While they do produce good information, the people at Forbes magazine are also responsible for the absolute worst website ever created. You’re forced to look at a page of commercials disguised as ‘thought for the day’, all information is spread across as many pages as possible to get more clicks, and the last time I visited on my laptop it nearly melted from trying to load all the ads/trackers/whatever.
So that’s why I’ve taken their excellent data and turned it into something a human being might actually benefit from – an easy-to-read table showing the biggest oil companies in the world. Great information if you’re planning to start a Petroleum Engineering career.
‘Oil Rank’ means the company’s rank within the industry, and ‘All Rank’ shows how they fare compared to all enterprises.
