ExxonMobil is the world’s largest publicly traded international oil and gas company. We hold an industry-leading inventory of global oil and gas resources. We are the world’s largest refiner and marketer of petroleum products. And our chemical company ranks among the world’s largest. But we are also a technology company, applying science and innovation to find better, safer and cleaner ways to deliver the energy the world needs.
Over the last 125 years ExxonMobil has evolved from a regional marketer of kerosene in the U.S. to the largest publicly traded petroleum and petrochemical enterprise in the world. Today we operate in most of the world’s countries and are best known by our familiar brand names: Exxon, Esso and Mobil. We make the products that drive modern transportation, power cities, lubricate industry and provide petrochemical building blocks that lead to thousands of consumer goods.

We are dedicated to maximizing the number of local employment opportunities wherever we do business.

ExxonMobil recognizes that investing in local workforces around the world is essential to the long-term sustainability of our business.

Talented employees may be developed through assignments throughout the Corporation’s global operations.
Focusing on Sakhalin Island (Russia)
Offshore Sakhalin Oblast in the Russian Far East, ExxonMobil subsidiary Exxon Neftegas Limited (ENL) is developing the Chayvo, Odoptu, and Arkutun-Dagi oil and gas fields for the Sakhalin-1 consortium.
In Sakhalin, as in every region where we operate, we seek to hire local employees, build capacity, and contribute to local economic progress.
Our technical training programs for suppliers and contractors continue to reach more Sakhalin residents. Working with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), we helped welders improve their skills through certification classes and granted microfinance loans to encourage development of small- and medium-sized businesses, improving the oil services sector on Sakhalin.
ENL, along with its partners in the Sakhalin-1 Consortium, contributed another $200,000 to the loan fund of small- and medium-sized businesses in North Sakhalin in 2005, and a second office for the program was opened in Okha. Officials from USAID and ENL met with contractors at Sakhalin-1 project sites in 2005 to start bringing together local entrepreneurs, business opportunities, and financing for the benefit of all.
Since 2002, ENL has recruited 110 operations technicians and engineers for its production facilities located either on Sakhalin Island or the DeKastri terminal on the Russian Federation mainland. Each new employee completes a five-year training program in preparation for a future role in operations.
