Natural gas projects in Texas and Louisiana
Capitalizing on new, abundant domestic energy supplies, ExxonMobil is strategically investing in refining and chemical-manufacturing projects in the U.S. Gulf Coast region. Our initiative, which began in 2013 and is expected to continue through at least 2022, covers 11 major chemical, refining, lubricant and liquefied natural gas projects.
In addition to creating many high-skilled, high-paying jobs and expanded manufacturing capabilities, the initiative will dramatically increase Exxon’s export capacity. According to the American Chemistry Council, U.S. chemical exports were expected to increase more than 7 percent in 2018 to $139.2 billion.
