LONDON, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The study was put together following research from a number of key industry sources including the EIA and OPEC and lists the ten biggest energy players globally, ranked by the volume of annual oil and gas production.
The list also includes other key facts including the number barrels produced per day, key personnel, annual revenue in USD, location of headquarters, the number of employees worldwide and whether they are state owned or private organisations.
The feature also presents a concise synopsis of the complex history of each organisation explaining when and how they were founded and how they have evolved to become the most dominant companies in the industry.
"The energy industry is vital to the global economy. Oil & Gas IQ's Top 10 Oil and Gas companies list reveals how much the industry contributes both domestically and internationally. What is also revealing is the placement of the super majors and the increasing number of state owned oil companies on the list. In every case state owned companies are contributing significantly to their national GDP and will continue to do so as more reserves are discovered," said Sumit Dutta, Marketing Director, Oil & Gas IQ.
Six of the top ten are the national oil companies (NOC) for Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Russia, China and Iran, which highlight how in recent years traditional super majors have faced stiff competition from the growing number of state owned entities that are progressively acquiring sole rights to major oil reserves.
The top five Oil and Gas companies are: Saudi Aramco, Gazprom, National Iranian Oil Company, ExxonMobil and PetroChina.
