Ships of Standard Oil of California "SoCal," [now Chevron] -- since 1895

The Pacific Coast Oil Company, later known as Standard Oil of California or "SoCal", and now known as Chevron, was founded in 1895.

During World War II, SoCal ships were appropriated by the War Shipping Shipping Administration. Socal ships fueled battleships, aircraft carriers and troopships along the Pacific coast. SoCal tankers towed concrete barges to the South Pacific and acted as floating "gas stations" in the war zone.

Two SoCal ships were sunk during World War II: the H. M. Storey and H. D. Collier. The W. S. Rheem was torpedoed, but survived.
