Breakthrough technologies — including some pioneered by ExxonMobil — have helped keep pace with rising global energy demand by making more energy supplies available, while also reducing the environmental footprint of energy development. Technology is more important today than ever, since a significant portion of the world’s oil and gas resources is located in challenging environments such as deepwater, heavy oil/oil sands, tight gas and Arctic regions, which require innovative approaches to energy production.
ExxonMobil employs the latest generation of 3-D technology, coupled with advanced computing, to create detailed images of the world’s oil and gas reservoirs.
R3M uses extremely low-frequency electromagnetic waves to discern these resistive deposits — remotely “mapping” undersea oil and gas reservoirs with accuracy.
Today, wells can be drilled horizontally as well as vertically, beginning miles from the oil and gas they are intended to reach.
Although the industry has over 60 years of experience with hydraulic fracturing, the growing development of unconventional gas resources has now prompted public interest.
The liquefied natural gas technology has enabled cost-effective commercialization of new gas supplies to a growing world market
Canadian oil sands are critically important to ensuring a secure North American energy supply.
Advances in technology have enabled ExxonMobil to produce offshore oil and gas deposits in water depths that were impossible a generation ago.
ExxonMobil is a global company, with operations on six continents and in nearly every country. We are the world's largest non-government producer of oil and gas.
