Chevron's CEO is leaving as oil industry faces uncertain future

Low prices forced Chevron and its rivals to slash costs by laying off workers and scrapping expensive drilling projects.

Last week, San Francisco and Oakland sued Chevron and five other oil companies, demanding they pay billions to cover the costs of climate change.

In recent years, ExxonMobil, Royal Dutch Shell ( RDSA ) and Total ( TTFNF ) have all tapped refining execs to take over.

"Chevron has a proud 138-year history of developing the energy that improves lives and powers the world forward," Wirth said.

Chevron said that since Watson took over in 2010 its total shareholder returns, which includes stock price and dividends, have nearly doubled those of ExxonMobil ( XOM ).
