Land use and resettlement

Our business includes socioeconomic input and risk assessments when choosing sites and land use, with the purpose of reducing risks and minimizing cost and schedule impacts.

Prior consultation should be conducted when the temporary or permanent use of land for exploration, development, or production purposes has the potential to impact individuals, households or entire communities. Land access and acquisition, resettlement (avoidance of), compensation, and cash management is done in a fair and transparent manner following ExxonMobil’s Upstream Land Use Standards.
