EXXON RESTRICTS CAPITAL INVESTMENTS

Lago special projects affected


Due to world-wide market conditions and the uncertain
outlook in the oil industry, Exxon has called on all
affiliates, including Lago, to restrain capital invest-
ments. Most of Lago's major capital projects planned
during the past few years have been affected by this
restraint. Those projects, estimated to cost over $100
million and planned for execution over a period of five
years, are being overseen by the Special Projects Depart-
ment established in September of 1980.
In March of 1981, Lago signed a contract with Procon
Incorporated, an international engineering/construc-
tion company, to be the prime contractor for the engi-
neering, procurement and construction of these special
projects.
These projects included a Grassroots Butane Isomeriza-


tion Unit, the Utilities Modernization Project, Visbrea-
ker Debottlenecking projects, and a large number of
energy conservation projects resulting from an energy
conservation survey conducted by ER&E in early 1980.
"Upon receipt of the capital restraint notice from Exxon,
as well as changes in other economic factors, the total
budget for these special projects was reduced to about
$60 million over the same time period (through 1985). At
this level of capital expenditure it is more cost effective
for Lago to assume complete responsibility for construc-
tion of these projects, utilizing local contractors directly,
rather than through the prime contractor," said Marci-
ano Angela, Manager of the Special Projects
Department.

EXXON TA REDUCI CAPITAL DI INVERSION

Proyectonan di Lago a wordo afecta


Como rcsultado di e condition mundial di mercado y e
incertidumbre di e industrial petrolera, Exxon a haci un
yamada riba tur su afiliadonan, incluyendo Lago, pa
pone un restriccion riba inversion di capital.
Mayoria di e projectonan cu ta exigi mas hopi capital, cu
a wordo planca durante e ultimo anjanan, a wordo
afecta pa e restriccion aki. E proyectonan ey, calcula na
un gasto di mas di $100 miyon y planea pa ehecucion den
un period di cinco anja, ta wordo maneha pa Special
Projects Department, cual a ser estableci na September
1980.
Na Maart 1981, Lago a firma un contract cu Procon
Incorporated, un compania international di ingenieria y
construction, pa ta e contratista principal di ingenieria,
percuracion y construction di e proyectonan special aki.
E proyectonan ta inclui un Unidad nobo pa Isomeriza-
cion di Butano, un Proyecto di Modernizacion di Uti-
lidad, Proyecto di Conversacion di Visbreaker, y un
cantidad di proyectonan pa conservation di energia cu a
wordo plane despues cu un enquesta di conservation di
energia a wordo conduci pa ER& E na comienzo di 1980.
"Ora cu Lago a ricibi notificacion di Exxon pa restringi
capital, y ora cu cambionan a tuma lugar den economic,
e presupuesto total di e proyectonan special a word
baha te cu $60 miyon durante e mesun period (te cu
1985).
Na e nivel aki di gastonan di capital, a result di ta mas
economic pa Lago tuma tur responsabilidad pa con-
struccion di e proyectonan, usando contratistanan local
directamente, en vez di traha via e contratista principal


(Procon)," Marciano Angela, Manager di Special Pro-
jects Department, a bisa.
Un convenio cu Procon a wordo haci den cual Procon a
haci entrega di tur responsabilidad di construction desde
dia 1 diJuli, 1982. Sinembargo, Procon lo sigi encarga cu
ingenieria y percuracion di actividadnan di e proyecto-
nan, y un cantidad chiquito di miembronan di gerencia
di construction di Procon a wordo integra den e organi-
zacion di construction di Special Projects, encabeza pa
Luis Anjie. (Cont. riba pag. 6)

