US energy giant ExxonMobil reported 2018 earnings of $20.8 billion compared with $19.7 billion a year earlier.
Fourth quarter 2018 earnings were $6 billion compared with $8.4 billion in the prior-year quarter.
The company’s revenue jumped from $244.3 billion in 2017 to $290.2 billion, ExxonMobil said in a statement.
