The new manufacturing facility uses an ethane steam cracker with an installed capacity of 1.8 million metric tonnes annually, two polyethylene units with a production capacity of 1.3 million tonnes annually, and a monoethylene glycol unit with an installed capacity of 1.1 million metric tonnes annually to produce packaging, agricultural films, and construction materials.

With profits of USD 58 billion, 2022 was ExxonMobil's finest financial year, according to preliminary findings. For the fourth quarter, the business anticipates an operational profit of USD 15.4 billion.

ExxonMobil reported significantly lower profits in the fourth quarter despite having a banner year. The company anticipates that falling oil and gas prices will result in lower production business earnings. Due to the decline in crude prices, the oil major anticipates a USD 3.3-USD 4.1 billion sequential drop in upstream division earnings in the fourth quarter.

Lower natural gas prices are anticipated to have cost the upstream business USD 2-USD 2.4 billion in losses, while lower crude oil prices cost USD 1.3-USD 1.7 billion. Upstream mark-to-market derivative profits of USD 1.3–USD 1.5 billion more than offset the losses.

According to ExxonMobil, the increasing refining margins might cause a USD 100 million sequential increase or decrease in fourth-quarter earnings. Unsettled derivatives may have lost between USD 0.9 and 1.1 billion in value.

It is anticipated that the company's chemical division's margins suffered a USD 400–USD 600 million setback in the fourth quarter. ExxonMobil reported USD 500 million in losses as it sold undesired properties to concentrate on more lucrative ventures.

It's likely that rising commodity prices and improving gasoline consumption helped the energy sector in the fourth quarter. Commodity price explosions in 2022 led to record profits for all major oil companies. When European competitors switched to renewable energy initiatives, ExxonMobil gained the most from its decision to double down on oil during the pandemic.

In the previous six months, ExxonMobil stock outperformed its sector. The stock has increased by 28.2% vs the industry's rise of 23.5%.
