Deepwater technology

Advances in technology have enabled ExxonMobil to produce offshore oil and gas deposits in water depths that were impossible a generation ago.

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.

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.
