Top Track 100

Private equity-backed Chrysaor was founded by chief executive Phil Kirk, 53, in 2007. In 2017 it became a major oil and gas player with the £3bn acquisition of nearly half of Shell’s North Sea oilfields and assets. As a result, revenues rose five-fold to £1.5bn in 2018 — the fastest growth on the table. In April, the London-based company bought the US energy giant ConocoPhillips’s UK assets for £2bn.