LSF awards seven,

and renews 54 grants

The Lago Scholarship Foundation, in its 26th year of
existence, has granted seven new scholarships and rene-
wed 54 grants for the 1982/1983 school year.
Up to this year, Lago has made it possible for 441 persons
to acquire a profession abroad, starting with the first 40
grants awarded at the Foundation's birth in 1957.
All applicants for Lago scholarships are subjected to the
following criteria: results of the Lago test and the Scho-
lastic Aptitude Test, the applicant's scholastic record.
whether the chosen college/university is accredited and
professionally recognized, whether the desired course ol
study would fulfill Aruba's needs, and the applicant's
financial need.
"Based on the above, the LSF Board, consisting of six
members, decides which applicants have the most poten-
tial for successfully completing their studies.
As long as children of Lago employees who meet the
above criteria have a good chance of succeeding in their
course of study, they will be given priority over non-
employee's children," said Carlos de Cuba, Secretary-
/Treasurer of the LSF.
During his study, the student has to maintain acceptable
grades as stipulated in the academic standards set by the
Foundation.
"The only other obligation the recipients of Lago scho-
larships have is to return to Aruba upon graduation and
work here for a minimum of three years. They are not
required to work at Lago, although it is hoped they will
apply at Lago upon completion of their studies." said
Carlos.
The new recipients of the 1982/1983 Lago scholarship
awards are as follows: Mabel Arends, daughter of Eve-
raldo Arends of the Controller's Department, Chemical
Engineering, Tulane University; Willem Brinkman, son
of Willem Brinkman of the Industrial Security Depart-
ment, Electrical Engineering, University of South
Carolina; Edward Oduber, son of annuitant Hendrik
Oduber, Chemical Engineering, Worcester Polytechnic

mann di Controller's Department.



OPEC

__ A look into the 80's
In the last two issues, the background, birth and development of
OPEC was presented.
The following part is the conclusion of that series of articles.
In response to this problem (the breakdown of OPEC's
unified pricing system, resulting from the Iranian Revo-
lution in 1979) and to the fierce upward pressure of
demand, and in an effort to narrow the price gap within
the organization, the price of Arabian light was raised
several times in 1979 and up to S/B 28 as of May 1, 1980.
In November 1980 the Arab light was increased to S/B
32, while in October 1981 it went to S/B 34.
These price increases coincided with a general economic
recession that caused some decline in product demands.
More important, however have been the results of the oil
consuming countries' efforts for conservation and substi-
tution of the overpriced products resulting in a total
world demand drop of 8% in 1981.
OPEC in 1982
The organization started 1982 expecting a reversal of
1981's crude oil demand slump. But the market discre-
dited that projection in January despite the severe wea-
ther during that month.
The members were under pressure to reduce their output
to the level ofdemand and in an emergency meeting held
in March it was decided to establish a production ceiling
of 17.5 MBD versus 20.7 earlier 1982 and maintain the
crude marker price at S/B 34.
According to OPEC, this reduction in production is
sufficient to eliminate the current surplus of stocks and
stabilize the market by 3rd quarter of this year. If'stron-
ger actions are still required the Saudi's may cut deeper
to ease the downward pressures on spot markets. It is felt
that once buyers are convinced that OPEC's actions will
arrest the price pressures and that the marker price will
hold, a steadily stronger call will be made on production.
Some analysts on the other hand consider the S/B 34
crude marker price unrealistically high and feel that
some OPEC countries might cut their prices unilaterally
to boost sales and maintain their revenues. This can
jeopardize OPEC's pricing structures and with the seas-
onal summer slump in demand, frictions within the orga-
nization are likely to increase.
Time will tell!


