SWOT Analysis


• In 2009, refinery throughput averaged 6.4 million barrels per day, and petroleum product sales were 7.2 million barrels per day • Exxon Mobil leads the petrochemical industry with interests in 49 wholly-owned and joint-venture facilities around the world • Diversified revenue stream helps to reduce exposure to economic conditions or political stability in any one country or region • The net profit of the company increased at a CAGR of 16% during FY2004-FY2009, from $25.3 billion in FY2004 to $45.2 billion in FY2009. The net profit increased by 11.4% in FY2009 over FY2008 • It spent $847 million on R&D in FY2009.

• In October 2008, the company was fined by the European Commission along with eight other petrochemical companies for price fixing of paraffin wax • Exxon Mobil was fined E83.6 million (approximately $123 million) • Exxon Mobil's neglect has contaminated the soil, groundwater, tidal water, and sediment of San Francisco Bay. The suit demands that Exxon clean the site and pay the damages • The workers of Mobil Producing Nigeria (MPN), an affiliate of Exxon Mobil, went on a strike in April 2008 over pay and working conditions • Such employee actions adversely affect the operations of the company and result in decline in the productivity. • The upstream division in the US has recorded a consistent decline in its production volumes • The crude oil and natural gas liquid production volumes in the region have been declining since FY2005


• Over the next 10 years, the company expects about 60% percent of the world’s petrochemical demand growth to occur in Asia, with more than one-third in China alone ExxonMobil is currently participating in building the Golden Pass LNG regasification terminal on the US Gulf Coast, with a planned capacity of about 2 billion cubic feet per day. Exxon Mobil plans to invest between $25 billion to $30 billion annually over the next five years to deliver major projects to meet growing world energy demand The demand for global energy is expected to increase approximately 35% from 2005 to 2030.


• A weak economic outlook for these regions could depress industrial development and impact the demand for the company’s products • The company might experience fluctuations in exchange rates, complex regulatory requirements, and restrictions on its ability to repatriate investments and earnings from its foreign operations • The company might also face changes in the political or economic conditions in the foreign countries it operates in • Such instabilities could negatively impact the revenue growth of the company • Introduction of the Kyoto Protocol for the reduction of greenhouse gases. The protocol calls on industrialized countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions level by 5.2% on an average annual basis during the 2008-12 period
