The results on measurements of electrical conductivity of shock compressed gaseous and liquid xenon are discussed. Thermodynamical parameters of xenon are calculated in frames of plasma chemical model. To estimate electrical conductivity modified Ziman theory is used. A reasonable agreement between experimental and theoretical data on equation of state and transport properties is shown in a wide range of parameters from gas to liquid densities, pressures 10-140 GPa and temperatures >5000 K. New experimental data on measurements of equation of state and conductivity of xenon under multiple shock compression are presented.
