Docket No. C-4023

DECISION AND ORDER

The Federal Trade Commission ("Commission") having initiated an investigation of the proposed merger (the "Merger") of Respondent Chevron Corporation ("Chevron") and Respondent Texaco Inc. ("Texaco"), and Respondents having been furnished thereafter with a copy of a draft of Complaint that the Bureau of Competition proposed to present to the Commission for its consideration and which, if issued by the Commission, would charge Respondents with violations of Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act, as amended, 15 U.S.C.  45, and Section 7 of the Clayton Act, as amended, 15 U.S.C.  18; and

Respondents, their attorneys, and counsel for the Commission having thereafter executed an Agreement Containing Consent Orders ("Consent Agreement") containing an admission by Respondents of all the jurisdictional facts set forth in the aforesaid draft of Complaint, a statement that the signing of said Consent Agreement is for settlement purposes only and does not constitute an admission by Respondents that the law has been violated as alleged in such Complaint, or that the facts as alleged in such Complaint, other than jurisdictional facts, are true, and waivers and other provisions as required by the Commission's Rules; and

The Commission having thereafter considered the matter and having determined that it had reason to believe that Respondents have violated said Acts, and that a Complaint should issue stating its charges in that respect, and having thereupon issued its Complaint and its Order to Hold Separate and Maintain Assets, and having accepted the executed Consent Agreement and placed such Consent Agreement on the public record for a period of thirty (30) days for the receipt and consideration of public comments, now in further conformity with the procedure described in Commission Rule 2.34, 16 C.F.R.  2.34, the Commission hereby makes the following jurisdictional findings and issues the following Decision and Order ("Order"):

Such divestitures shall be accomplished by Respondents prior to or on the Merger Date or, after the Merger Date, by the Divestiture Trustee pursuant to the provisions of Paragraph III. of this Order or as otherwise approved by the Commission.

III.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, if Respondents have not divested the Equilon Interest to Shell and/or the Motiva Interest to Shell and/or SRI pursuant to the requirements of Paragraph II. of this Order on or before the Merger Date:

An extension of time by the Commission under this subparagraph shall not preclude the Commission from seeking any relief available to it for any failure by Respondents to divest the Equilon Interest or TRMI and/or the Motiva Interest or TRMI East consistent with the requirements of Paragraph II. of this Order.
 
E. If, on or prior to the Merger Date, Texaco has executed but has not consummated an agreement or agreements to divest the Equilon Interest to Shell and/or the Motiva Interest to Shell and/or SRI, and the Commission has approved such agreement or agreements, then Texaco shall, no later than the Merger Date, assign such agreement or agreements to the Trust and grant sole and exclusive authority to the Divestiture Trustee to consummate any divestiture contemplated thereby.

Each divestiture shall be made only in a manner that receives the prior approval of the Commission, and, unless the acquirers are Shell and/or SRI, the divestiture shall be made only to an acquirer or acquirers that receive the prior approval of the Commission; provided, however, if the Divestiture Trustee receives bona fide offers from more than one acquiring entity, and if the Commission determines to approve more than one such acquiring entity, the Divestiture Trustee shall divest to the acquiring entity or entities selected by Respondents from among those approved by the Commission; provided further, however, that Respondents shall select such entity within five (5) days of receiving notification of the Commission's approval.

For a period of one (1) year following the date on which Equilon or Motiva stops supplying gasoline under the Texaco brand to any retail outlet branded Texaco as of the date this Consent Agreement is executed by Respondents, Respondents shall not enter into any agreement for the sale of branded gasoline to such retail outlet, sell branded gasoline to such retail outlet, or approve the branding of such retail outlet, under the Texaco brand or under any brand that contains the Texaco brand, unless either (1) such agreement, sale, or approval would not result in an increase in Concentration Levels in the sale of gasoline in any Section of the Country, based on market share data supplied to the Commission by Respondents that is verifiable by the Commission, or (2) there are no sales of Chevron branded gasoline in that Section of the Country. Respondents shall notify the Commission of each such agreement no later than sixty (60) days after the execution of the agreement, including in the notification: (1) a copy of the agreement, (2) the address (street, city, county, state) of each retail outlet covered by the agreement, and the most recent annual sales volume (in gallons) at each such retail outlet, (3) the identity of the branded dealer or wholesale marketer that owns or supplies the retail outlets covered by the agreement, (4) the identity of each Section of the Country in which each such retail outlet is located, (5) the changes in Concentration Levels that Respondents believe will result from such agreement in each Section of the Country, together with the basis for such belief, (6) to the extent known or reasonably available, the annual sales volume and market shares of each of Shell, Texaco and Chevron branded gasoline, and the retail outlets subject to the agreement, in each Section of the Country affected by the agreement, both prior to and after execution of the agreement, measured by volume in gallons sold (or, if volume in gallons is not available, by other standard industry measures), and (7) all market survey data for such Section of the Country obtained from New Image, NPD, Lundberg, or any other independent third-party market surveyor, or conducted by Respondents, together with all other data relied upon by Respondents as the basis for their assessment of Concentration Levels or changes in Concentration Levels. This Paragraph IV.F. shall expire on June 30, 2007.

