The Offshore Oil Scouts Association was organized in January 1955 by six major operators for the purpose of sharing information pertaining to the drilling of offshore wells. Within three years the organization had grown three fold.

In the early seventy's the Offshore Oil Scouts began producing computerized weekly drilling information as well as lease sales and lease history, and in June 1982, by utilizing scouts' information (tickets), set in motion the project of building our first Historical Well File.

With continued effort and support of our active members, the Offshore Oil Scouts Association will strive to enhance the methods and quality of our information while maintaining the high standards which have been set over the years.
