Meeting the world’s growing energy needs is an enormous challenge. By 2030, as populations and economies grow, global energy demand will reach close to 325 million oil-equivalent barrels a day — more than 40% higher than in the year 2005.
ExxonMobil has been helping to meet energy demand in Europe for over 120 years. Today, we are heavily involved in exploring and retrieving Europe’s oil and gas reserves and investing to secure future European energy supplies. Our two European Technology Centres (in Brussels and at Port-Jérôme Gravenchon in Normandy) play an important part in making ExxonMobil one of the most technologically advanced companies in the world. They are specialized in innovations for chemical and lubricant products.
Our upstream business is responsible for the exploration, development and production of crude oil and natural gas; marketing of gas and power; and the longstanding commitment to research and development which has led us to numerous industry-leading breakthroughs in energy technology.
Our downstream business concentrates on refining crude oil for both fuels and lubricants, and marketing them all over Europe. It includes our network of service stations, as well as three business-to-business segments (Aviation, Industrial & Wholesale, and Marine).
ExxonMobil is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of olefins and polyolefins, used in packaging, and other petrochemical-based products. We have manufacturing sites in Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands and the UK.
