After the division of the Standard Oil Trust into different 'Baby Standards' in 1991, its European activities were carried on by Jersey Standard. This company originally operated under the name of Standard APC (American Petroleum Company), but from 1929 it sold oil products under the trade name of Esso, which is derived from the abbreviation of Standard Oil (S.O.).

Despite technological advances and radical changes resulting from war and crisis, the company's core business has continued to be the exploration and production of oil and the refining, sale and distribution of oil products.

These activities have continued to evolve with the introduction of new technologies and economic developments.

In the nineteenth century, refining was simply a matter of heating and then distilling the petroleum. The process became increasingly more sophisticated with the discovery of new methods of breaking down hydrocarbon molecules and has led to the production of high-quality light products. More oil components have gained commercial value, in part because of the steady increase in mobility. With the development of the petrochemical industry, oil companies have had the opportunity to produce an increasingly wider range of plastics.

Tiger History

   



 
 
The first sightings occurred along the roads of Norway in the early 1900s, when leaping tigers graced the emblems of Tiger Benzin gasoline pumps. Why tigers? The reason is lost or forgotten. But a century later, these cast-iron Esso Norway pumps are rare collector items, and the tiger is a symbol of Exxon brand strength and pride known all over the world.
 
The tiger was spotted next in England in the mid-1930s, when it made its Esso advertising debut as a ferocious, illustrated beast. This tiger was stopped in its tracks by World War II, when gasoline rationing and industry gasoline pools brought a halt to brand advertising.
 
The Exxon brand tiger returned in 1953 when competitive gasoline marketing resumed. In England and elsewhere in Europe, the powerful cat helped dispel memories of the lower-quality fuels available during the war years.
 
In 1959, as tiger ads waned in Europe, the tiger came to life in Chicago, Illinois, where an advertising copywriter sat at his typewriter thinking up symbols of power for a local Esso campaign. In two minutes, a famous advertising slogan was born: Put a Tiger in Your Tank.
 
Unlike his fierce forebears, this tiger emerged as a cartoon character - friendly, whimsical but still powerful. From his original Chicago habitat, the fun-loving cat eventually roamed Esso ads and promotions throughout the world.
 
The tiger tail emerged from thousands of gasoline tanks.
 
Tiger faces and stripes appeared on T-shirts, towels and other trinkets.
 
Within five years, the tiger was so well known, Time magazine dubbed 1964 "The Year of the Tiger Along Madison Avenue."
 
In the aftermath of the Arab oil embargo of 1973, the world began to focus on the importance of energy conservation. Esso marketers realized this serious issue deserved a more serious symbol than a cartoon. In 1975, Esso marketers in Britain introduced the first television ad featuring a real tiger "in the fur" to depict strength and reassurance.
 
Marketing affiliates around the world quickly adopted similar themes, encouraging customers to "Rely on the Tiger," for example.
 
When Exxon's romance with the tiger began almost a century ago, some 100,000 of these majestic beasts roamed wild and free. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case. Today there are fewer than 7,500 tigers in the wild. In 1995, ExxonMobil joined with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to help save the tiger from extinction.
