I preferred to analyze the company ExxonMobil as it is one of the biggest petroleum companies in the world. With a net income of 45.22 billon dollars in 2008, ExxonMobil realized the biggest net income in the World. The company represents 2% of NYSE capitalization.

The company has 38 oil refineries in 21 countries constituting a capacity of 6.3 million barrels per day, and 42,000 service stations in 100 countries under the brands Exxon, Esso, and Mobil.
