From the Paper:

"On October 9, 2001, Chevron Corporation and Texaco Incorporated merged to form a new major energy company called ChevronTexaco Corporation. The two companies' relationship first began in 1936 when California Texas Oil Company, a joint venture, was created by Standard Oil Company and The Texas Company. Chevron Corporation traces its roots back to its beginnings in 1879 when Pacific Coast Oil Company was founded and incorporated. Pacific Oil Company was acquired by Standard Oil Company in 1926, at which time the company first became incorporated. The company name remained as Standard Oil Company through several acquisitions until 1984 when it merged with Gulf Oil Corporation, at which time the new company began to be known as Chevron. "
