SINGAPORE -- ExxonMobil looks to build a network of carbon capture and storage facilities stretching across Southeast Asia, with Singapore serving as the collection hub of the new enterprise, the company's climate point man told Nikkei in an interview.

Singapore will collect and ship the global warming gas to storage facilities around the region via pipelines and ships, said Joe Blommaert, president for low carbon solutions at ExxonMobil.
