US energy giant ExxonMobil has outlined a growth strategy targeting a 100 percent increase in earnings by 2025 at 2017 prices. 

Speaking of the company’s strategy, Darren Woods, chairman and CEO, during the meeting of investment analysts at the New York Stock Exchange, said the company has got “the best portfolio of high-quality, high-return investment opportunities that we’ve seen in two decades.”

Growth plans include steps to increase earnings to $31 billion by 2025 at 2017 prices from last year’s adjusted profit of $15 billion, which excluded the impact of U.S. tax reform and impairments, ExxonMobil’s statement reads.

Woods said this plan projects double-digit rates of return in all three segments of ExxonMobil’s business, upstream, downstream and chemicals.

In the upstream, the company expects to increase earnings through investments in U.S. tight oil, deepwater and liquefied natural gas (LNG). In LNG, the company expects to bring on new production to meet a projected increase in global demand.

ExxonMobil’s downstream business is projected to double earnings by 2025 by upgrading its product slate through strategic investments at refineries in Baytown and Beaumont in Texas and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Singapore, and Fawley in the U.K.

In its chemical business, ExxonMobil expects to grow manufacturing capacity in North America and Asia Pacific by about 40 percent.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
