ExxonMobil is a global company with a presence in about 200 countries. We have an industry-leading inventory of discovered oil and gas resources and an impressive portfolio of growth opportunities. We are the largest refiner and marketer of petroleum products and the leading manufacturer of lubricating oil basestocks. Our chemical company ranks among the world's largest petrochemical enterprises. We also generate electric power in Hong Kong.
Exploration and production
ExxonMobil holds exploration rights to just over 60 million undeveloped acres, an area about as large as the United Kingdom, including leading positions in some of the world's most promising areas. Our resource base consists of more than 70 billion oil-equivalent barrels of discovered oil and gas resources, complemented by the industry's strongest portfolio of proprietary technology.
We have underway more than 100 major new development projects and global gas and power marketing activities. These include deepwater projects in West Africa and the Gulf of Mexico, and a liquefied natural gas project in Qatar.
Every day we produce more than four million oil-equivalent barrels of oil and gas in fields extending from West Texas to West Africa, from Australia to Alaska. We work in some of the world's most remote regions and under extreme conditions - in deep seas, arctic ice, deserts and tropical rainforests.
ExxonMobil is also the world's largest non-government marketer of equity natural gas. We have access to 56 trillion cubic feet of proved reserves and more than 185 trillion cubic feet of discovered gas resources. In addition, backed by proprietary technologies, we are a leader in commercialising large, remote gas resources.
By itself, ExxonMobil's downstream business would be one of the world's largest companies. We have interests in 46 refineries in 26 countries, 25,000 miles of pipelines, 40 crude oil and petroleum product tankers and 42,000 retail sites in more than 100 countries. In addition, fuel products and services are provided to aviation customers at more than 700 airports and to marine customers at 300 marine ports around the world.
ExxonMobil Chemical is the world's largest producer of olefins, the basic petrochemical building blocks. The company also has a leading position in a number of specialty businesses. Chemical products manufactured by ExxonMobil are used to make everything from plastic packaging and surgical gowns to auto bumpers and flooring.
