Protests met with professional response

In early April we experienced protests at four of our five fuel terminals in the UK, as part of a campaign targeted at the oil industry by activist groups acting under the banners ‘Just Stop Oil’ and ‘Extinction Rebellion’. The protestors prevented trucks entering or leaving our fuel terminals for hours at a time, and damaged fences and sabotaged vehicles and equipment.

Fawleys fab four female engineers

Four of ExxonMobil Fawley's senior female engineers, who hold some of the most important roles on site, are encouraging more girls to consider a career in engineering. While the number of female engineers in the UK is growing every year, women are still under-represented, and this is something they are keen to address. 

ExxonMobil announces improved first quarter 2022 results

Exxon Mobil Corporation last month (April) announced estimated first-quarter 2022 earnings of $5.5 billion despite a $3.4 billion charge associated with our planned exit from Russia. This was up from $2.7 billion in the same period during 2021, but down from the $8.87 billion earned during the fourth quarter of 2021.

Moving forward with WIN in the UK

ExxonMobil’s Women’s Interest Network (WIN) has a global presence across most ExxonMobil sites. Dr Sade Adenekan takes Newsline readers on a whirlwind tour of WIN activities in the UK.

Get Set Cake!

To mark the launch of the ExxonMobil Product Solutions company on 1st April, around 1,200 specially marked cupcakes were handed out to the F&L and Chemicals teams as part of a planned exercise to merge the two businesses.

EMBRACE supporting diversity at ExxonMobil

ExxonMobil works to recruit, develop and retain employees who are representative of the numerous geographies where we do business and communities in which we operate. Whilst proud of the progress we have made towards our inclusion and diversity (I&D) vision, there is more to do, and our employee networks play a key role. These include the WIN (Women’s Interest Network); PRIDE (our LGBTQ+ network), Mental Health; and EMBRACE – to name a few.