Den anjanan '80
Den e ultimo dos edicionnan, e background, nacemento y desaroyo
di OPEP a wordo present. E sigiente part ta e conclusion die
series di articulo ey.
Como un reaction riba e problema aki (e quiebra di e
sistema di prijs unifica di OPEP, cu a result di e Revolu-
cion Iranes na 1979) y riba e acceleration di presion pa
demand, y den un esfuerzo pa reduci e diferencianan
den prijs den e organization, e prijs di e light Arabe a
wordo aumenta diferente biaha na 1979 v te cu S/B 28
desde 1 di Mei, 1980.
Na November 1980, e light Arabe a wordo aumenta na
S/B 32, mientras cu na October 1981 ela subi na S/B 34.
E aumento di prijs aki a coincide cu un recession econom-
ico general cu a causa algun reduction den demand pa
product.
Sinembargo, mas important ainda tabata c esfucirzonan
cu paisnan consumidor di petroleo a haci pa conscrva \
substitui e productonan cu tabatin prijsnan demasiado
halto, resultando den un reduction total di 8%0 di
demand mundial na 1981.
OPEP na 1982
E organization a cuminsa 1982 sperando un cambio den
e fracaso di demand di petroleo crudo den 1981 Pcro e
mercado a desacredita e proyeccion ey naJanuari apesar
di e invierno severe durante e luna ey.
E miembronan di OPEP tabata bao presion e ora c\ pa
reduce nan production na e nivel di demand \ den un
reunion di emergencia cu a word teni na Maart. a ser
dicidi pa establece un production maximo cd 17.5 MBI)
compare cu 20.7 na comienzo di 1982, y mantene c pI ijs
fiho di crudo na S/B 34.
Di acuerdo cu OPEP, e reduction den production aki la
suficiente pa elimina e sobrante actual di pi odu to \
stabilize e mercado pa e di tries trimester di c ania aki. Si
ainda accionnan mas fuerte ta necesario, c Saudi-nan Io
reduce production mas ainda pa disminui e presion cu
tin pa baha prijs riba mercado liber.
Ta existi un sentiment cu una vez cu cumipradornan (a
convenci di cu OPEP su accionnan lo detenc e presion di
prijs, y cu e prijs fiho lo wanta, un yamada cada ve/ mas
fuerte lo wordo haci pa aumenta production.
Algun analista, di otro banda. ta consider e prijs fiho di
crudo di S/B 34 demasiado halto \ ta sinti cu algun
paisnan di OPEP lo por baha nan prils unilateralmente
pa aumenta nan venta y mantene nan entrada.
Esaki por trese OPEP su structure di prijs den pcliger. y
awor, cue demand floho cu regularmente ta tuma tlgar
den verano. probablemente desacuerdonan den e orga-
nizacion lo aumenta.
Tempo lo bisa.

Your choice: smoking or health?


Commercial advertising gives smoking a clean, fresh
image: A healthy looking man riding a horse in a wide
green field, enjoying his cigarette. Does that image por-
tray reality?
Research on smoking has not yet been conducted in
Aruba, but according to a U.S. government report,
"cigarette smoking is clearly identified as the chief pre-
ventable cause of death in our society and the most
important public health issue of our time."
Smoking in the U.S. alone is responsible for some
340,000 deaths annually.
Financially speaking, smoking accounts for $13 billion a
year spent on smoking related health care and at least
another S25 billion in lost production and wages.
It could not be said any stronger! What advertising
claims, facts contradict.
While science is trying to find solutions to solve man-
kind's problem of temporary existence, smokers are
voluntarily reducing their life span by a few years: A
smoker actually doubles his risk ofdying before the age of
65. Even smokers of cigarettes with low tar and nicotine
concentration have higher death rates than non-
smokers, as they have the tendency to satisfy their desire
for nicotine b\ smoking more and by increasing the
degree of inhalation.
Heart trouble, chronic lung and respiratory diseases,
lung cancer, cancel ofthe lip, tongue, mouth, throat and
urinary bladder are some of the diseases caused by smok-
ing. accordingg to the World Health Organization


The summer training students attended an orientation pro-
gram to become more familiar with their surroundings at
Lago. A total of over 70 college students, (summer training


report, in countries where smoking is widespread it
accounts for 90% of lung cancer deaths and 75% of deaths
from bronchitis. In other words, 90 out of a hundred
deaths caused by lung cancer and 75 out of a hundred
deaths caused by bronchitis could have been avoided if
those individuals never took up smoking!
Lung cancer, which accounts for a fourth of all cancer
deaths, fails to respond to treatment. According to a
report: Only 10% of its victims survive five years after
diagnosis.
Not surprisingly, parallel studies have shown that lung
cancer is soon likely to replace breast cancer as the
leading cause of cancer deaths among women. There has
in recent years been a steady increase of smoking among
women.
As if it were not enough to endanger one's own life,
pregnant women who smoke can cause the deformation
or death of their own fetus. One doctor said that "you
could see the child suffocate in the matrix ... probably
suffering from a temporary lack of oxigen." If this child is
not aborted from the mother's womb, he might have a
lower than normal weight at birth, have a premature
birth, die right after birth or live with birth defects.
Justifiably then, the World Health Organization is try-
ing to promote the idea that non-smoking should be
regarded as a "normal social behaviour."
Not even adult non-smokers can escape the dangers
caused by smoking. When accompanied by a smoker, or

Bo ta scoge: humamento of salud?


