Special Task Force To Conduct Oil Loss Study

A thorough analysis of the oil loss
reporting system at Lago is presently
being performed by a recently form-
ed Lago Oil Loss Task Force. The
group, which initiated its work at the
beginning of November, is the first of
its kind at Lago.
It has the following primary objec-
tives :
(a) To analyze the component parts
of the Lago refinery oil loss re-
porting system to determine the
system's precision and to eva-
luate probable sources of unac-
countable oil losses.
(b) To recommend measures to im-
prove the precision, accountabili-
ty and reliability of the monthly
oil loss calculations to enable fu-
ture reduction of oil losses.
The Task Force is made up of re-
presentatives of Lago and several
other Exxon affiliates. Ray Farro
heads up the Task Force; the other
Lago team members are: Vivian We-
ver, Glenn Geerman, Eric Dowling,
and Vic Tjin Tham Sjin. The repre-
sentatives of the affiliates are: Char-
les Rau, ER&E Technical Leader, and

The Task Force, which reports to
Lago's Assistant Technical Manager
R. A. Reitz, is scheduled to complete
its assignment in four to six months.
Briefly stated, the oil reported as
lost is the difference between the
measured weight of all oil coming in
to Lago and the weight of oil that is
moved out of Lago as product or is
consumed in operations. An attempt
is made to reconcile this input/output
difference. Losses that are identifia-
ble in Lago's operations (such as

tank evaporation, losses to flares,
etc.) are called "known" losses. The
portion of the difference that cannot
be reconciled is referred as "unac-

STIP Proves to Be I

New Employees Job T
The STIP (Skill Training Improve-
ment Program) introduced at Lago
since October 1974 is proving to be a
constant and efficient tool for impar-
ting theoretical and practical know-
ledge not only to present craftsmen,
but to new employees as well. Re-
cent employees hired for the Mecha-
nical Department have the advantage
of this comprehensive and efficient
skills training program from the very
Several groups of new Mechanical
employees have already completed
several basic courses of the STIP pro-
gram and will continue receiving
these training programs in the Me-
chanical Training Center until they
have acquired the essential theoreti-
cal and practical knowledge for their
specific trade. These courses are
being handled by several instructors
selected from among the mechanical
supervisory personnel.
One mechanical group of new em-
ployees already completed courses
such as : Operate Motorized Hoisting
Equipment, Remove & Install Valve
Packing, Hand Bending of Tube and
Small Pipe, Material Handling, Instal-
lation of Threaded Piping, Basic Me-
tals and Pedestal Grinder. These
modules include over 80 hours of
classroom and lab instruction.

nportant Tool to Teach

theory and Skills Rapidly
One group of electrical craftsmen
and trainees is also currently enga-
ged in a STIP training program in
Control Systems and related subjects
to increase their skills proficiency.
