Exxon Mobil $XOM says it plans to invest more than $50B in the U.S. over the next five years, citing the recent tax law changes and “the unique strengths of our company.”

CEO Darren Woods says XOM

will be investing billions of dollars to increase oil production in the Permian Basin in west Texas and New Mexico, expand existing operations, improve infrastructure and build new manufacturing sites… on top of our massive build-out of operations along the Gulf Coast.
