Industry leadership in producing liquefied natural gas (LNG) earned Exxon Mobil Corporation an Excellence Award today at the World Petroleum Congress in Moscow. ExxonMobil received the Excellence Award for Technical Development for its leadership in safety, environment and technology in the development of the global LNG industry through strong partnerships and long-term vision.

“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 chairman and chief executive officer. “Without strong and sustained partnerships based on mutual respect and mutual benefit, significant progress would not be possible.”

The Excellence Award is one of the most prestigious recognitions in the oil and gas industry. They are awarded every three years by the World Petroleum Council during the World Petroleum Congress. The award honors companies, institutions, public or private, for projects or innovations that promote or operate with high excellence.
