In the course of 1981, we have started in new directions
that will ultimately lead to significant changes in the
way our business is managed
To meet the growing demand forservices by customers
and affiliates and for technical support by the various
refinery activities, we reconstructed and streamlined
our functions through the creation of the Lago Planning
and Supply unit in Coral Gables and through major
reorganizations in the Technical, Process and
Controller's Departments
We embarked on an organization improvement effort
and have committed virtually all our management
personnel to analyzing the way we function and interact
as a team and to finding ways to improve our overall
efficiency and productivity.
Stewardship committees were established for Labor
Relations and Safety to coordinate and improve our
efforts in both areas
Exxon approved a 30 million dollar investment to
modernize equipment to assure a continued and
reliable source of power to the Lago refinery.
All developments, however, were not positive We did
have several disappointments: Firstly, for the second
consecutive year our safety performance has been
below an acceptable level. We have had fatalities in both
1980 and 1981 an increased number of traffic accidents
and a continued high level of employee off-the-job
accidents. Secondly, we have not been successful in
implementing a training and upgrade program for our
Process operators. Thirdly, we have several operational
upsets and unscheduled outages, including a total
refinery shutdown that impaired our ability to meet
operating commitments
We must find ways to halt these trends Maintaining a
climate of security and safety in our work place is
essential for the protection of ourselves and our
families, while increasing our ability to adjust and
improve as business conditions change are key factors
for continued commitment of resources and funds to
assure our future
In 1982, we will need to continue our efforts to minimize
unit outages and equipment failures and to cope with
new situations such as the chronic shortage of water
Housekeeping has visibly improved in the refinery, but
your continued support of our CLEAR goals is required
to make the improvements last The extensive
organization improvement program presently
underway will continue unabated while we will intensify
our efforts to upgrade the skills of our workforce
But 1982 will certainly bring its own unique challenges
We will be negotiating a new labor contract with the
Union in the latter part of the year. It is our objective to
achieve a settlement that is fair and reasonable to all
concerned and to make 1982 one of the best ever
experienced by the Lago organization
To all employees, annuitants and their families, on
behalf of Lago Management, I extend best wishes for a
happy and joyful Holiday Season

This is how the main entrance will look after the renovation.


G.O.B. Office upgrade

project
Lago presently has a project to upgrade the General Office
Building (G 0 B.) and to install a new airconditioning system
to replace the existing system.
Prior to G.O B renovations, a temporary office building will
be constructed in the parking lot east of the G.O.B. to house
personnel during renovations. Construction on this office will
begin January 1982
The new airconditioning system has been designed with
energy conservation as a major criteria. The new system will
utilize highly efficient centrifugal compressors for the
refrigeration cycle. Also waste heat exchangers will be used to
recover the required reheat capability for humidity control
throughout the G.O.B Other energy saving items include
insulation of the building roof and replacement of all exterior
windows with tinted thermal glass. The first area to be
renovated will be the Building entrance and lobby area. This
will be done during January 1982.
Renovation of the remainder of the Building is scheduled to
begin in May 1982 and includes a new suspended ceiling
which will incorporate a new lighting system and the new
airco system. All walls will be covered with vinyl wall covering
and floors will be carpeted Existing doors will be recovered
with plastic laminate and reinstalled using new hardware and
signace. A new lunch eating area will be located on the second
floor south of the existing restrooms.
Constructions will be executed in four phases:
- Phase I 2nd Floor East Wing
- Phase II 2nd Floor West Wing
- Phase III 1st Floor West Wing
- Phase IV 1st Floor East Wing
The overall construction period is scheduled for completion
in second quarter of 1984.

Pipestill no. 6

back in operation

after smooth turn-around
After having been down for close to 70 days for major turn-
around, Pipestill no. 6 went back on stream on November 1,
1981. The unit was started up smoothly with essentially all the
new projects commissioned.
The turn-around was a challenge for Mechanical Department
employees because the last major turn-around done with
Lago forces was performed a number of years ago.
During the time the unit was down, 88 Mechanical employees
were engaged in major maintenance work as well as in
completing 15 projects directed towards improving the unit's
effectiveness in heavy crude processing, conversion, safety,
and reliability.
Among the jobs done were: complete replacement of
visbreaker furnace tubes, major refractory work in visbreaker
and crude furnaces, installation of the fuels blowdown
system, upgrade of visbreaker furnace charge lines,
installation of the visbreaker back pressure control valve,
exchanger flushing system, installation of a catwalk between
evaporator and feed drum and the upgrade of the visbreaker
soakers and safety valves purge facilities.
Apart from Mechanical employees, a number of contractor
employees assisted with the refractory work inside the
furnaces and clean-up.
















Francisco Vos together with Croes of Mechanical are welding the
tubes.
Pipestill no. 6 is now the first unit with visbreaker section
upgraded to operate at higher pressure, which will hopefully
increase distillate yield.
The overall expenditures in material and laboron this T/A and
Project work was in the vicinity of $4.6 million.
The Turn-around Coordinator was J.C. Hermans and the
Turn-around Planner was C. Lade of the Mechanical
Department. Also 15 other supervisors of Mechanical
Department were involved in this turn-around.
Projects Coordinators D.R. Henriquez and G. Lovegrovefrom
the Technical Department were responsible for projects
execution and cost monitoring. The Process Department was
involved in the preparation of the equipment.
The turn-around was successfully carried out in a spirit of
good cooperation and teamwork, across departments and all
are to be congratulated.


