HOUSTON (ICIS)--ExxonMobil’s third-quarter chemical segment earnings fell 21% year on year to $790m (€608m) because of lower margins and unfavourable exchange rate effects, the US-based energy and petrochemicals firm said on Thursday.
Overall, ExxonMobil’s third-quarter earnings fell 7.4% year on year to $9.57bn, partly because of lower production volumes and lower liquids and natural gas realisations, it said.
