Результаты. The paper reveals deterioration of key indicators of leading publicly traded oil and gas companies’ financial stability within the studied period. I found that the global financial crisis, as a whole, did not have a significant negative impact. A decrease in the book value of assets as a result of revaluation, as well as implemented mergers and acquisitions with the attraction of an impressive corporate-wide debt capital can have a serious negative impact on the financial stability of companies in the industry. The trend towards improvement of financial stability indicators was outlined in the stock market sector of the industry after the industry crisis.
