What would an ExxonMobil-Chevron mega merger look like?

Discover how quickly you can run critical 'what if' analysis in Lens

Amid fourth quarter earnings reports, speculation around Chevron and ExxonMobil chief executives discussing a merger amidst the pandemic last year had the newswire buzzing.  While these preliminary discussions are no longer active, the impetus for companies to consolidate still exists to maximise efficiencies and drive down costs. 

Using our integrated analytics platform, Wood Mackenzie Lens®, our senior research experts put this ‘what-if’ scenario to the test by running a global valuation on the combined portfolios. Within seconds, we are able to assess each Major's portfolio, determine potential value-driven synergies and rapidly assess risk versus reward.

Watch the video below to see how quick and easy it is to create custom company portfolios and value them in real-time using our Lens Upstream solution.
