Organization History
The AESC was established in 1956 as the Association of Oilwell Servicing Contractors (AOSC). The original meeting of the group that organized and established the association, met in Odessa, Texas in February of 1956.  Over the years, the industry and the association evolved to comprise more industry services and products. In 1996, the organization changed its name to the Association of Energy Service Companies (AESC) in order to better reflect the interests of the total energy service industry.  Through the years, the association has grown to incorporate other type services directly affiliated with upstream oil and gas services such as wireline, coiled tubing, hot oilers, roustabout services, snubbing, swabbing, fracing, pressure pumping, oilfield trucking, etc.

For more than five decades, the AESC has operated through a network of national committees and local chapters, who address safety, technology, environmental, insurance, governmental, training, oilfield theft, and other issues of common concern.
