Mr. D. G. Scofield, President October 7, 1915,
.Standard Oil Company,
San Francisco, California,
Dear Mr. Scofield:
I want to call your attention to'the later reports of
the investigation following the recent disaster at Ardmore, Okla.
It develops now that the tank car which ' caused the exolosion and
resulted in the death of more than fifty people was filled with
gasoline made by compressing natural gas, and known as compressor
gasoline, not a straight run refinery product like our Red Crown
gasoline, which, as you know, is a pure product of crude oil
Compressor gasoline is very unstable and very "gassy "
end the vapors ignite so readily that there is always danger of
fire or explosion in handling it.. The Ardmore shipment, it seems,
was intended to be mixed with low gravity gasoline in the same
manner as is done by some manufacturers in California, and the
product is known to the trade as a blended or mixed gasoline and
is offered quite extensively to motorists in some sections. Even
when 'compressor gasoline is blended in this manner it is still
very "gassy" and dangerous.
This unfortunate disaster at Ardmore has clearly point
ed out the wisdom of the action of our Board of Directors a lit
tle over a year ago in deciding to dismantle the compressor gaso
line plant which we installed at Newhall, California, with a view
to determining whether it was safe to compress our gas there and
ship the resulting gasoline to our refinery for stabilizing by
re-running. At that time we published in the Standard Oil Bulletin,
of July, 1914, a statement announcing the discontinuance of this
plant and the reasons therefor, and I attach the clipping hereto.
I believe, in Justice to the public and to ourselves,
we should take some means of informing motorists and all those
handling it the risk they are running in using this dangerous;
Very truly yours,
