major US oil multis, reporting Friday that its full-year net income
had risen 9.3 per cent to 44.9 billion dollars.
The amount was just 340 million dollars shy of the US profit record the company set in 2008 with 45.22 billion dollars earnings.
Chevron, the second largest US oil company, earned 26.2 billion dollars in 2012, a 3 per cent drop from the previous year, the company said.