(1) It shall not be a violation of this Order if Respondents rescind any agreement for the sale of Texaco branded gasoline to a retail outlet that results in an increase in Concentration Levels under the standards set forth in this Paragraph IV.F., if Respondents rescind such agreement within thirty (30) days of being informed by the Commission that the Commission believes such agreement would result in such an increase.
 
(2) In any enforcement proceeding brought by or on behalf of the Commission, pursuant to Section 5(l) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C. Sec. 45(l), or any other statute enforced by the Commission, Respondents shall have the burden of proving that the agreement does not result in an increase in Concentration Levels in the sale of gasoline in any Section of the Country.

V.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that:

A. Respondents shall, within six (6) months of the Merger Date, divest absolutely and in good faith, at no minimum price, all of Texaco's interest in the Discovery System.
 
B. Respondents shall divest all of Texaco's interest in the Discovery System only to an acquirer or acquirers that receives the prior approval of the Commission and only in a manner that receives the prior approval of the Commission.
 
C. Respondents shall, prior to divestiture of Texaco's interest in the Discovery System and subject to the prior approval of the Commission, enter into an agreement with the acquirer of Texaco's interest in the Discovery System for the purchase, sale or exchange of natural gas liquids that is no less favorable for the acquirer than the terms of the Texaco-Williams Contract; provided, however, that the volumes of natural gas liquids to be transported or exchanged under such agreement may be limited to volumes attributable to natural gas production transported by the Discovery System from natural gas producing wells originating from the Relevant OCS Area. The purpose of this agreement is to prevent Respondents from imposing rates or terms for pipeline transportation to markets from the Discovery System's fractionating plant that would impede the ability of the Discovery System to compete for natural gas transportation from the Relevant OCS Area, and to fully preserve the viability of the Discovery System.
 
D. Respondents shall waive and not enforce Texaco's right to terminate the Texaco-Williams Contract pursuant to Section 1.1 of the Texaco-Williams Contract if Texaco owns less than a twenty percent (20%) interest in the Discovery System.
 
E. No later than five (5) business days following the Merger Date, Respondents shall, pursuant to the Agreement for the Operation and Management of the Larose Gas Processing Plant & Paradis Fractionation Facility dated February 1, 1997, and any other applicable agreements, give notice to the other owners of the Discovery System of Texaco's resignation as operator of the Discovery System. Texaco shall resign as operator of the Discovery System immediately after it obtains the approvals required by the Agreement for the Operation and Management of the Larose Gas Processing Plant & Paradis Fractionation Facility dated February 1, 1997, and any other applicable agreements, but in no event later than one (1) year from the date Respondents give notice of Texaco's resignation as operator of the Discovery System. Respondents shall use best efforts to obtain those approvals as early as possible.
 
F. The purpose of the divestiture of Texaco's interest in the Discovery System is to eliminate the overlap of ownership between the Discovery System and the Venice System and to remedy the lessening of competition resulting from the proposed Merger as alleged in the Commission's Complaint.

VI.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that:

A. Respondents shall divest, absolutely and in good faith and at no minimum price, within six (6) months from the Merger Date, all of Texaco's interest in the Enterprise Fractionating Plant.
 
B. Respondents shall divest all of Texaco's interest in the Enterprise Fractionating Plant only to an acquirer that receives the prior approval of the Commission and only in a manner that receives the prior approval of the Commission.
 
C. The purpose of the divestiture of Texaco's interest in the Enterprise Fractionating Plant is to eliminate an overlap of ownership between the Enterprise Fractionating Plant and other fractionating plants at Mont Belvieu, Texas, in which Respondents or their affiliates own interests, and to remedy the lessening of competition resulting from the proposed Merger as alleged in the Commission's Complaint.

