ExxonMobil is the largest non-government owned oil and gas company.

The company was formed in 1999 following the merger of Standard Oil descendants Exxon and Mobil in a $73.7 billion deal, the biggest merger in US corporate history. Understanding the value of local branding, Exxon Mobil markets it products under the names Exxon, Mobil, and Esso.

The company produces approximately 3 percent of the world's oil and 2 percent of the world's energy.

Their public profile took a hit when the 1989 Exxon Valdez incident cast a negative spotlight on the oil and gas industry.

Although number four in terms of oil and gas production, Exxon Mobil is the holder of perhaps an even more impressive title - that of the world’s largest company by revenue.

This year the company also become the world’s largest publicly traded company by market capitalisation.
