The U.K.-based energy major pushed one spot higher on this year’s list, as the company finally began to escape the long shadow of 2010’s Deepwater Horizon oil spill. With record utilization of both its oil and gas fields and its refining capacity, BP’s profits nearly tripled in 2018 from the previous year, even amid geopolitical worries including uncertain global economic growth and trade tensions between the U.S. and China. Like rival Shell, BP focused in 2018 on growing its stake in the booming U.S. energy market, completing a $10.5 billion deal to purchase shale assets from BHP.
