This is where it all begins. Where the story of safely and responsibly meeting the global demand for energy starts. Across the upstream, our geologists, engineers and scientists work tirelessly to explore for and develop oil and natural gas using innovation and industry-leading technology.
Upstream business lines
Our Upstream business is organized into five businesses: unconventional, deepwater, heavy oil, liquefied natural gas (LNG), and conventional. This organizational model is underpinned by deep technical and commercial capabilities along each value chain.
We operate in all of the major U.S. unconventional producing regions and Western Canada and provide support and technical services to the corporation’s operations in Argentina. ExxonMobil Unconventional manages 11 million acres with a total resource base of about 33 billion oil equivalent barrels.
Liquefied natural gas (LNG)
50years’ experience developing Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies within ExxonMobil, making us a leader in CCS.
Additionally, technology advances such as artificial intelligence enable seismic data interpretation, enhance exploration activities, and improve subsurface understanding, all of which increase resource recovery. Technology also allows us to optimize developments and improve operations.
