“Our decision to exit is a decision we make with conviction,” Van Burden said. We cannot – and will not – stand idly by.”
The company was one of five companies that provided 50% of financing and guarantees for the estimated cost of 9.5 billion euros ($10.6 billion) to build the Gazprom Nord Stream 2 pipeline under the Baltic Sea between Russia and Germany. The project effectively came to a halt last week when German Chancellor Olaf Schulz said the country would halt certification of the pipeline.
Its subsidiary, Exxon Neftegas Limited, owns a 30% stake in Sakhalin-1 – a huge oil and natural gas project located off Sakhalin Island in the Russian Far East. It has operated the project since 1995 on behalf of a consortium that includes Japanese and Indian partners, as well as two Rosneft subsidiaries.