VII.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that:

A. No later than ten (10) days after the Merger Date, Respondents shall divest, absolutely and in good faith, Texaco's Overlap General Aviation Business Assets to Avfuel, pursuant to and in accordance with the Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement. Any failure by Respondents to comply with any provision of the Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement shall constitute a failure to comply with this Order; provided, however, that if Respondents fail to divest Texaco's Overlap General Aviation Business Assets to Avfuel pursuant to and in accordance with the Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement within ten (10) days after the Merger Date, Respondents shall divest Texaco's Domestic General Aviation Business Assets, at no minimum price, to an acquirer or acquirers that receive the prior approval of the Commission in a manner that receives the prior approval of the Commission pursuant to a Substitute Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement. Divestiture of Texaco's Domestic General Aviation Business Assets to an acquirer or acquirers that receive the prior approval of the Commission in a manner that receives the prior approval of the Commission pursuant to a Substitute Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement shall not preclude the Commission or the Attorney General from seeking civil penalties or any other relief available pursuant to 5(l) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, or any other statute enforced by the Commission, for any failure by the Respondents to comply with their obligation to divest Texaco's Overlap General Aviation Business Assets to Avfuel pursuant to the Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement.
 
B. If Respondents have divested Texaco's Overlap General Aviation Business Assets to Avfuel pursuant to the Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement, and at the time the Commission makes this Order final, it determines that Avfuel is not acceptable as the acquirer of Texaco's Overlap General Aviation Business Assets or that the Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement is not an acceptable manner of divestiture, and the Commission so notifies Respondents, Respondents shall within ten (10) days of such notification rescind the Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement with Avfuel.

C. If the Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement with Avfuel is rescinded pursuant to Paragraph VII.B. of this Order, then Respondents shall, within four (4) months of the Merger Date, divest Texaco's Domestic General Aviation Business Assets, at no minimum price, to an acquirer or acquirers that receive the prior approval of the Commission and in a manner that receives the prior approval of the Commission, pursuant to a Substitute Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement.

D. On or before the date of consummation of the Substitute Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement, Respondents shall assign to the acquirer all General Aviation Business Agreements used in or relating to Texaco's Domestic General Aviation Business; provided, however, should Respondents fail to obtain any such assignments, Respondents shall, subject to the prior approval of the Commission, substitute alternative agreements or arrangements sufficient to enable the acquirer approved by the Commission to operate Texaco's Domestic General Aviation Business in the same manner and at the same level and quality as Texaco operated it at the time of the announcement of the Merger.

E. Respondents shall include in the Substitute Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement, at the option of the acquirer, a license for a period of up to ten (10) years from the date of such Agreement to use the Texaco brand in connection with the acquirer's operation of Texaco's Domestic General Aviation Business Assets. The license shall be royalty free for five (5) years from the date of consummation of such Substitute Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement, but subject to Commission approval may provide for payments beginning five (5) years after the date of the Agreement and escalating each year until the end of the ten-year term.

F. For a period of six (6) months after the date of consummation of any Substitute Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement, Respondents shall not solicit, engage in discussions concerning, participate in, offer to enter into, or enter into, any contract or agreement for the direct supply of branded Aviation Fuel to any fixed base operator or distributor that had a Marketing Agreement for the sale of Texaco-branded Aviation Fuel in the United States.

G. For a period of twelve (12) months after the acquirer pursuant to any Substitute Aviation Fuel Divestiture Agreement stops supplying Texaco-branded Aviation Fuel to a fixed base operator or distributor, Respondents shall not (1) enter into any contract or agreement for the direct or indirect supply of Texaco-branded Aviation Fuel to such fixed base operator or distributor, or (2) approve the branding of such fixed base operator or distributor with the Texaco brand.

H. The purpose of the divestiture of Texaco's Overlap General Aviation Business Assets, or of Texaco's Domestic General Aviation Business Assets, is to ensure the continuation of such assets in the same business in which the assets were engaged at the time of the announcement of the Merger by a Person other than Respondents, and to remedy the lessening of competition alleged in the Commission's Complaint.

