LONDON (Reuters) – Exxon Mobil Corp (NYSE:XOM)’s Brazilian projects remained on track pending discoveries despite company-wide spending cuts, the company’s country head told the FT Global Commodities Summit on Wednesday.

“In Brazil, we have 28 blocks of which most of them are exploration. Although the company has gone through a capital expenditure reduction of 30% for 2020…the Brazilian projects remain on track largely because…we believe these assets will perform well,” Carla Lacerda, Exxon Mobil’s president in Brazil, said.

“Within the next 1.5 to 2 years we’ll be drilling out, between our operated and those operated by others, another 5 to 7 wells. Typically development projects take 5 years from discovery to production.”
