The Irving, Texas-based energy giant Exxon Mobil remains in the No. 2 spot after making gains in both profit and revenue in 2018; they rose nearly 6% and 19%, respectively. The company benefitted from cheap U.S. crude, while sidestepping volatility through its diverse mix of operations, from upstream exploration to refining to chemicals. The company’s global reach—it operates on six continents—is reflected in the wide range of projects it launched in 2018, including new discoveries in Guyana, a commitment to developing LNG in Mozambique, and a new refinery unit in Antwerp, Belgium. Plus, it’s made a strategic step into energy trading—traditionally an area dominated by its rivals.
