Upstream operations

Our Upstream business encompasses high-quality exploration opportunities across all development types and geographies, an industry-leading resource base, a portfolio of world-class projects and a diverse set of profitable producing assets.

In 2015, European operations accounted for 14 percent of ExxonMobil’s net oil and natural gas production. We have upstream investments in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Romania, and the United Kingdom. In 2015, ExxonMobil net liquids production in Europe totaled 204,000 barrels per day. In the same years, operations by ExxonMobil and its partners produced 2.3 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.