Pipestill no. 6 ta

back den operation

despues di un

turn-around suave
Despues cu Pipestill no. 6 a wordo baha pa un turn-around di
70 dia e a bai den operation atrobe dia prome di November,
1981. E unit a wordo gestart safe cu tur e projectonan nobo
autorsa.
E turn-around tabata un desafio pa empleadonan di
Mechanical Department, ya cue ultimo turn-around grand cu
a wordo hasi door di empleadonan di Lago tabata algun anja
pasa.
Durante e tempo cu e unit a wordo baja, 88 empleado di
Mechanical Department tabata envolvi den trabao di
mantencion grand y tambe a complete 15 projectonan cu
tabata dirigi pa drecha e eficiencia pa process crudo pisa,
conversion, safety y confiabilidad.
Entre e trabaonan cu a wordo hasi ta cambiamento complete
di e tuberianan di e forno di visbreaker, trabao di refractory
den e fornonan di visbreaker y crudo, instalacion di e fuels
blowdown system, upgrade di e visbreaker furnace charge
lines, instalacion di e visbreaker back pressure control valve,
exchanger flushing system, instalacion di un pasadisoentree
evaporator y feed drum y e upgrade di e visbreaker soakers y
safety valve purge facilities.
Fuera di empleadonan di Mechanical algun empleado di
contratista a asisti cu trabao di refractory paden di e forno y cu

Lago's Bunkering Facilities
Contributing to Aruba's tourist growth are the Lago
Bunkering facilities at the Oranjestad harbor and the "Reina
Beatrix" International Airport. These facilities provide for
fueling of over 9,000 aircraft and 300 350 ships per year.
Lago's permanent marine bunkering facilities started
operating on December 22, 1960, coincident with the island
Government's efforts to attract more tourist ships. Prior to
these installations, bunkering of ships in Oranjestad harbor
was carried out by Lago dispatched-barges, which was a
costly and time consuming operation.
The facilities consisted of a 23,200-barrel tank of fuel oil, a
20,300-barrel tank for diesel oil, a 6464-barrel gas oil tank,
product and air lines running to valve pits at four different
locations
With the growing demand for bunkers in Oranjestad harbor,
Lago in 1963 and in 1970, built two more fuel oil storage tanks
increasing total capacity to 230,000 barrels.
In October 1975, operation of the bunkering facilities,
formerly done by Lago Marketing personnel, was turned over
to Maduro & Sons agents Lago's Marketing arranges with
Product Coordination for movement of fuel oil, marine diesel
and gas oil to our Oranjestad bunkering facilities by tankers
dispatched from San Nicolas harbor.
The throughput at the Oranjestad facilities averages
approximately 700,000 barrels a year. This translated into
bunkering of 300 to 350 ships a year calling from all parts of
the world. The types of ships bunkered are tourist, freighters,
tankers, tugboats, etc.
The cruise ships alone bring approximately 70,000 tourist to
our island a year,

American Airlines Jetliner being fueled at "Reina Beatrlx
International Airport".

Aviation fueling at the Airport
The fueling of all aircraft at the "Aeropuerto International
Reina Beatrix" is carried out by Lago forces working for the
Marketing Department. Lago began operations at the airport
in 1952 delivering aviation gasoline to aircraft calling to
Aruba.
Over the years many things have changed.
With the growth of the tourist industry (200,000 tourists thru
December 2, 1981 arriving at the airport) and the change of jet
aircraft, larger storage tanks were required. At present,
storage capacity at the airport in tankage and refueler trucks
is 125,000 gallons for jet fuel and 20,000 gallons for aviation
gasoline. The fueling is carried out via refuelers of which there
are two large tank wagons of 10,000 gals capacity each and
one of 5,000 gals capacity. For the aviation'gasoline there is
one 2,000 gals capacity truck, which also hauls the aviation
gasoline from the refinery to the airport. The jet fuel is also
hauled via 2 trucks to the airport, one having 8,000 gals
capacity and the other 10,000 gals capacity.

The effectiveness of our communication is often difficult to
evaluate because communication covers so many different
means and is affected by other factors. However, this survey
does provide a base-line of data against which our
communication effectiveness can and will be measured again
in the coming months.
Although the communications survey is completed, we will
still appreciate comments that can improve the effectiveness
of our communication.

(continued from page 5)


To insure that the jet fuel supplies to customers is of the best
quality, the fuel is filtered four times before it goes into the
aircraft. To start with, the fuel is filtered at the Refinery
Loading Rack when loading, then filtered for the second time
as it is pumped from the truck into the airport storage tanks,
The third filtering occurs when the fuel is pumped from airport
tankage into the refueler truck and the fourth as it is passed
through the refueling filters into the aircraft. All precautions
are taken by the personnel at the airport to make sure the jet
fuel is of top quality

Including private aircraft Lago's personnel at the airport
consists of one operations supervisor and 10 employees to
handle some 9,000 aircraft a year Fueling loads vary from 15
gallons for smaller private aircraft to 20,000 gallons for the
large jets

Parties


Fiesta


Might as well recognize this fact of life for some people "a few
drinks" is the highlight of a holiday get-together.

When drinking is overdone a little bit it can lead to fooling
around and temper flareups that could injure people and
damage furniture.

But the serious danger is the drinking driver It's a fact that
drinking is a factor in at least half of all fatal accidents.

If it's your party, don't overdo it when you pour the drinks;
keep them reasonable.

If you're drinking at someone else's party and planning to
drive home follow the one-for-one rule. It takes your body
about one hour to rid itself of the alcohol in one drink.
So keep to no more than one drink an hour and stop drinking
one hour before driving.

You don't want all the holiday joy to go up in smoke so be sure
you furnish plenty of large, deep ashtrays forthe smokers. It's
a fact that many home fires start from the actions of careless
smokers. Empty the ashtrays often and in a safe place.

Try to prepare as much food as possible ahead of time so you
can get it ready for serving with little or no help. Make the
kitchen "off limits" to children in a friendly way. Overcrowding
and confusion in the kitchen is a perfect setting foraccidents.
