Standard Oil Development Company of New Jersey
Standard Oil is an AWE site from 1941-1991 so workers are eligible to file Part B claims.
Standard Oil has a Special Exposure Cohort which covers all workers with specific cancers and at least 250 days of employment for August 13, 1942-December 31, 1945.
Standard Oil locations at both 1900 East Linden Avenue (Linden) and the property at 1400 Park Avenue (Bayway) performed a variety of tasks for the Manhattan Engineer District (MED) during World War II. The company was contracted to obtain materials for work being done by the Metallurgical Laboratories of the MED. It also conducted studies and performed development work to produce uranium metal through chemical reduction processes and to construct and operate a centrifuge pilot plant for uranium separation.
The company continued to provide consulting and analytical services for the Atomic Energy Commission, but it is not believed that any radioactive materials were handled at either location after World War II (1945).
During the period of residual contamination, as designated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and as noted in the dates above, employees of subsequent owners and operators of this facility are also covered under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act.
