Chevron, the nation's second-largest oil company, runs an in-house venture fund with $350 million in investments.
The fund's president told Business Insider that its investments were split between companies that support oil and gas production and those falling within the umbrella of clean energy.
Chevron is not ditching oil anytime soon, which is reflected in its venture bets. But it's also backing riskier breakthrough tech, including fusion.
On Wednesday, the fund announced that it was investing in the fusion upstart Zap Energy.

On Wednesday, Chevron, the nation's second-largest oil company, made a surprising announcement: The company said it would invest in fusion energy, placing a bet of an undisclosed size on the startup Zap Energy.
Fusion, the same process that powers the sun, is about as far as you can get from oil drilling. At first glance, it's also an unusual investment for a company that reaffirmed its commitment to fossil fuels as recently as July, amid a pandemic that sent the price of crude oil into a downward tailspin.
"We'll find ways to make oil and gas more efficient, more environmentally benign," Chevron CEO Mike Wirth said at the Texas Oil & Gas Association's virtual energy summit last month. "It will be a part of the mix, just as biomass and coal are still enormous parts of the mix today."

Chevron's investment in Zap Energy is one of more than 90 bets the oil giant has made through its venture arm, Chevron Technology Ventures (CTV). And that it is wildly different from the company's main business is part of the point, Barbara Burger, the president of the fund, said. CTV has $350 million in investments.
Burger, a chemist by trade and one of the few female executives in the oil industry, said Chevron bets on companies in two broad categories, which it calls core and future.
On a video call Thursday, she told us what kinds of technologies fall into those buckets — and what they mean for Chevron's role in the energy transition.
From fracking to nuclear fusion
Like most corporate venture funds, CTV is set up as a sort of external research and development unit. And considering that Chevron remains bullish on oil, it's not surprising that a large portion of the fund is focused on oil and gas, or what it calls "core" companies.

"We believe oil and gas are going to be a part of the energy system" for a long time, Burger said.
Core investments center around three themes, she said: operational enhancements, or getting more out of the oil field; digitization, such as to promote remote operations; and reducing the carbon intensity of the oil and gas the company produces.
"We look for technologies that we can use in Chevron," she said.
The remaining investments fall within Chevron's future fund, and they look completely different. The company uses it to explore different kinds of energy, and it seems to be a sort of insurance policy so the company isn't left behind in the energy transition.
"We use our investments as really early options to understand the pathways Chevron could take as the energy system transitions," Burger said. "Some of them might have direct intersection with Chevron right now, and some won't."
The oil giant has made bets on a wide variety of clean-energy firms, from the electric-vehicle-charging company ChargePoint to Natron Energy, a startup developing sodium-ion batteries.
"We wanted to understand how money gets made in that value chain," Burger said of CTV's ChargePoint investments.
Then there's fusion, considered a high-risk, high-reward energy source that's largely untested at a commercial scale.
Burger, for one, thinks it has a place within the future energy system because it can generate a lot of electricity without the problem of intermittency — and it's clean. Fusion energy can also provide other services beyond electricity, such as desalinization, hydrogen gas, and steam, according to Chevron.
The company's undisclosed investment in Zap Energy, a Seattle startup, is Chevron's first investment in the technology. The European oil giants Eni and Equinor have invested in the fusion-energy startup Commonwealth Fusion Systems.
Chevron lags behind some of its peers
Relative to its European peers, Chevron has invested little in clean energy, according to data from the research firm Wood Mackenzie. The company has also yet to set a net-zero emissions-reduction target like BP, Shell, and Total.
Chevron has committed to targets for reducing the carbon intensity — or the carbon per unit of energy — of the oil and gas it produces and, Burger said, those targets are tied to the bonuses of every employee in the company.

"We look at it in different time horizons, and our energy transition starts in our core business and decarbonizing," Burger said. "And so we believe oil and gas are going to be a part of the energy system. And we know it needs to be lower carbon."Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: The rise and fall of Donald Trump's $365 million airline
Global Syngas Market was valued US$ XX Bn in 2019 and is expected to grow US$ XX Bn by 2027, at a CAGR of 10.8% during the forecast period.Its main application is the electricity generation and has some heating value.It is a flexible intermediate used for the production of methanol, ammonia, and SNG.The integration of syngas-based processes into present refinery & petrochemical production facilities will not only support to develop the attractiveness of these complexes, but it will also decrease the level of requirement from crude oil for the production of fuels and petrochemicals.Syngas Market Dynamics:The ability of syngas to be made from a wide variety of feedstock, like coal, natural gas, petroleum coke, and biomass is certainly impacting the growth of the syngas market.So, the obtainability of different types of raw materials across the globe has allowed the syngas manufacturers to leverage the option of taking feedstock based on the market conditions, eventually contributing extensively to the growth of the syngas market in the future.The structures of materials in syngas vary dependent leading to the chemical composition of the feedstock.Much attention has been concentrated on reducing the use of petroleum products, like fuels and rising demand for electricity, thus syngas introduces a great opportunity for energy sustainable growths.On the other hand, the syngas market looks certain drawbacks which include the large amounts of preliminary capital investment and funding.Syngas Market Segmentation:By the application, the chemicals segment held the largest market share of the global syngas market in 2019, thanks to the demand for chemicals for the production of syngas from methanol, ammonia, and Fischer-tropsch synthesis products, for instance, the methanol is used as fuel plus feedstock, which makes it the most important chemical from synthesis.
