ExxonMobil corporate report

ExxonMobil corporate report

Report summary

Three counter-cyclical acquisitions totalling around US$11 billion have moved the portfolio lower down the cost curve and built optionality in both gas and oil. The asset base now has potential to sustain modest growth for most of next decade. Returns on discretionary future investment are also set to rise above all peers bar Chevron. But it has also been a bumpy ride through the downturn.
