Platts to Unveil 2014 Top 250 Global Energy Company Rankings on October 28

Annual Roster and Second "Asia CEO of the Year" to be Announced at Singapore Dinner

SINGAPORE, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Platts, a leading global provider of energy, petrochemicals, metals and agriculture information, will unveil its 2014 Top 250 Global Energy Company Rankings™ on October 28 during Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW), an annual exchange of ideas and discussions addressing pertinent energy issues. The Platts Top 250 Rankings, now in its 13th year, will be announced at the company's Asia Awards Dinner to be held this year at The Fullerton Hotel, Singapore.

The 2014 Platts Top 250 Global Energy Company Rankings reflect the financial performance of publicly held energy companies for fiscal year 2013, based on a combination of four factors: asset worth, revenues, profits and return on invested capital. The list also ranks companies by industry sector and region, and names the 50 fastest-growing companies.

Platts' 2014 Asia Awards Dinner will be emceed by Annalisa Burgos, anchor and reporter for Channel NewsAsia's morning show, "First Look Asia," the region's leading English-language news and lifestyle program. Ms. Burgos joined the pan-Asian television network in 2013, bringing 14 years of experience as an award-winning journalist in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles, covering a wide range of business and lifestyle topics.

In addition to unveiling the 2014 Top 250 Global Energy Company Rankings, Platts will name its second "Asia CEO of the Year," who will be chosen by an independent panel of judges. Last year, this honor went to Li Fanrong, president and chief executive officer of Chinese exploration and production company CNOOC Limited. Asian companies that rank among the 2014 Top 250 have been notified of their eligibility to nominate their top executive for this award. "Asia CEO of the Year" nominees will also be included in the nomination pool for the 2014 Platts Global Energy Awards' "CEO of the Year" award, which will be presented in New York on December 11.

In recent years, Asian companies have played an increasingly prominent role in the Top 250 Rankings. Last year's roster included 74 companies from the Asia-Pacific region, largely representing China and India. With 27 companies among the 2013 Top 250, China eclipsed for the first time the Texas-based U.S. rivals that have long dominated the list. Of the dozen Indian companies on last year's list, four ranked among the top 50 companies globally.

The dinner, which is expected to draw more than 300 energy executives from the Asia-Pacific region, and will celebrate companies' financial achievements, advancements within the industry ranks, and leadership within nine energy sectors: diversified utilities, electric utilities, gas utilities, independent power producers, coal and consumable fuels, integrated oil and gas, refining and marketing, exploration and production and storage and transportation.

Attendance at this year's 2014 Platts Top 250 Asia Awards Dinner is open to all companies with business interests in Asia and to energy companies worldwide. Accredited media may attend as Platts' guests with advanced registration. Television cameras are welcome.
