ExxonMobil’s most successful year within a decade in terms of revenue was 2011, exceeding the previous year by almost 100 billion U.S. dollars. The same can be said for the company’s profits, which amounted to more than 41 billion U.S. dollars in that year. At the end of 2017, ExxonMobil had a market valuation of approximately 355 billion U.S. dollars. More than 69.6 thousand people were employed by ExxonMobil in 2017.
ExxonMobil is composed of three divisions: Upstream, Downstream, and Chemical. Upstream, which includes exploration and extraction, is by far the most important division. With approximately 13.4 billion U.S. dollars, it was responsible for around 68 percent of the company’s total net income in 2017. In the same year, ExxonMobil Upstream’s production output in oil equivalents was some 6.3 million barrels per day (liquids plus natural gas).
The company owns oil refineries all over the world, with a refining capacity of some 4.91 million barrels per day. That makes ExxonMobil one of the world’s top refiners. The company’s total proved reserves reach a total oil equivalent of more than 21 billion barrels. However, ExxonMobil owns less than one percent of the world’s total oil and gas reserves.
