ExxonMobil on Friday said a new study estimates the company’s development of Permian Basin resources in New Mexico will generate approximately $64 billion in net economic benefits for the state and local communities over the next 40 years, creating thousands of new jobs and providing increased funding for education, health and human services and infrastructure improvements.

“The Permian Basin is the engine of America’s energy renaissance and New Mexico residents will see direct economic benefits and opportunities from our planned investments,” said Darren W. Woods, chairman and chief executive officer of Exxon Mobil Corporation. “We will be a significant, long-term economic contributor to the state of New Mexico and will work hard to be a trusted member of the community.”

The state government will receive an estimated $62 billion in net fiscal benefits, $44 billion of which will come from new leases and royalties, according to the research. About $8.5 billion will come from state oil-and-gas severance taxes, said the study which was conducted for ExxonMobil by Impact Data source. The research findings assume an oil price of $40 per barrel.

From an employment perspective, ExxonMobil’s activities will generate an average of 4,100 direct job opportunities for New Mexicans per year for the next 40 years, the study estimates. Over the next 40 years, the company’s operations are expected to generate a total of approximately $29 billion in new wages, salaries and benefits.

New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham said the industry is crucial for residents and expressed optimism about the projections.

“The benefit to this state’s bottom line, as represented by investments from companies like ExxonMobil, has been enormous,” Gov. Lujan Grisham said. “My administration has been and will continue to be responsive to changes in the energy sector and the need for meaningful regulation and diversification as a means of ensuring a sustainable future – for our children, their education, the infrastructure that will support our collective future and more.”

Local communities to gain an estimated $1.8 billion in economic growth

As part of ExxonMobil’s Permian Basin growth plans, the company plans to expand its operations to produce more than 1 million oil-equivalent barrels per day as early as 2024. This significant growth will require about $55 billion in capital expenditures in Eddy and Lea counties, providing significant economic growth benefits to the state.

Southeastern New Mexico communities where ExxonMobil operates will receive an estimated $1.8 billion in net tax revenue, said the Impact Data Source study.

More than 65 percent of those estimated tax revenues will flow to the state’s general fund.

At current funding levels, those contributions would translate into:

  • $6 billion for higher education, which is enough to pay college tuition for more than 827,000 New Mexico students
  • $10 billion for health and human services, which is equal to the salaries of more than 146,000 nurses
  • $18 billion for New Mexico’s public schools, which is equal to the salary of more than 309,000 elementary school teachers
  • $6 billion for other state government services, which is almost equal to the entire 2018 New Mexico state budget
