2006 Letter to SEC on Chevron Misinformation Campaign

Amazon Watch
28 February 2006

This letter from Amazon Watch, a follow-up to a letter to the SEC about Chevron's failure to disclose its potential Ecuador liability to shareholders, warns the SEC of a misleading public relations campaign by Chevron intended to keep investors and the public in the dark. In the PR blitz in question, Chevron painted a very inaccurate picture of the results from the judicial inspection at the Sacha-53 well site, in order to downplay the significance of the evidence against the company.
