ExxonMobil under the Esso brand has had a continuous business presence in Thailand for nearly 125 years, beginning in 1894 when the company started marketing kerosene. Today’s business includes a full range of downstream operations — a refinery with chemical units in Sriracha, a network of distribution terminals, nationwide service stations, a strong lubricants presence and natural gas production. Today, ExxonMobil affiliates in Thailand employ nearly 3,000 people.

The purchase of a small asphalt plant in 1967 led to the establishment of the Esso Sriracha Refinery in 1971, with expansions in 1976, 1985 and 1993 to its current 174,000 barrels per day capacity. In 1999, the Sriracha Refinery started up an aromatics unit. The refinery provides fuels products to approximately 600 Esso-branded service stations in Thailand. Onshore gas production began in Nam Phong in 1990, and the Bangkok Global Business Center was established in 2003.
