Chevron to build skyscraper in Houston - SFGate

Is it only a matter of time before Chevron permanently leaves San Ramon? Your thoughts?

Well, it makes sense for Chevron to move to Houston given that the oil and gas industry is centered there. ExxonMobil moved its HQ to Irving, TX from Fairfax, VA, and I heard it has a lot to do with being right by DFW so execs can fly easily to its far-flung sites. Perhaps IAH (Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport) could serve a similar hub for flying to oil/gas locations - I've heard they have direct flights to Nigeria and Venezuela because of that.

I've often said that, if you want to advance your career in certain sectors it makes sense to be where the action is.

High Tech - SF/SJ

High Finance - New York City

Oil/Gas - Houston or Dallas

You'd think they'd have done it like 50 years ago.
