The project, designed to show people what happens at the plant, began in November 2016 and since then, tours have taken place every fortnight.
 
Hides superintendent Ken Rhyason said the tours aimed to take away the mystery about what happens inside the fence and to build on Exxon's established relationships with Hides communities "to create a stronger more connected society".  
 
The sessions are complimented by other discussions around healthy living, education and community development in general.  
 
"Our staff are also contributing to the program by educating participants on general hygiene, food preparation, food storage and health issues," Rhyason said.
 
Target groups include Hides area students, church representatives, community leaders, youth groups and women's groups.
 
The tour program involves a brief overview of the plant's operations including a drive around the perimeter fence and a walk through tour of the camp's kitchen before concluding with lunch and health talk from the ISOS medical clinic team.
