Looks like Associated Oil bought several tankers in the 190x

Other Associated histories list a couple of ships. This entire
Matson list shows only one ship (that I found) sold to Associated in
1910. Like most oil companies, Associated moved its crude by pipeline,
and refined products were shipped in pipelines, by coastwise ship, and
by rail. In that era, Associated maintained a fleet of around 400 tank
cars, and there were some interesting exchanges of cars between the
Associated fleet and the SP fleet.
