The rise in production of abundant natural gas in North America and other regions has led to heightened interest in natural gas as a transportation fuel.
Advances in technology have enabled ExxonMobil to produce offshore oil and gas deposits in water depths that were impossible a generation ago.
Hydraulic fracturing is not new, and has been used safely and effectively for more than 60 years. During that time, more than one million wells have been completed using hydraulic fracturing.
ExxonMobil scientists invented and patented the Controlled Freeze Zone™ technology, a breakthrough process that more efficiently removes impurities from natural gas.
Nearly 50 years ago, ExxonMobil pioneered a technology called 3-D seismic imaging, which uses sound waves to form three-dimensional images of geologic formations.
Full wavefield inversion (FWI) is an integral part of our exploration and development efforts and a signature part of our suite of seismic capabilities known as EMprise.
With a working interest in approximately one-third of the world’s total carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) capacity, ExxonMobil is a leader in one of the most important next-generation low-carbon technologies. CCS is the process by which carbon dioxide gas that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere is captured, compressed and injected...
