The Bysshe Energy Company, also called Bysshe Co., was a pre-War company and in 2077 the operator of the research vessel USS Ozymandias. It apparently worked in the energy sector and acquired rights in the area of Point Lookout to probe for usable natural gas resources.

Known projectsEdit

Natural Gas Survey Project MD-16-001Edit

Main article: An Antique Land

The purpose of Natural Gas Survey Project MD-16-001 was to determine whether sufficient deposits of bio-gas were present on Point Lookout to make large-scale diggings viable. The company was aware that potential bio-gas reserves on the island would likely be a result of the mass burials during the American Civil War, a fact it sought to conceal even from its own leading expert, Caroline Saunders, as it was aware of her "liberal" leanings. Martin J. Roach was given the task to monitor her and when it became apparent that Saunders was starting to show interest in the gas deposits' origins, the execution of "Code Blue" protocols in order to destroy all evidence was ordered.

Bysshe's Ozymandias appears in the Fallout 3 add-on, Point Lookout. The Bysshe Company and its subsidiaries are mentioned in terminal entries inside the ship's wreck.

Behind the scenesEdit

The company name is a reference to Percy Bysshe Shelley. Among his works was a sonnet called "Ozymandias" which famously referenced a forgotten king of ancient history and how a short declaration of his unwarranted arrogance (chiseled into a ruined stone pillar) was all that remained of his mighty empire.
