Chevron bets on Peak Green Energy

Chevron’s acquisition of Hess follows Exxon MobileThe $60 billion partnership with Pioneer National Resources this month. Rising interest rates are causing consolidation in the U.S. economy, while smaller, less capitalized businesses struggle to borrow. Oil and gas giants are flush with cash due to rising prices over the past two years.
