Research Strategy

We were unable to identify a precompiled list of the largest oil & gas companies in Western Europe by the number of employees in the public domain. Most of the list found was based on revenue.
To provide our list, we compared the list of the global largest companies by Forbes and the top 250 global energy company by S&P Global Platts. From the list, we selected companies with their headquarters located in Western Europe and also went further to confirm their number of employees from their annual reports.
