ExxonMobil's MSDW Lube Technology Selected By S...

Exxon Mobil Corporation
                  

ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company (EMRE) announced today that S-Oil
Corporation has selected EMRE's newest commercialized MSDW(TM) proprietary lube
catalytic dewaxing technology for its refinery and lube oil plant located at
Onsan, Republic of Korea. This is the second MSDW unit licensed by S-Oil for
this location in the last two years. Both units are running successfully and
meeting all product quality expectations. This second MSDW unit called for an
aggressive start-up schedule to meet S-Oil's production requirements.

The selection of MSDW technology provided S-Oil Corporation with the lowest cost
option for the production of higher quality lubricant base oils. MSDW technology
converts waxy oils and raffinates to conventional or ultra low pour point base
oils and provides a significant increase in oil viscosity index. MSDW is already
operational at eight locations worldwide. These MSDW applications include grass
roots designs, retrofits of existing units and catalyst replacements. In
addition, MSDW has been selected for three new grass roots units that are
currently in the design phase.

ExxonMobil continues to invest significantly in research and development
directed at improved catalysts that will provide step-out performance
improvements.

EMRE is the research and engineering arm of Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM),
a leading global oil, natural gas, and petrochemicals company whose subsidiaries
have operations in approximately 200 countries and territories. Additional
