ExxonMobil Global Market Planner, Bioenergy in Spring, Texas


ExxonMobil Corporation is the world’s largest publicly held international energy company with operations on six continents. ExxonMobil is engaged in the exploration, production, transportation and sale of crude oil and natural gas, and the manufacture, transportation, and sale of petroleum products. The Company’s segments include Upstream, Downstream, Chemical, and Corporate. The Upstream segment explores for and produces crude oil and natural gas. The Downstream manufactures and sells petroleum products and the Chemical segment manufactures and sells petrochemicals. ExxonMobil Low Carbon Solutions, recently established, is advancing plans for more than 20 new carbon capture and storage opportunities around the world to enable large-scale emission reductions. ExxonMobil is also an industry technology leader with $1 billion invested each year in research and development.

ExxonMobil holds an industry-leading inventory of global oil and gas resources, with daily production of 3.95 million barrels of oil equivalent. ExxonMobil is also one of the largest refiner and marketer of petroleum products, with 21 refineries in 13 countries and its chemical company ranks among the world’s largest.

The energy industry plays a critical role in supporting economic growth and improving the quality of life for billions of people around the world. Over the next several decades, populations are projected to grow, and the middle class will continue to expand – dynamics that will further the demand for energy. Meeting this demand will require significant investment and new production in the energy sector. Increased demand for energy will also impact emission levels, which underscores the need to continue to pursue emission reduction efforts to mitigate the risks of climate change. ExxonMobil is helping address this dual challenge in a variety of ways through researching and developing next-generation technologies, developing products that help customers reduce their emissions, improving energy efficiency and advancing public policy solutions. Worldwide, ExxonMobil markets fuels and lubricants under four product brands: Esso, Exxon, Mobil, and ExxonMobil Chemical.

ExxonMobil established its Low Carbon Solutions business in early 2021 to commercialize low-emission technologies. It is initially focusing its carbon capture and storage efforts on point-source emissions, the process of capturing CO2 from industrial activity that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere, and injecting it into deep underground geologic formations for safe, secure and permanent storage. The business is also pursuing strategic investments in biofuels and hydrogen to bring those lower-emissions energy technologies to scale for hard-to-decarbonize sectors of the global economy.
