Title: Platts top 250 global energy company rankings

Abstract

Revenues and profits for many firms surged last year over previous years. The turnaround from last year's global survey is dramatic. Asset- and revenue-rich integrated oil and gas companies dominate the top rungs of the 2005 Platts Top 250 Global Energy Company Rankings. The following industry segments were analyzed: diversified utilities; exploration and production; electric utilities; gas utilities; integrated oil and gas companies; refining and marketing; independent power producers; coal and consumable fuel companies and storage and transfer companies; The total combined revenue for the coal and consumable fuels sector was $74.7 billion. Leaders in this sector were: Yanzhou Coal Mining Co., CONSOl Energy Inc., Peabody Energy Corp., PT Bumi Resources Tbk, Cameco Corp., and Arch Coal. 14 tabs.

  • The third annual survey of global energy companies measures companies' financial performance using four metrics: asset worth, revenues, profits and return on invested capital. The following industry segments were analysed: coal and consumable fuel companies; diversified utilities; exploration and production; electric utilities; gas utilities; integrated oil and gas companies; refining and marketing; independent power producers and storage and transfer companies. Integrated oil and gas companies (IOGs) captured nine out of the top ten spots while IPPS struggled in 2005 as the sector on a whole lost money. The exploration and production segment showed financial stability while gas utilities saw theirmore » financials climb. The Exxon Mobile Corp. continued its reign of the number one spot.« less

  • The level scheme of doubly even /sup 250//sub 98/Cf/sub 152/ has been studied from the ..beta../sup -/ decay of /sup 250/Bk. ..gamma..-ray energy and intensity measurements were made using Ge(Li) and Si(Li) detectors. Analysis of ..gamma..-singles and ..gamma..-..gamma.. coincidence data has revealed the existence of approx. 46 ..gamma..-ray transitions. Approximately 40 of these, accounting for > or approx. = 99.97% of the observed ..gamma..-ray intensity, have been incorporated into a level scheme for /sup 250/Cf consisting of 17 excited states with excitation energies up to 1695 keV. The following states, whose I/sup ..pi../ values and energies (in keV) are wellmore » known from other experiments, are observed: the 0/sup +/(0), 2/sup +/(42.73), and 4/sup +/(141.89) members of the ground-state band; the 2/sup -/(871.56), 3/sup -/(905.85), and 4/sup -/(952.0) members of the K/sup ..pi../ = 2/sup -/ octupole band; and the 2/sup +/(1031.85) and 3/sup +/(1071.38) members of the ..gamma..-vibrational band. In addition, evidence is presented which permits the following I, K/sup ..pi../ assignments to be made with reasonable confidence (the corresponding level energies: in keV: are given in parentheses): 1,1/sup -/(1175.5); 2.2/sup +/(1244.50); 2,0/sup +/(1296.64); 2,2/sup +/(1657.99); and 3,2/sup +/(1695.2). The half-life of /sup 250/Bk has been remeasured and a value of 192.7 +- 0.3 m obtained. The absolute intensities (in photons/100 /sup 250/Bk ..beta../sup -/ decays) of the prominent 989- and (1028 +- 1031) -keV ..gamma.. rays have been measured using a 4..pi.. ..beta..-..gamma.. coincidence system and values of 45.0 +- 0.8 and 40.6 +- 0.7, respectively, have been obtained.« less
  • The authors utilize predictions of runoff from two series of GENESIS (version 1.02) climate model experiments to calculate chemical erosion rates for 12 time slices that span the Mesozoic and Cenozoic. A set of control experiments where geography is altered according to published paleogeographic reconstructions and atmospheric pCO{sub 2} is held fixed at the present-day value was designed to elucidate climate sensitivity to geography alone. A second series of experiments, where the (elevated) atmospheric CO{sub 2} level for each time slice was adapted from Berner (1991), was executed to determine the additional climate sensitivity to this parameter. By holding othermore » climate forcing factors (for example, vegetation) constant throughout the sequence of experiments the authors evaluate the effects of systematic/coherent paleogeographic changes on runoff and temperature, and thus on global rates of chemical weathering. By using empirical relationships between runoff and bicarbonate fluxes for different rock types and maps of paleogeology they calculate global bicarbonate fluxes, taking into account spatial variations in lithology and hydrology. They find that spatial variations in lithology account for little variation in the total or silicate chemical erosion rates. Calculations suggest a weaker-than-expected CO{sub 2}-climate weathering feedback. The reasonable atmospheric pCO{sub 2} variations specified for the climate-model simulations do not lead to climatic effects that support large changes in the chemical erosion rate, compared to those generated by changing paleogeography. In general, however, they find that silicate weathering rates are similar to outgassing rates of volcanic and methamorphic CO{sub 2}.« less
