25 Largest Energy Companies by Revenue

In this article, we will be covering 25 largest energy companies by revenue. If you want to skip our detailed analysis of the global oil and gas market, you can go directly to 5 Largest Energy Companies by Revenue.

Accounting for trillions of dollars in annual revenue, the energy industry is one of the most important and largest sectors in the global economy. The oil and gas market supplies a significant portion of the world’s energy needs and it is expected to remain a key component in the global energy landscape for many years to come.

The Global Oil and Gas Market at a Glance

The rise in geopolitical tensions around the world has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, supply chain disruptions, and a surge in commodity prices that is negatively affecting many markets across the globe. Despite these challenges, the global oil and gas market is expected to grow in the coming years. According to a report by Research and Markets, the global oil and gas market was valued at $7.33 trillion in 2023. The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.3% during 2023-2027, propelling it to reach above $8.67 trillion by the end of the forecast period. Driven by economic development and population growth, the demand for oil and gas is expected to continue growing. Technological advancements are making oil and gas production more efficient and less costly, which is also increasing profitability for the corporations operating in this space.

However, renewable energy’s share of the global energy mix is growing. According to a report by the International Energy Agency (IEA), it is anticipated that renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power, along with nuclear power, will meet over 90% of the increase in worldwide electricity demand by 2025. Moreover, in one of our previous articles about the most efficient electric vehicles, we discussed that as the world transitions toward sustainable alternatives, the electric vehicles market is expected to experience quick growth. The growing importance of renewable energy could hamper growth of the oil and gas market.

Major Players in the Industry

Major companies in the oil and gas market include Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM), Saudi Arabian Oil Company (TADAWUL:2222), and Shell Plc (NYSE:SHEL).

Shell Plc (NYSE:SHEL) is an international energy company that specializes in the production, exploration, refining, and marketing of oil and natural gas. It also invests in power, including from renewable sources such as solar and wind, as well as in electric vehicle charging and low-carbon fuels for transport. On November 2, Shell Plc (NYSE:SHEL) reported strong earnings for the fiscal third quarter of 2023. The company reported earnings per share (EPS) of $1.86. Shell Plc (NYSE:SHEL) reported a revenue of $76.35 billion and outperformed revenue estimates by $11.29 billion. As of November 6, Shell Plc (NYSE:SHEL) has surged nearly 11.5% over the past six months.

Oil and gas companies are also expanding into new markets in order to diversify their revenue streams. Saudi Arabian Oil Company (TADAWUL:2222), or Saudi Aramco, is a Saudi Arabian petroleum and natural gas company and one of the biggest companies in the world by revenue. On October 11, Reuters reported that India seeks Saudi Arabian Oil Company (TADAWUL:2222) to join its planned 6.5 million metric tons (MMT) strategic petroleum reserve (SPR) program as India looks to beef up ties with its key oil supplier. The two countries have discussed Saudi Arabian Oil Company’s (TADAWUL:2222) participation in the SPR program for years, but the talks gained momentum after Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman met with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi in September.

Major oil and gas companies are also looking to acquire other companies in order to grow their businesses and expand their portfolios. On October 11, Reuters reported that Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) agreed to acquire Pioneer Natural Resources Company (NYSE:PXD) in an all-stock deal worth $59.5 billion. This deal would secure a decade of low-cost production for Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) while also making it the largest producer in the Permian Basin, which is the biggest US oilfield. Valued at $253 per share, this deal will combine the largest US oil company with one of the most successful companies to emerge from the shale revolution, which transformed the US into the largest oil producer in the world in just over a decade.

Let's take a look at where some of these major oil and gas companies rank on our list of the 25 largest energy companies by revenue.
