In 1965, ExxonMobil captured sales to the Mediterranean markets of Italy and Spain, that led to the development of an LNG project in Libya which started up in 1971.
In the 1970s and 1980s we pioneered the development of Asian markets to develop the Arun LNG project in Indonesia. We were among the first to bring LNG to Japan for the inaugural Arun Trains and later on, developed the Korean market for expansion trains from Arun.
In the 1990s we leveraged our market relationships to secure Japan and Korean markets for the foundation projects in Qatar. In the late 1990s ExxonMobil's efforts to develop new LNG markets bore success when the first ever LNG sale was signed for expansion projects at RasGas.
During the 2000s, our sales portfolio expanded to the liquid markets of the US and Europe. Later, ExxonMobil leveraged its customer relationships to capture Asian markets for its Gorgon and PNG joint ventures.
For over 40 years, ExxonMobil has captured sales across the spectrum of LNG markets.
