IRVING, Texas (August 31, 2017) – Exxon Mobil Corporation said it has increased its financial commitment for Harvey relief to up to $9.5 million, which includes a new employee and retiree donation match program and in-kind donations to the American Red Cross for recovery efforts in South Texas. The increased support builds on $1 million in previous contributions to the American Red Cross and United Way of Greater Houston.
“Our thoughts and sympathies remain with our colleagues, families, friends and neighbors in communities suffering from the storm’s effects,” said Darren W. Woods, chairman and chief executive officer. “Our primary focus remains the safety and security of our employees, facilities and neighbors in Houston, Beaumont and other impacted areas.”
The company is assessing its Upstream, Downstream and Chemical facilities located along the Texas Gulf Coast.
“We are continuously monitoring the status and effects of the storm and will determine when we can begin to restore our refining, chemical and oil production to pre-storm capacity safely,” Woods said. “We understand the impacts reduced production is generally having across the region, and we’re working as hard as possible to bring our facilities back online quickly and safely.”
