The Anglo-Dutch energy giant jumped two places to the third spot, as revenues approached $400 billion and profits leapt 80% to more than $23 billion. Looking to capitalize on surging U.S. oil production, the company deepened its stake in the Gulf of Mexico and increased its bet on the U.S. shale boom by expanding its footprint in the Permian Basin in Texas. Under pressure from investors, Shell also took a landmark step to address climate change when it said in December that it would tie executive pay to hitting targets for lower carbon emissions.
