The Standard-Vacuum Oil Company was a joint venture by Standard Oil of New Jersey, and Mobil Oil to make and market products in the far east Around World War I, the market in the Far East was too large to leave unattended but still small. Thus these two American oil companies started Standard Vacuum Oil as a joint venture. Following the break-up of Standard Oil in 1911, the Standard Oil Company of New York, or Socony, was founded, along with 33 other successor companies. In 1920, the company registered the name “Mobiloil” as a trademark.
