Standard Oil Company OF Louisiana...Stanocola

Between 1906 and 1908, Standard Oil of New Jersey considered and decided to build a new refinery on the Gulf of Mexico. Standard Oil Trust officials decided Baton Rouge, Louisiana would be the site for this new facility. It was to connect with the Oklahoma oil fields via pipeline. In April 1909, The Standard Oil Company of Louisiana was organized under the presidency of Fredrick W. Weller. The new company immediately started to build the new refinery and pipeline. Stanocola was formed for production, refining, transporting and marketing.

Although it was Jersey Standards idea, Stanocola was basically an independent subsiderary of the Standard Oil Trust. After the courts ordered 1911 breakup of Standard Oil, Stanocola was assigned to Jersey Standard. It continued to operate as an independent company, marketing their own Stanocola products. Their marketing area included Louisiana, Arkansas and Tennessee.

In 1924, Jersey Standard decided to unify all its affiliates and marketing areas with the "Bar and Circle" logo. The Stanocla logo was replaced with this new imaging. Stanocola continued on under Jerseys domain until Januaru 1, 1945, when it was completely absorbed by Standard of New Jersey.

The Stanocola "shield in circle" design is one of the most colorful logos ever produced. These graffics and the fact that it pre-dates 1924 makes them extremely rare and desirable.

Here is the beautiful logo used by Stanocola pre-1924. This is the rarer 18" version.

Wow, what a great sign! I may be mistaken, but I think this sign was one of the first to replace the early "shield" logo. Probably circa 1923-24.

All known Stanocola globes were 15" metal until I found this one (globe on the left). It's 16 1/2" metal and was a "new find". Unfortunately, it does have a lot of paint loss, but I still think it is cool.

Nice globe Gary.Do you or anyone know the connection between Stanocola and Standard Oil of Kentucky (KYSO)? I have seen several grease cans with Kentucky on the bottom.I was told or read somewhere that KYSO sold Stanocola product,but KYSO was a buyer of Petroleum products so the question.

Thanks Willie for saveing me the can.Rex

Rex, Stanocola produced and marketed their own products from their refinery. I'm sure KYSO was a purchaser of these various lubricants.

They do exist! This is the first map I have ever seen from Stanocola. Always wondered if any were out there. Unfortunately, I was outbid in the last seconds, so I only will have pics to look at.

In my research, only 3 or 4 states were shown as their marketing area. The map has several more states listed. This was one reason I wanted the map. To see if Stanocola had services in these other states, which I believe they did. For those interested, here is a link to the auction which has a couple of more cool pictures of the map. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7136709448&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT
