The Largest Oil and Gas Corporations in 2022: Who are They?
By Garvit Vyas, 12 October, 2022
Oil demand has begun to suffer because of rising prices and a weakening global economy, although a recovery in China and robust power generation partially offset these effects. At the same time, the rate of growth in worldwide demand has slowed slightly in 2022. A further increase is anticipated in 2023, driven by the non-OECD countries' robust development track. The World Bank also cautioned that the invasion of Ukraine by Russia and its effects on supply chains, inflation, and financial conditions had accelerated the decline in global economic activity in its most recent edition. Following are some of the largest Oil & Gas firms by revenue in 2022 based on net income.