VIII.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that:

A. If Respondents have divested neither: (1) Texaco's Overlap General Aviation Business Assets as required by Paragraph VII. of this Order, nor (2) Texaco's Domestic General Aviation Business Assets as required by Paragraph VII. of this Order within four (4) months of the Merger Date, the Commission may appoint a trustee to divest Texaco's Domestic General Aviation Business Assets. In the event that the Commission or the Attorney General brings an action pursuant to 5(l) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C. 45(l), or any other statute enforced by the Commission, Respondents shall consent to the appointment of a trustee in such action. Neither the appointment of a trustee nor a decision not to appoint a trustee under this Paragraph shall preclude the Commission or the Attorney General from seeking civil penalties or any other relief available to it, including a court-appointed trustee, pursuant to 5(l) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, or any other statute enforced by the Commission, for any failure by the Respondents to comply with this Order.
 
B. If a trustee is appointed by the Commission or a court pursuant to Paragraph VIII.A. of this Order, Respondents shall consent to the following terms and conditions regarding the trustee's powers, duties, authority, and responsibilities:

1. The Commission shall select a trustee, subject to the consent of Respondents, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. The trustee shall be a Person with experience and expertise in acquisitions and divestitures. If Respondents have not opposed, in writing, including the reasons for opposing, the selection of the proposed trustee within ten (10) days after notice by the staff of the Commission to Respondents of the identity of any proposed trustee, Respondents shall be deemed to have consented to the selection of the proposed trustee.

2. Subject to the prior approval of the Commission, the trustee shall have the exclusive power and authority to divest the Texaco Domestic General Aviation Business Assets.
 
3. Within ten (10) days after appointment of the trustee, Respondents shall execute a trust agreement that, subject to the prior approval of the Commission and, in the case of a court-appointed trustee, of the court, transfers to the trustee all rights and powers necessary to permit the trustee to effect the divestitures required by this Order.
 
4. The trustee shall have four (4) months from the date of appointment to accomplish the divestiture, which shall be subject to the prior approval of the Commission. If, however, at the end of the four-month period, the trustee has submitted a plan of divestiture or believes that divestiture can be achieved within a reasonable time, the divestiture period may be extended by the Commission, or, in the case of a court-appointed trustee, by the court; provided, however, the Commission may extend this period only two (2) times. The decision by the Commission to extend the time during which the trustee may accomplish the divestiture shall not preclude the Commission or the Attorney General from seeking civil penalties or any other relief available to it, including a court-appointed trustee, pursuant to 5(l) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, or any other statute enforced by the Commission, for any failure by the Respondents to comply with this Order.
 
5. The trustee shall have full and complete access to the personnel, books, records and facilities related to the assets to be divested or to any other relevant information, as the trustee may request. Respondents shall develop such financial or other information as such trustee may request and shall cooperate with the trustee. Respondents shall take no action to interfere with or impede the trustee's accomplishment of the divestiture. Any delays in divestiture caused by Respondents shall extend the time for divestiture under this Paragraph in an amount equal to the delay, as determined by the Commission or, for a court-appointed trustee, by the court.

6. The trustee shall use his or her best efforts to negotiate the most favorable price and terms available in each contract that is submitted to the Commission, subject to Respondents' absolute and unconditional obligation to divest expeditiously at no minimum price. The divestiture shall be made in the manner and to the acquirer or acquirers as set out in Paragraph VII. of this Order, as applicable; provided, however, if the trustee receives bona fide offers from more than one acquiring entity, and if the Commission determines to approve more than one such acquiring entity, the trustee shall divest to the acquiring entity or entities selected by Respondents from among those approved by the Commission.
 
7. The trustee shall serve, without bond or other security, at the cost and expense of Respondents, on such reasonable and customary terms and conditions as the Commission or a court may set. The trustee shall have the authority to employ, at the cost and expense of Respondents, such consultants, accountants, attorneys, investment bankers, business brokers, appraisers, and other representatives and assistants as are necessary to carry out the trustee's duties and responsibilities. The trustee shall account for all monies derived from the divestiture and all expenses incurred. After approval by the Commission and, in the case of a court-appointed trustee, by the court, of the account of the trustee, including fees for his or her services, all remaining monies shall be paid at the direction of the Respondents, and the trustee's power shall be terminated. The trustee's compensation shall be based at least in significant part on a commission arrangement contingent on the trustee's divesting the assets to be divested.

