Antwerp integrated site
The port of Antwerp is the second largest commercial port in Europe and is an economic centre for the petrochemical industry. Located in the docklands is our Antwerp refinery, the largest refinery in Benelux. Thanks to improved heat integration and leading-edge cogeneration technologies, our relative energy consumption is among the lowest in the industry. ExxonMobil is currently installing a new delayed coker unit at the refinery to convert heavy, higher sulphur residual oils into transportation fuel products such as marine gas oil and diesel fuel – to help meet energy needs.
Fully integrated with the refinery is the Performance Intermediates Plant. Its products are used as solvents in adhesives, (car) enamels, agricultural chemicals, cosmetics and oil, and also as fuel additives. Furthermore, the products are used in high performance drilling fluids for oil and gas drilling.
The Polymers Plants in Antwerp and Meerhout produce a wide variety of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) products for a large number of industries. Its products are used in a vast array of everyday products, including plastic bags and packaging films that help keep food safe and fresh.
Our four sites (the refinery, the Performance Intermediates Plant and the Antwerp and Meerhout Polymers Plants) are well-positioned to help meet energy needs throughout Europe.
Brussels Regional Headquarters and European Technology Centre
Our regional headquarters in Machelen, close to Brussels, is the downstream and chemicals head office for Europe, Middle East and Africa. It houses all the decision-making for the region and is the starting point for many financial and commercial careers.
Within the same building is the European Technology Centre, one of three major ExxonMobil technology centres in the world. Frequently, careers that begin in one of our manufacturing sites will lead to opportunities in the technology centre. Here, we provide process and product application technology and create the business opportunities of tomorrow. Our engineers and scientists create and apply knowledge and share it globally to enable our businesses to achieve leading positions in their targeted markets.
