Top 10 Oil & Gas Companies: Number 7 - Royal Dutch Shell
« on: May 14, 2013, 08:00:49 AM »

The seventh oil and gas company on the list is the super major more commonly known as Shell.

The company was founded in 1907 following the merger of the Royal Dutch Petroleum Company and the "Shell" Transport and Trading Company Ltd of the United Kingdom.

Thanks to its distinctive logo and subsidiary Shell Oil Company’s many service stations, Shell is one of the most well known oil and gas companies in the world. The Shell name and logo is tied to the "Shell" Transport and Trading Company -  it’s founder’s father having originally created a business selling sea shells to collectors.

An Anglo-Dutch company, Royal Dutch Shell’s revenue is equivalent to 84% of the Netherlands's GDP at the time.

In 2012 Shell was took the top spot as the biggest company on the FTSE, with a 140.9 billion market capitalization. The company also topped Fortune 500’s Global 500 – their annual ranking of the world’s largest corporations.

Earlier this year, Shell announced that current CEO Peter Voser will retire from the company in 2014
