Chevron Corp halted its 2015 share repurchase program on Friday, a move designed to conserve cash amid tumbling oil prices and its latest cost-cutting step after slashing capital spending. In announcing the buyback curtailment, Chevron Chief Financial Officer Pat Yarrington, on the call, cited "the change in market conditions," a reference to the roughly 60 percent drop in crude oil prices since last June. Despite the cutbacks, Chief Executive Officer John Watson stressed that Chevron's dividend, currently $1.07 per quarter, remained the "highest priority" for the company's balance sheet. Earlier Friday, Chevron said it would cut 2015 capital expenditures by 13 percent.
