    The first offshore (oceanic) oil well was in the Santa Barbara Channel, California, in 1896. Earlier drilling in water took place in a lake in Ohio.

    The first real commercial offshore operations were in 1947 in the Caspian Sea (technically a salt lake), linked below, and offshore Louisiana – http://www.ehow.com/about_4597210_offshore-oil-rigs.html.
