ExxonMobil To Double Investment in Africa By End of Decade
ExxonMobil plans to double by the end of the decade the $12 billion it has invested in Africa in the last five years, ExxonMobil President Rex Tillerson said.
The world's largest publicly traded oil company has made a firm commitment to growth in Africa, with 30% of its current worldwide crude-oil production coming from Africa, ExxonMobil spokesman Russ Roberts added.
ExxonMobil expects to increase its African oil production to 1 million barrels a day by 2010, from the current level of 730,000 barrels a day, Roberts said.
In Angola alone, ExxonMobil now produces more than 550,000 barrels of oil a day, Tillerson said in a speech to the World Petroleum Congress in Johannesburg.
