Chemical operations

We process feedstocks from ExxonMobil’s Upstream and Downstream operations, supplemented with market sources, to manufacture chemical products for higher-value end uses. We focus on product lines that capitalize on scale and technology advantages, building on our strengths in advantaged feedstocks, lower-cost processes, and premium products. As a result, we have strong positions in the markets we serve and generate industry-leading returns throughout the business cycle.

Europe represents more than 25 percent of ExxonMobil’s global capacity. Major facilities in northwest Europe are highly integrated with ExxonMobil refineries, upstream facilities, and our other chemical plants across the region. This level of integration provides economies of scale, access to low-cost feedstocks, and logistics advantages.
