Reliable and affordable energy is essential to human progress. At the same time - like all industrial processes - energy development involves risk. ExxonMobil considers risk at every stage of development, and we continuously work to reduce environmental impacts. Rigorous standards and good practices that consider the needs of the communities where we operate guide our efforts.
