The list is based on the main criteria of value of assets, receipts, net profit and return on invested capital.
ExxonMobil tops the list for the fourth year in a row, though there is a general downward tendency in American companies
Russian companies made a good showing on the list based on growth rate (based on total receipts for three years). Rosneft was in first place, up from 9th. Gazprom, NOVATEK (moving from 187th to 151st in the general rating), Gazprom Neft, LUKOIL, TNK-BP, Surgutneftegaz and Tatneft (84th to 81st) also figured in that rating.
Rosneft made its debut on the rating last year, at 16th place. This year, it leads all Russian companies at 6th place, thanks to its acquisition of YUKOS assets. LUKOIL has led the Russians in previous ratings. This year it rose from 12th to 11th place. Gazprom also passed it, however, rising from 17th to 10th place. Surgutneftegaz dropped from 29th to 40th place. Analysts note that Rosneft, Gazprom Neft and TNK-BP show especially good return on invested capital.
