The second-largest oil company in the U.S. held on to the third spot on this list despite another year of falling revenue and slipping profits. Crashing crude prices did nothing to help Chevron in 2014, leading to a 13% cut in capital and exploratory spending this year. The company did hit on exploration success last year, though, adding the equivalent of more than a billion barrels of oil through discoveries in the Gulf of Mexico as well as Australia, Canada and the U.S.’s Permian basin. Chevron is also counting on future gains from a liquefied natural gas (LNG) project kicking off in Western Australia.
