MOSCOW, Russia -- Exxon Mobil Corp. was honored here at the World Petroleum Congress for industry leadership in producing liquefied natural gas (LNG).
ExxonMobil received the Excellence Award for Technical Development for its leadership in safety, environment and technology in the development of the global LNG industry.
"ExxonMobil’s history as an LNG producer dates back to 1970 and continues today with key partnerships in a number of projects, including those in Qatar and Papua New Guinea,” said Rex W. Tillerson, ExxonMobil's chairman and CEO. "Without strong and sustained partnerships based on mutual respect and mutual benefit, significant progress would not be possible."
According to ExxonMobil, the Excellence Award is one of the most prestigious recognitions in the oil and gas industry. The honors are given every three years to both public and private companies and institutions by the World Petroleum Council during the World Petroleum Congress.
Irving, Texas-based Exxon Mobil Corp. is the largest publicly traded international oil and gas company.
