ExxonMobil announces investment plans
xxon Mobil is to invest more than US$125 billion in capital spending over the next five years to deliver major projects to help meet growing world energy demand. Investment will be directed at developing new technology, bringing on new upstream projects, increasing the company’s base refining capacity and growing its chemical business. From 2008 to 2010, the company expects to participate in the start up of 19 new projects which, at peak, would collectively add more than 725 000 oil-equivalent barrels per day to ExxonMobil’s production. ExxonMobil expects to start up multiple projects over the next three years in the liquefied natural gas (LNG) business, including production, transportation and distribution. Using ExxonMobil proprietary technology, the company will commission four of the world’s largest liquefaction facilities and new LNG ships which can carry 80% more natural gas than conventional ships. A new project has just been announced to develop and produce hydrocarbon resources from the Point Thomson field on the Alaska North Slope. The project includes construction of production facilities, pipelines and support infrastructure.
