Global freshwater consumption

ExxonMobil's global freshwater consumption in 2015 was 300 million cubic meters. This represents a 30 million cubic meter increase when compared to our 2014 global freshwater consumption. Since 2012, we have actively maintained our freshwater consumption below our 2011 performance. *We report freshwater intensity alongside consumption data in our performance data. Freshwater intensity is the ratio of net freshwater consumption to the amount of throughput or production. Normalized in this way, we can better understand how efficiently we are using freshwater in our operations. Data collection began in 2007. Includes XTO Energy data beginning in 2011.
