High-impact drilling and completion technologies

Advances in technologies used for well drilling and completion have enabled the energy industry to reach new sources of oil and natural gas to meet rising demand around the world. New technologies have also helped reduce the environmental impact of energy production by allowing more oil and gas to be produced with fewer wells.

Deepwater technology

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

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.

The latest generation of 3-D technology

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.

Developing cutting edge technology - carbon capture and sequestration

With a working interest in approximately one-third of the world’s total carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) capacity, ExxonMobil is a leader in one of the most important next-generation low-carbon technologies. CCS is the process by which carbon dioxide gas that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere is captured, compressed and...
