Upstream operations

In 2018, European operations accounted for 6 percent of ExxonMobil’s net oil production and 18 percent of natural gas production. We have upstream investments in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Romania, and the United Kingdom. In 2018, ExxonMobil net liquids production in Europe totaled 132,000 barrels per day. In the same year, operations by ExxonMobil and its partners produced 1.95 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day.

ExxonMobil employs the latest generation of 3-D technology, coupled with advanced computing, to create detailed images of the world’s oil and gas reservoirs. Today, four-dimensional seismic technology, which compares 3-D seismic surveys from the same field over different points in time, is extending our reach, and optimizing thermal recovery in heavy-oil reservoirs.

ExxonMobil continues to progress exploration activities and development projects in Europe. We are increasing recovery from our existing investments through targeted work programs and implementing new technology in several projects.
