Woods, who assumed command of the world's largest publicly-held energy company on January 1, when former CEO Rex Tillerson resigned to become President Trump's Secretary of State, said ExxonMobil put its so-called Growing the Gulf plan into motion in 2013.
While the Trump administration eagerly promoted the 45,000 jobs figure, near the bottom, the statement qualified the Gulf Coast projects would create 35,000 construction jobs - typically short- to medium-term gigs, meaning the total number of people actually employed may be lower - and 12,000 full-time ones. "$20 billion investment. We are already winning again, America!"
Since Exxon released its statement first, some questioned the White House's aforementioned use of almost identical language in its statement.
Trump has praised XOM considering this kind of investment, economic development and job creation that will help put Americans back to work. And no less than the executive branch of the United States got busted for just such an offense on Monday ― the While House plagiarized Exxon while sucking up to it, in what must rank as one of the more sycophantic political salutes to big oil in recent memory. Further, numerous products that will be manufactured here in the United States by American workers will be exported to other countries, which will improve the balance of trade.
USA anti-missile system's deployment underway in S.Korea
The test took place days after the United States and South Korea kick-started massive military drills, known as Foal Eagle 2017. The deployment came a day after North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un fired four test missiles towards Japan.
In December, Trump plucked Exxon's then-CEO, Rex Tillerson, to be his secretary of state. "This is a true American success story", Trump said. In 2011, when new EPA chief Scott Pruitt was attorney general of Oklahoma, he received a letter from one of the state's largest oil companies.
In his third tweet on Exxon, Trump wrote, "45,000 construction & manufacturing jobs in the U.S. Gulf Coast region".
At IHS' CERAWeek energy conference in Houston, Russian Energy Minster Alexander Novak called natural gas the "product of the future" as environmental concerns and regulations grow.
The announcement comes after Woods said that the company plans to spend 50 percent of their worldwide drilling budget on shale operations next year, including $5.5 billion to drill wells in the US Permian shale region in Texas.
'Logan' brings in $85.3M in grand debut
The movie doubled that heartbreak by having the beloved character die at the end. Then and now: Jackman as Wolverine in X-Men (2000) and Logan (2017).
While celebrating the fact that hydraulic fracturing has helped make the USA a top producer of oil and gas in the world, he said the technology has also brought about a new era of investing for the country's downstream and manufacturing businesses. "These businesses are leveraging the shale revolution to manufacture cleaner fuels and more energy-efficient plastics". A transition team spokesperson said at the time, "Any attempt to discredit Monica is nothing more than a politically motivated attack that seeks to distract from the real issues facing this country".
Indeed, in this case, the plagiarized statement was celebrating ExxonMobil investment plans for Gulf Coast refinery plants.
"The supply is here; the demand is there".
"Investments of this scale require a pro-growth approach and a stable regulatory environment and we appreciate the President's commitment to both", Woods said.
