Subject. This article considers the specific financial and stock market indicators of the twenty five leading listed oil and gas companies within 2006 through 2018.
Objectives. The study aims to determine the current level of values of the specific financial and stock market indicators of the leading publicly traded oil and gas companies, as well as identify the key trends in the changes within the studied period and factors that have caused these changes.
Methods. For the study, I used comparative, and financial and economic analyses, and generalization of materials of the companies' consolidated financial statements.
Results. The article shows a tangible decline in most of the key specific indicators over the period under study, except for net revenue from core activities per barrel of production. The article finds that the long-term industry crisis impacts the group's performance greatly, and independent companies are suffering the most. It says that specific stock market coefficients are acceptable for assessing the possible value of the industry corporations, and the ratio of market capitalization to production is preferable. The article finds that domestic corporations are inferior to competitors in terms of specific stock market indicators, so the country specificity of the group coefficients is obvious.
Conclusions. The article concludes that a decrease in the specific profitability of hydrocarbon production in the industry's stock market segment affects the market attractiveness of the oil and gas sector negatively.

Keywords: production, proved reserves, revenue, net income, market capitalization
