Total SA held steady at No. 11 even as the energy market’s volatility resulted in a nearly 7% dip in 2014 revenue, to $212 billion, while profits fell to $4 billion from $11 billion in 2013. Plunging global oil prices have forced the French oil giant to slash costs and reduce spending as it attempts to achieve a profit amid significantly lower oil prices. New CEO Patrick Pouyanné’s thrifty ways, which include a 30% cut in 2015 exploration spending, mark a shift in strategy from his predecessor, Christophe de Margerie, who passed away in a plane crash in the fall of 2014.
