Our history

ExxonMobil was the first oil and gas company to set up operations in Brazil. We arrived in the country on January 17, 1912, under the name of Standard Oil Company of Brazil, and since then we have kept uninterrupted activities in the country.

As part of our legacy, we have the Esso brand and the Tiger mascot in the gas stations. Also important to mention is The Reporter Esso radio cast and TV news show, which subsequently gave birth to the Esso Journalism Award, one of the most prestigious awards in the history of Brazilian journalism for six decades.
