Worlds 10 largest oil companies (Exxon is 3rd)

Quick little list from a source we use at work. Interesting I think to point out where oil money mostly flows to, and the size of the industry.

Exxon, the world's largest public company and the record holder for the most profitable, is the third largest oil company:

  1. Saudi Aramco (Saudi Arabia)
  2. NIOC (Iran)
  3. Exxon Mobil (US)
  4. PDV (Venezuela)
  5. CNPC (China)
  6. BP (UK)
  7. Shell (UK/Netherlands)
  8. ConocoPhillips (US)
  9. Chevron (US)
  10. Total (France)
I find it amusing that the oil majors get such bad press and general public anger, when it is really the state-owned national oil companies which finance anti-capitalist, anti-American, and anti-democratic policy, terrorism, and radicalism. The more production we can get from Exxon, and the less from PDV (side note: dont buy gas at Citgo), the better off we are.
