Exxon to build LNG terminal in China

Exxon Mobil says it signed a preliminary deal to build a multibillion-dollar petrochemical complex and invest in a liquefied natural gas terminal in China, despite trade tensions between the U.S. and China. XOM's agreement with the Guangdong provincial government includes a 1.2M metric tons/year ethylene plant, two polyethylene production lines and two polypropylene lines in the coastal city of Huizhou; the complex, which is expected to start in 2023, remains subject to a final investment decision.

The deal could be seen as a goodwill gesture amid a deepening trade war

Good. You can't have return on investment without investment. Others have jumped on the share buyback bandwagon

Shame on XOM for diminishing President Trump's efforts to achieve fair trade with China.
