In oil and gas safety is priority #1 and that was certainly true back when offshore production was still in its infancy. Demand for oil skyrocketed when the United States ended rations on gasoline at the end of World War II. Oil companies responded to meet this demand by drilling in the Gulf of Mexico with the help of leases offered by Louisiana. War veterans found many oil and gas jobs during this endeavor as key wartime technologies and equipment developed by the U.S. Navy for warfare at sea proved to be invaluable for safe oil exploration and production offshore. The Navy trained hundreds of divers in underwater salvage operations and introduced mixed-gas and saturation diving techniques that became vital to offshore operations.
