The World's Biggest Oil Companies

The world relies on the Oil & Gas industry.

In this list we count down the biggest oil and gas companies and gas companies in the world ranked by the volume of oil and gas produced every day. Click on the links on the sidebar to the right to jump straight to each company profile.
