LUKOIL ranked 5th among the oil and gas companies of Europe, Middle East and Africa, and placed 10th among the world’s majors in the 2011 list of ‘Top 250 Energy Companies’ compiled by the American energy agency Platts.
All companies were ranked by four main criteria: asset value, revenues, profits and return on invested capital.
The valuation was performed based on Standard & Poor’s database which is, like Platts, a unit of The McGraw-Hill Companies.
