TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY ISABELLE WESSELINGH - Chevron representatives stand next to drilling equipment on April 8, 2014 in Pungesti during a press visit to the first shale gas exploring site started by US energy giant Chevron. Chevron has permits to explore for shale gas in northeastern Romania as well as on Romania's Black Sea coast.
