Chemical operations

We are one of the largest petrochemical companies worldwide. Our chemical company provides the building blocks for a wide range of products, from packaging materials and plastic bottles to automobile bumpers, synthetic rubber, solvents and countless consumer goods.

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 15 per cent 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.
