J. D. Edwards & Company:  software provider
    -- Ernst & Young:  system implementation consultant
    DATE/TIME:
    -- Thursday, Sept. 23, 9:30 a.m.-11 a.m.
    PLACE:
    -- Chevron, 575 Market Street, San Francisco
       40th floor meeting room
    BACKGROUND:
    In April, Chevron and the Republic of Kazakhstan, formerly part of the Soviet Union, finalized an agreement to produce crude oil from two fields on the northeast shore of the Caspian Sea.  One of the fields, Tengiz, is among the world's largest, with recoverable reserves estimated at 6 to 9 billion barrels.  The 40-year, $20 billion project is the largest joint venture between Kazakhstan and a major international company.
    To support all business management needs of the project -- including construction costs, purchasing, accounting, inventory, and transportation tracking -- Tengizchevroil selected and installed J. D. Edwards software running on an IBM AS/400 Model F60 computer. Representatives from Tengizchevroil and its key vendors will be available to discuss the many technical and logistical obstacles they overcame in the process.
