Deepwater drilling

Advances in technology have enabled ExxonMobil to produce oil and gas from offshore wells in water depths that were impossible a generation ago.

Extended reach technology

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.
