Because of our global presence, we are accustomed to applying our cutting-edge technologies in our search for new energy sources in every geological and geographical environment.
Advances in technology have enabled ExxonMobil to produce oil and gas from offshore wells in water depths that were impossible a generation ago.
Today, wells can be drilled horizontally as well as vertically, beginning miles from the oil and gas they are intended to reach. Extended reach technology allows ExxonMobil to develop long-reach wells that can extend horizontally for miles in the subsurface.
The oil and gas sector already has more than 60 years of experience in hydraulic fracturing. How does this technology work?
