ExxonMobil has conducted a successful sea trial using the company’s first marine bio fuel oil with shipping company Stena Bulk, bunkered in the port of Rotterdam.
Rystad Energy estimates that the decision taken by the Papua New Guinea (PNG) to halt the talks with ExxonMobil about the state’s share of revenues from the planned P’nyang gas field development is expected to delay two key LNG projects that would double the country’s gas output.
Somalia’s Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources gave the green light to Shell and ExxonMobil to explore and develop potential offshore oil and gas reserves in its territory. According to seismic data there is a possibility of significant oil reserves offshore.
The Norwegian energy research and consultancy firm Rystad Energy reported that according to its estimations the demand from the world’s top oil companies for floating drilling units will increase through 2020 and 2021.
Following the environmental trend on tackling fossil fuels, American energy giants Exxon Mobil Corp. and Chevron Corp. are following a totally different path as they try to weather the storm, as Bloomberg reports.
The world’s oil and gas explorers discovered 12.2 billion barrels of oil equivalent (boe) in 2019, the highest volume since 2015, according to estimates from Rystad Energy. Last year recorded 26 discoveries of over 100 million boe, with offshore regions leading the list of new oil and gas deposits.
ExxonMobil stated that it made an oil discovery offshore Guyana at the Mako-1 well southeast of the Liza field, marking the 15th discovery on the Stabroek Block, an addition to the company’s previous estimated recoverable resource of more than 6 billion oil-equivalent barrels on the Stabroek Block.
In fact, ExxonMobil was given more time to “ascertain the full commerciality” of two offshore blocks EG06 and EG-11 by the Equatorial Guinean oil and gas ministry. What is more, the Ministry of Mines and Hydrocarbons of Equatorial Guinea has granted ExxonMobil a six-month extension for the offshore blocks.
The New York State Supreme Court officially announced that ExxonMobil is now clear of the Office Attorney General’s fraud charges in misleading investors about the accounting for the cost of the future climate change regulation. In light of the situation, ExxonMobil issued its response to the Court’s verdict.
After noticing a lack of opportunities for women to network with others during industry events, Sarah Louise Howell, Marketing Communications Manager, ExxonMobil LNG and Tracy Lothian, Senior Vice President, Rovuma LNG Marketing, came together to discuss what ExxonMobil could do differently. The end result was the Power Play initiative, which aims to change the way people view diversity in the industry.
