John Watson, who has led Chevron Corp. since 2010, is planning to step down as the oil company seeks a new chief executive officer, the Wall Street Journal said, citing people familiar with the matter. While the San Ramon energy giant has not made a final decision on a successor, Michael Wirth, a veteran Chevron employee whose elevation was telegraphed in January when the company announced his promotion to vice chairman, has been seen as a leading candidate. An announcement will probably be made next month, the Journal said. Chevron spokesman Kent Robertson declined to comment on the report. Watson, 60, was named CEO after he oversaw the integration of Texaco and Unocal into Chevron.
