Exxon predicts decarbonization business to surpass oil.

Exxon’s Low Carbon Business Could Outperform Oil and Gas in a Decade

Exxon Mobil Corp’s Low Carbon business has the potential to generate hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue and outperform the company’s traditional oil and gas as soon as a decade from now, CEO Darren Woods said.

Exxon Lays Out Emerging Energy Transition Strategy to Investors

The largest U.S. oil producer on Tuesday laid out to investors the aims of its emerging energy transition strategy in a meeting with Wall Street. Exxon is tackling what should be a multi-trillion market in 10 years or more, Woods said.

Exxon’s Low Carbon Business to Provide Predictable, Long-Term Contracts

The result will be an Exxon less prone to commodity price swings through predictable, long-term contracts with customers striving to reduce their own carbon footprint.

“This business is going to look quite a bit different than the base business of Exxon Mobil,” vowed Dan Ammann, president of Exxon’s two-year-old Low Carbon Business Solutions unit. “It is going to have a much more stable, or less cyclical, profile.”

Regulatory and Policy Support Needed for Carbon Pricing

How quickly that vision becomes a reality will depend on regulatory and policy support for carbon pricing – something the U.S. has not broadly accepted – and the cost to abate greenhouse gas emissions, among other changes, he said.

Exxon’s Strategy Not Dependent on Rising Oil Prices

Ammann declined to comment on whether expectations for rising oil prices underpin the strategy.

Exxon Outlines Strategy for Emerging Low Carbon Business

Exxon is one of the most oil- and gas-focused companies among Western oil producers, a strategy that delivered record profits for its investors last year as fossil fuel prices soared.

Unlike its peers, Exxon has stayed away from renewable energy like solar and wind. Its energy transition plans lean heavily on reducing carbon emissions from its own operations, which Exxon is spending $10 billion by 2027 to implement.

Exxon Tackles Carbon Capture, Hydrogen, and Biofuels

Exxon is tackling carbon capture, hydrogen, biofuels, which it estimates have a combined potential of $6.5 trillion by 2050, equivalent to the traditional oil and gas business.

Exxon Signs Long-Term Agreement with Linde Plc

The company on Tuesday disclosed that it signed a long-term agreement with Linde Plc, adding a new client to its portfolio of companies willing to pay to decarbonize their operations.

Exxon Expects Multi-Billion Dollar Contracts in Next Five Years

It expects to sign contracts that should generate multi-billion dollars in revenue annually in the next five years, under current conditions. The business can achieve “robust double-digit returns” off these long-term contracts, Ammann said.

Market Could Be Worth Tens of Billions of Dollars in Annual Revenues

In five years or more, depending on carbon pricing and regulatory conditions, the market could be worth tens of billions of dollars in annual revenues, the company said in a presentation.
