LONDON, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Oil & Gas IQ ( ), a leading online resource and
community for the Oil and Gas industry has released its list of the top 10
biggest oil and gas companies worldwide.

The study was put together following research from a number of key industry
sources including the EIA and OPEC and lists the ten biggest energy players
globally, ranked by the volume of annual oil and gas production.

The list also includes other key facts including the number barrels produced
per day, key personnel, annual revenue in USD, location of headquarters, the
number of employees worldwide and whether they are state owned or private

The feature also presents a concise synopsis of the complex history of each
organisation explaining when and how they were founded and how they have
evolved to become the most dominant companies in the industry.

"The energy industry is vital to the global economy. Oil & Gas IQ's Top 10 Oil
and Gas companies list reveals how much the industry contributes both
domestically and internationally. What is also revealing is the placement of
the super majors and the increasing number of state owned oil companies on the
list. In every case state owned companies are contributing significantly to
their national GDP and will continue to do so as more reserves are
discovered," said Sumit Dutta, Marketing Director, Oil & Gas IQ.

Six of the top ten are the national oil companies (NOC) for Mexico, Saudi
Arabia, Kuwait, Russia, China and Iran, which highlight how in recent years
traditional super majors have faced stiff competition from the growing number
of state owned entities that are progressively acquiring sole rights to major
oil reserves.

The top five Oil and Gas companies are: Saudi Aramco, Gazprom, National
Iranian Oil Company, ExxonMobil and PetroChina.

The full list as well the in depth company profiles can be found exclusively
