I vote for Exxon

Which "dirty oil" company could use a rebrand?   11 members have voted

  1. 1. The name of the company that has the worst reputation is:

    • Exxon: synonymous with disaster
      3
    • BP: they should shift back to Amoco to sever its ties to the Horizon disaster
      2
    • Aramco: The name is associated with the oil embargo and frowned upon by the western world
      1
    • Enbridge: Pipelines already have a bad name, but Enbridge's ties to the largest inland oil spill in the US makes it ripe for rebrand
      0
    • PDVSA: no explanation needed
      4
    • Schlumberger: Some nicknames just roll off the tongue, don't they? Also tied to Horizon disaster "SlumberJ"
      0
    • Other: explain below
      1

Exxon's name has been drug through the mud most of all, I think.

It was a tough choice but I went with BP.

From a purely phonetic point of view I like Enbridge, Kinder Morgan, and Schlum to never change their names.

As sullied a name as BP does have, which would have been my second choice, I think Exxon still has the worst wrap.

I vote for PDVSA. But now that I did that, I think it is silly because no matter what they change their name to, they're going to ruin it as well.

I guess I always think of Shell because of Nigeria, but BP pops up immediately in my head as well.
