Mobil Canada

ExxonMobil CanadaExxonMobil and its affiliated companies are present on a world scale, doing business in 200 countries and territories. The company began in the late 1880s. John D. Rockefeller acquired a diversity of petroleum interests during that period and organized them under the Standard Oil Trust. That same year marked the incorporation of two refining and marketing organizations: Standard Oil Co. of New Jersey and Standard Oil Co. of New York. "Jersey Standard" and "Socony," as they were commonly known, were the chief predecessor companies of Exxon and Mobil. These two spin-off companies from Standard Oil continued to operate separately in the industry until the late 1990s. To stay competitive, the two companies decided to merge in 1999 as ExxonMobil Corporation.

ExxonMobil CanadaToday, the company produces petroleum, aviation fuels and lubricants, marine fuels and lubricants, and base stocks. ExxonMobil Canada, an industry leader in production, is one of the nation's largest oil and gas exploration and production companies. As well, Imperial Oil Limited majority shareholder is Exxon Mobil Corporation. At the forefront of the Canadian energy industry for more than sixty years, ExxonMobil Canada has grown from solid roots in western Canada to lead the development of the Atlantic offshore oil and gas industry. ExxonMobil Canada is a wholly owned subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation.
