Global top oil and gas companies

The United Kingdom’s Royal Dutch Shell and BP are among the world’s largest oil and gas companies, earning revenues of 322.7 billion U.S. dollars and 252.6 billion U.S. dollars, respectively in 2017, according to the 2018 FT ranking. Royal Dutch Shell, more commonly known as Shell, produced about 595 million barrels of oil and gas liquids in 2017. Shell was founded in 1907 and is headquartered in The Hague, Netherlands and in London, United Kingdom. Shell is vertically integrated in the oil and gas industry and is a part of exploration, production, refining, and power generation, among other aspects of the industry.
