The World Oil and Gas Council has named ExxonMobil 2017 Explorer of the Year in recognition of the producer company’s excellence and innovation in the global energy industry. 

“This award is recognition of ExxonMobil’s successful efforts to strengthen our portfolio by accessing and discovering the highest quality resources,” said Steve Greenlee, president of ExxonMobil Exploration Company. “This recognition would not be possible without the dedication of our employees and their daily commitment to safety and operational excellence at every stage of exploration.”
