ExxonMobil VP for Africa, Asia Pacific Sees Future in Fossil Fuel Exploration

Journal of Petroleum Technology 

Geoscientist Kerry Moreland was ExxonMobil's exploration manager for the Guyana/Suriname Basin from 2014 to 2018, when the energy giant confirmed multiple discoveries, including the world-class Liza-1 find, where for decades drillers hit mostly dry holes. After a stint as West Africa exploration manager and Africa geoscience manager for development and production, Moreland was promoted to her current position: vice president, Sub-Sahara Africa and Asia Pacific, exploration and new ventures, ExxonMobil Upstream Business Development Co. Today, Moreland manages ExxonMobil's oil and gas exploration acreage and evaluates new opportunities across the industry's two most important frontier energy landscapes--Asia Pacific and Africa, which are destined to see the highest growth in energy demand by 2050 as well as present the greatest challenges for managing energy supply in a dual energy environment. This week, Moreland discussed her company's current successes and future vision in one of a series of IPTC Insights interviews conducted by a moderator with thought leaders at the International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) in Kuala Lumpur. Here, JPT reports the highlights of Moreland's interview. IPTC: In January 2020, ExxonMobil increased its estimated recoverable resource base in Guyana to more than 8 billion oil equivalent barrels and announced its 18th discovery in September 2020 at the Redtail-1 well on the Stabroek Block.
