Sun Oil Company, SUNOCO, various blue/gold ovals and circles

Successor companies
Successor companies to the Standard Oil Trust (post-1911) include:

Standard Oil of New Jersey (SONJ) - or Esso (S.O. or Eastern States, Standard Oil) - renamed Exxon, now part of ExxonMobil. Standard Trust companies Carter Oil, Imperial Oil (Canada), and Standard of Louisiana were kept as part of Standard Oil of New Jersey after the breakup.
Standard Oil of New York - or Socony, merged with Vacuum - renamed Mobil, now part of ExxonMobil.
Standard Oil of California - or Socal - renamed Chevron, became ChevronTexaco, but returned to Chevron.
Standard Oil of Indiana - or Stanolind, renamed Amoco (American Oil Co.) - now part of BP.
Standard's Atlantic and the independent company Richfield merged to form Atlantic Richfield or Arco, now part of BP. Atlantic operations were spun off and bought by Sunoco.

Arabian American Oil Company and Aramco are the same thing. Arabian American Oil Company became nationalized in 1980 and later changed its name to Saudi Arabian Oil Company or simply Saudi Aramco.
I am currently working for Aramco's office in Houston, Aramco Services Company. They gave us a long history lesson during orientation.

In my post I tried to indicate that Aramco stood for Arabian American Oil Co.
