The company also has a strong presence in the prolific Permian Basin, where it continues to reduce its fracturing and drilling costs.
ExxonMobil’s barometer status and an optimal integrated capital structure that has historically produced some of the best returns in the industry make it a relatively low-risk game in the energy sector.