8. Respondents shall indemnify the trustee and hold the trustee harmless against any losses, claims, damages, liabilities, or expenses arising out of, or in connection with, the performance of the trustee's duties, including all reasonable fees of counsel and other expenses incurred in connection with the preparation for, or defense of any claim, whether or not resulting in any liability, except to the extent that such liabilities, losses, damages, claims, or expenses result from misfeasance, gross negligence, willful or wanton acts, or bad faith by the trustee.

9. If the trustee ceases to act or fails to act diligently, a substitute trustee shall be appointed in the same manner as provided in Paragraph VIII.B.1. of this Order.
 
10. The Commission or, in the case of a court-appointed trustee, the court, may on its own initiative or at the request of the trustee issue such additional orders or directions as may be necessary or appropriate to accomplish the divestitures required by this Order.
 
11. The trustee shall have no obligation or authority to operate or maintain the assets to be divested.
 
12. The trustee shall report in writing to Respondents and the Commission every sixty (60) days concerning the trustee's efforts to accomplish the divestitures.

IX.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, within sixty (60) days after the date this Order becomes final and every sixty (60) days thereafter until Respondents have fully complied with the provisions of Paragraphs II., III., IV., V., VI., VII., VIII., and XI. of this Order, Respondents shall submit to the Commission a verified written report setting forth in detail the manner and form in which they intend to comply, are complying, and have complied with those provisions. Respondents shall include in their compliance reports, among other things that are required from time to time, a full description of all contacts or negotiations with prospective acquirers for the divestitures of assets or businesses specified in this Order, including the identity of all parties contacted. Respondents also shall include in their compliance reports copies of all written communications to and from such parties, and all internal memoranda, reports and recommendations concerning divestiture.

X.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, for the purposes of determining or securing compliance with this Order, and subject to any legally recognized privilege, upon written request and on reasonable notice to Respondents made to its principal office, Respondents shall permit any duly authorized representatives of the Commission:

A. During office hours and in the presence of counsel, access to all facilities and access to inspect and copy all books, ledgers, accounts, correspondence, memoranda and other records and documents in the possession or under the control of Respondents relating to any matters contained in this Order; and
 
B. Upon five (5) days' notice to Respondents and without restraint or interference from Respondents, to interview officers or employees of Respondents who may have counsel present, regarding such matters.

XI.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that within five (5) business days after the date on which the Commission accepts this Order for public comment, but in no event less than thirty (30) days before the Merger Date, Respondents shall notify Shell and SRI of the projected Merger Date and shall serve on Shell and SRI, by overnight delivery, copies of the Agreement Containing Consent Orders and all documents attached thereto, including the Trust Agreement, omitting or redacting from such service any information contained therein or attached thereto that is confidential business information. Any omissions or redactions to such agreements or documents attached thereto shall be subject to the prior approval of the Commission.

XII.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Respondents shall notify the Commission at least thirty (30) days prior to any proposed change in the corporate Respondents such as dissolution, assignment, sale resulting in the emergence of a successor corporation, or the creation or dissolution of subsidiaries or any other change in the corporation that may affect compliance obligations arising out of the Order.

XIII.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that:

A. If (i) the Divestiture Trustee or Respondents have submitted a complete application in support of the divestiture of the assets, interests or businesses to be divested pursuant to Paragraph II. of this Order (including the buyer, manner of divestiture and all other matters subject to Commission approval) at least one month before the deadline for such divestiture; and (ii) the Commission has approved the divestiture and has not withdrawn its acceptance; but (iii) the Divestiture Trustee or Respondents have certified to the Commission within ten (10) days after the Commission's approval of the divestiture that a State, notwithstanding timely and complete application by Respondents to the State, has failed to approve the divestiture under a consent decree in an action commenced by any State requiring such divestiture, then, with respect to that divestiture, the time in which the divestiture is required under this Order to be complete shall be extended for sixty (60) days. During such sixty (60) day period, Respondents or the Divestiture Trustee shall exercise utmost good faith and best efforts to resolve the concerns of the particular State.
 
B. If any Trustee or Respondents are unable to comply with any obligation of this Order, with the exception of the obligations of Paragraph II. of this Order, because of any failure to act or any action by any State or any court pursuant to a consent decree in an action commenced by any State in connection with the Merger, the time in which such obligation of this Order must be completed shall be extended for sixty (60) days. During such sixty (60) day period, Respondents or the applicable Trustee shall exercise utmost good faith and best efforts to resolve the concerns of the particular State or court.

By the Commission.
