ExxonMobil Major Projects To Deliver 1 Million Oil-Equivalent Barrels By 2017; Liquids Production To Rise On Average By Four Percent Per Year

Stocks in this article: XOM

Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) anticipates major project start-ups will deliver 1 million oil-equivalent barrels over the next five years, Rex W. Tillerson, chairman and chief executive officer, said today at the New York Stock Exchange.

Production of crude oil and other liquids is expected to increase by an average of four percent per year between 2013 and 2017 as the company starts production at 28 major oil and gas projects, 24 of which are liquids or liquids-linked projects. Twenty two major projects will start production over the next three years, including an expansion of the Kearl oil sands project in Alberta, Canada, and a liquefied natural gas export project in Papua New Guinea.

In a presentation to investment analysts, Tillerson said the company has a growing global portfolio of high-quality resource opportunities with exploration success most recently in Romania and Tanzania. ExxonMobil is planning to more than double its exploration acreage in a range of proven and emerging locations, such as Russia, that will feed its inventory in the coming years.

To continue to explore for and develop new resource opportunities, ExxonMobil plans to invest about $190 billion over the next five years to meet growing energy demand.

“An unprecedented level of investment is needed to develop new energy technologies to expand supply of traditional fuels and advance new energy sources,” Tillerson said. “We are developing a diverse portfolio of high-quality opportunities across all resource types and geographies.”

At the meeting, the company outlined its major achievements in 2012 and plans for the future. Highlights include:

  • ExxonMobil replaced 115 percent of its 2012 production and 174 percent of its crude oil and other liquids, increasing proved reserves to 25.2 billion oil equivalent barrels. It was the 19th consecutive year the company replaced more than 100 percent of its production, with proved reserve additions of 1.8 billion oil-equivalent barrels.
  • 22 major upstream projects are expected to start up in the next three years, including the Kearl oil sands project in Canada and the liquefied natural gas project in Papua New Guinea.
  • In the downstream, the company is progressing new facilities in Singapore, China and Finland to capture growth in markets like China and Russia.
  • A major expansion at the Singapore chemicals facilities was completed, which adds 2.6 million tonnes per year of additional capacity and will help meet demand growth in Asia Pacific.
  • In Saudi Arabia, the company is developing a world-scale synthetic rubber and special elastomers plant to serve growing demand for these products in the Middle East and Asia.
  • ExxonMobil Chemical has filed permit applications for a multi-billion dollar petrochemical expansion at the company’s integrated Baytown complex in Texas. The project would include a new ethane cracker and premium product facilities to capitalize on abundant supplies of U.S. natural gas.
  • ExxonMobil continues to lead competitors in return on average capital employed at 25.4 percent in 2012, about seven percentage points higher than the nearest competitor.

This is the 11th year that ExxonMobil has made an annual presentation to analysts at the New York Stock Exchange.
