Controller's Department

Reorganized

During the past few months, a number of organizational
changes were effected in the Controller's Department. The
changes were mainly in the areas of work consolidation within
the department itself; consolidation with functions of other
departments; regrouping of functions, and in some cases the
establishment of new sections to improve the department's
effectiveness in providing service.
A recent change was the transfer of the Documentation Group
from the Planning and Control Section in the Oil Movements
Division to Controller's, effective October 1, 1981.
This transfer was made at the recommendation of the Oil Loss
Task Force with the objective of strengthening controls on oil
loss accounting matters.
This change is part of Lago's action directed towards
identifying, reducing, controlling and improving
accountability of oil loss.
V D Tjin-Tham-Sjin, presently Special Projects Leader in the
Accounting Division has been named Advisor and Functional
Supervisor of this group, with responsibility for
implementation of recommendations and further
improvements related to oil loss and oil accounting.
Luciano Krozendijk, Accountant in the Financial Reporting
and Analysis Section, has been designated Supervisor of this
section.

Instructor John Peterson giving explanation of refractory gunning


Technical Department Sponsors


Refractory Training Course

A 4-day Refractory Training course was recently sponsored
by the Technical Department for Technical and Mechanical
employees as well as local contractor employees.
Participating in this course were also representatives from the
Manref (Nicaragua), and Rasa (San Salvador) refineries.
Course coordinator was Luis Giel of the Technical
Department and the course leaders were Stan Bronson and
John Peterson of Exxon Research and Engineering.
What is refractory, its use and importance in Petroleum
Refineries? We went to Luis Giel for the answers and here is
what we got.

What are refractories?

Refractories are non-metalic materials which exhibit very
good physical and chemical stability in high-temperature
environments where metals are unsuitable. All refractories
have some weaknesses that must be accomodated by the
design. This weakness can be poor resistance to thermal
shock, chemical attack, corrosion etc. Refractory
performance in all cases is never as flawless as has been our
experience with most application of metals

Why are refractories used?
Environmental conditions in equipment dictate what
construction materials will be required. In most cases metals
are used up to about 5000 F for pressure and total process
containment (furnace casing etc.), Refractory materials are
used as a liner to prevent metal temperatures from exceeding,
whatever is felt to be that allowable maximum Apart from
offering high temperature resistance, refractory materials can
provide high resistance to heat transfer, abrasion, erosion,
and corrosion in many applications where metals are
inadequate. Without the use of refractories, heat losses would
be economically unacceptable in furnaces, boilers, and some
vessels. In addition without it the overall containing structure
could not be constructed.

Importance of Refractory in Petroleum Industries.
In refineries such as ours, where maintenance of high heat
temperatures is required, refractory is of utmost importance.
There are many different refractory products, most of which
are specifically designed to cope with specific operating
conditions. Manufacturers, consumers and ASTM all
"classify" refractories but each in somewhat different manner.
Success with refractories depends on quality products,
proper selection, proper curing and initial heat-up, and
operating conditions. The training program's objective was to
provide an up-date for those who work with it in the refinery.

Safe Practices and Work

Permit Rules and Procedures

now in Programmed Learning

Format

To improve on-the-job safety at Lago, the Safety Section
recently acquired a S T.I.P. Module for use in teaching the
purposes and uses of the manual of "Safe Practices" and
"Work Permit Rules and Procedures".
This audio-visual training program was developed jointly by
Lago's Safety Section and the National Photographic
Laboratory Inc. of Houston it is a complete instructional unit,
consisting of slides of Lago's refinery facilities,
accompanying casettes, programmed worksheet exercises
and criteria tests.
The course which provides step-by-step directions on actual
classroom administration is not intended to replace
classroom instruction, but to provide a learning basis which
the trainer can use with his own expertise.
Exercises are designed to provide immediate testing of the
knowledge acquired in the slide/tape segment. The course
has an eight-hour design. Administration time, however,
varies with individual instructor, class size and the amount of
discussion encouraged.
The program also includes a test which the instructor may use
as a pre-test to demonstrate the trainee's grasp of
performance objectives outlined in the sessions.
This new program was initiated in July by Industrial Hygiene.
Safety Section for Lago and Contractor employees. The use
of this Program is aimed at increasing the safety awareness of
everyone working on the Lago concession.

Lago Helps employees and

family to prepare for Coral

Gables Move

During the week of October 19, 1981, the first group of
employees and families leaves to take up their assignments in
the newly formed Lago Planning and Supply Organization in
Coral Gables Thus far the move to Coral Gables has been
proceeding smoothly
When employees were approached about the move to Coral
Gables a number of questions and concerns were raised
Employees wanted to know about housing, schooling
facilities for their children and how their child would fit into
the American school system. What were Lago's policies
governing the move? In an effort to address these questions
and make the transition smooth Lago took certain initiatives
First, Dr. Bert Kleiman, Superintendent of the Dade County
School was invited to Aruba Dr. Klelman visited with officials
of our local department of Education to get acquainted with
the Aruban School System, its curriculum and the
requirements the children will have to meet upon return.
Arrangements also were made for Mr John Grupe of Esso
Inter-America's ER Department and a representative of
Stadler Associates, a real estate relocation group, to come to
Aruba to cover the orientation process in Florida with the
group and to provide them with information on real estate
rental market On August 11, an all-day information session
was held with employees and their wives at the Esso Club. The
session covered such topics as
Orientation on the American School System in general and
the Dade County School in particular. The educational
capabilities of the Dade County System were fully explained
and private sessions held with those parents who had specific
questions, slides presentations of the Coral Gables area,
including information on available housing, costs and general
living conditions were presented A special English course
was begun at the Seroe Colorado School for the children
moving to Florida When the S.C, schoolyear started in
September, these children began attending classes and
commenced the orientation process to the American
educational program At the same time, they continued their
English language classes When they arrive in Miami and
enter the local school system they will be tested for english
proficiency and be given special training to reach a level of
proficiency permitting them to follow the normal class work
for their age group
All employees and their wives had a house-hunting trip to
Florida Each was assigned a real estate representative who
helped them locate acceptable housing All were able to settle
their housing problems during these visits Interviews held
with some of the wives indicate that they are happy with the
way the move has gone thus far. "Florida has a lot to offer, a lot
of activities and places for children to visit Although it is a big
change, I am looking forward to it" said one of the wives.
Lago and EIA have coordinated the big move and are pleased
to see that many of the initial concerns have been eliminated.
The Company is well aware of the stresses and problems such
moves can present and recognizes the need to minimize them

identities and formulates key Lago objectives and
implementation strategies related to such issues as optimum
sizing/processing capability of refining operations; major
investment program identification, initial screening and
implementation timing in close coordination with Lago's
Technical Department and Exxon Research and Engineering.
In addition this department identifies long range investment
opportunities and participates in Longe Range Strategy
studies potentially impacting on Lago operations. John
