ExxonMobil moving corporate HQ to Houston
Move will put the company on track to exceed $6B in cost savings by 2023
ExxonMobil is slated to move its corporate headquarters about 250 miles from Irving, Texas to its campus north of Houston in mid-2023.
About 250 people currently work at the Irving location, including CEO Darren Woods and the company's management committee.
"We greatly value our long history in Irving and appreciate the strong ties we have developed in the North Texas community," Woods said in a statement. "Closer collaboration and the new streamlined business model will enable the company to grow shareholder value and position ExxonMobil for success through the energy transition."

The move is part of an organizational restructuring that will put the company on track to exceed $6 billion in structural cost savings by 2023.
Effective April 1, the company will establish three business lines: upstream, which produces oil and gas, product solutions, which makes fuel and chemicals, and low carbon solutions. Its technology operations will also be combined under a single organization known as ExxonMobil Technology and Engineering.
Former ExxonMobil Chemical Company president Karen McKee will lead the production solutions business, while former ExxonMobil Upstream Oil and Gas Company president Liam Mallon will lead the upstream business. ExxonMobil Technology and Engineering Company will be led by former ExxonMobil Upstream Integrated Solutions and Upstream Business Development president Linda DuCharme.
