Chevron Corp. will move up to 800 jobs - about a quarter of its current headquarters staff - from the Bay Area to Houston over the next two years but will remain based in San Ramon, the oil company told employees Thursday.
The jobs - generally, technical positions dealing with information and advanced energy technologies - are all tied to Chevron's worldwide oil exploration and production business, much of which is based in Houston. The company reported the shift in an e-mail to its employees Thursday.

Chevron moving 800 California jobs to Texas
The Chevron move has started? Could this be the slow easing out of the CA gasoline market? Looks to me that Chevron is trying hard NOT to shut down their refinery there. This looks like an indirect way of keeping their cost of serving the CA market down.
