Exxon Mobil Corporation has announced plans to invest at record levels -- between $25 billion and $30 billion annually over the next five years -- to meet expected long-term growth in world energy demand.
"The global economy is currently experiencing a downturn, but at ExxonMobil we are focused on the long term," Rex Tillerson, chairman and chief executive officer, said at an annual briefing for investment analysts at the New York Stock Exchange.
"ExxonMobil's strong financial position, resulting from the strength of our business portfolio and our prudent approach to risk management and investment, enables us to develop new oil and gas projects, increase our production of higher value refined products and grow our chemical business."
Tillerson outlined ExxonMobil's major achievements in 2008 and plans for the future. Highlights include:
"ExxonMobil is strong, resilient, and well positioned for the future," said Tillerson.
"Our commitment to developing advanced technology, our industry-leading operational and project-management capabilities and exceptional employees continue to position the company as the partner of choice for resource owners around the world."
