Britain's Most Admired By Sector: Oil, gas & extractive

Leader BG Group does well this year, up from 29th position overall to 11th.

1 BG Group 66.3
2 Tullow Oil 63.4
3 Royal Dutch Shell 63.0
4 BP 62.9
5 Anglo American 60.3

Q3 results were impressive, with a 106% rise in profit to £1.38bn, and revenues up 78% to £3.3bn. The oil price rise helped, but the group was also successful in its Brazilian offshore explorations. In second place, newcomer Tullow Oil is riding high after realising large oil deposits in Uganda and Ghana, and reported record earnings for the first half. A good year, too, for Royal Dutch Shell, which rises two places in the sector to third. Under the aegis of CEO Jeroen van der Veer, the group has performed consistently well; he will be a hard act to follow when he is replaced next July by the current CFO, Peter Voser.
