The rise in production of abundant natural gas in North America and other regions has led to heightened interest in natural gas as a transportation fuel.
ExxonMobil scientists invented and patented the Controlled Freeze Zone™ technology, a breakthrough process that more efficiently removes impurities from natural gas.
Advances in technology have enabled ExxonMobil to produce offshore oil and gas deposits in water depths that were impossible a generation ago.
Full Wavefield Inversion (FWI), a key component of ExxonMobil’s EMprise seismic capability, uses supercomputing technology to provide geoscientists unparalleled insights into the physical characteristics of rocks and geologic structures in the subsurface.
Four decades ago, ExxonMobil pioneered an exploration technology called 3-D seismic, which uses sound waves to form sharp three-dimensional images of underground formations, facilitating the location of oil and gas deposits.
As the world’s largest public natural gas producer, ExxonMobil brings supplies of this cleaner-burning energy source to global markets in a safe, reliable, and responsible manner.
ExxonMobil leads in one of the most important next-generation technologies: carbon capture and sequestration (CCS). CCS is the process by which carbon dioxide gas that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere is separated, compressed and injected into underground geologic formations for permanent storage.
