Oil & Gas Exploration & Production Industry Overview

Excerpt from Oil & Gas Exploration & Production Report

Companies in this industry develop and operate fields to extract crude oil and natural gas. Major companies include Apache, ConocoPhillips, and Exxon Mobil (all based in the US), as well as BP (the UK), LUKOIL and Tatneft (Russia), National Iranian Oil Company, PETROBRAS (Brazil), Royal Dutch Shell (the Netherlands), and Saudi Aramco (Saudi Arabia).

Competitive Landscape

Small companies compete by focusing on, and developing expertise in, a few geographic areas.
