APM Worldwide at ExxonMobil Upstream Oil & Gas

Since 2009 ExxonMobil has been leveraging GE Digital Asset Performance Management solutions (formerly Meridium APM).  This presentation will discuss some of the foundational principles of how we planned for, scaled, and continue to sustain a single instance of APM globally for all ExxonMobil operated upstream affiliates.


ExxonMobil, one of the world’s largest publicly traded energy providers and chemical manufacturers, develops and applies next-generation technologies to help safely and responsibly meet the world’s growing needs for energy and high-quality chemical products.

Are you feeling the squeeze?

Market volatility and a global pandemic are driving a tighter focus on ways to squeeze profitability out of shrinking margins. Sub $60 per barrel oil prices are the new normal and, to drive growth, operators need to boost productivity, reduce risk, and meet regulatory requirements while keeping their teams and communities safe. And, they must do all this within a much tighter cost profile than historically required.