Propaganda commercial ta duna humamento un imagen
limpi y fresco: Un homber saludable corriendo cabai
riba un field grand y berde, disfrutando di un sigaria.
Acaso e imagen aki ta pinta realidad?
Estudionan tocante humamento no a wordo conduci na
Aruba ainda, pero segun un reportahe di gobierno di
Estados Unidos, "Humamento di sigaria ta wordo iden-
tifica claramente como e mayor causa di morto preve-
nibel den nos sociedad y e problema di salubridad
public di mas important den nos tempo. Na Merca so,
humamento ta responsabel pa mas o menos 340,000
morto annual. Financieramente, humamento ta respon-
sabel pa $13 biyon annual cu ta wordo gasta na trata-
mento di salud relaciona cu humamento y por lo menos
un otro $25 biyon mas pa production y salario cu ta bai
perdi. Mas mihor esaki no por wordo mustra! Local
propaganda ta pretend, echonan ta contradeci.
Mientras cu ciencia ta trata di haya solution pa resolve e
problema di e existencia temporario di humanidad,


humadornan voluntariamente ta reduci nan longevidad
cu un poco anja. Un humador realmente ta redobla su
risico di muri prome cu 65 anja. Hasta humadornan di
sigaria cu poco concentration di breu y nicotine tin un
grado di mortalidad mas halto cu hendenan cu no ta
huma, ya cu nan tin e tendencia di satisface nan deseo pa
nicotine door di huma mas hopi y tambe aumenta e
grado di tragamento.
Problema di curazon, malesanan cronico di pulmon y di
respiracion, cancer di pulmon, lip, lenga, boca, garganta
y blaas di urina ta algun di e malesanan cu ta wordo
causa door di humamento. Segun e reportahe die Orga-
nizacion di Salubridad Mundial, na paisnan na unda
humamento ta extenso, humamento ta responsabel pa
90% di morto causa pa cancer di pulmon, y 75% di morto
di bronquitis.
Cu otro palabra, 90 di 100 morto causa pa cancer di
pulmon y 75 di 100 causa pa bronchitis lo por a wordo
evita si e personanan ey nunca a huma!

Cancer di pulmon, cual ta responsabel pa un cuarta

Seguun n reportahe: Solamente 10% di e victimanan di

sorprendente cu estudionan similar a mustra cu cancer
di pulmon probablemente pronto lo reemplaza cancer di
pecho como e causa principal di morto di cancer entire
hende muher. Den anjanan reciente, a tuma lugar un
aumcnto constant den humamento di hende muher.
Como si fuera no ta suficiente cu un hende ta pone su

Ni siquiera adultonan cu ta abstene di humamento por

realidad, dos studio ya a indica cu e risico di cancer di
pulmon ta mas grand den hende muher cu no ta huma
cu ta casa cu humador, cu den hende muher cu no ta
huma cu ta casa cu homber cu tampoco no ta huma.
Segun Dr. J.A.M. de Ruijter, Director di Medical
Department na Lago, cu tempo, hopi empleado di Lago,
a stop di huma. "Nos ta avisa humadornan di sigaria pa
stop, pasobra tin evidencia cu si nan stop, hopi di e

the engineering and procurement activities on these pro-
jects, and a reduced number of Procon construction
management personnel have been integrated into Lago's
Special Projects construction organization headed up by
Luis Anjie.
In November of last year the Butane Isomerization pro-
ject which was to produce isobutane feed for the Alkyla-
tion unit was placed on indefinite hold when the results
of the definitive cost estimate showed a significant escal-
lation in capital investment to complete the project.
The return on investment was further reduced when the
development of another project to provide facilities for
short range supply of Hydrogen plant feed to replace
imported Venezuelan butane, showed that this lower
investment project also will provide sufficient isobutane
feed for the Alky unit.
"The construction phase of the Utilities Modernization
Project, aimed at improving reliability of equipment,
safety conditions, and efficiency in energy conservation,
is scheduled to move into full swing by the end of this
year and to be completed by the end of 1983," Rocky
said.
This project involves the erection of two boilers, the
modernization of three existing boilers, the installation
of a modern centralized control system at Powerhouse
No. 1 and a general upgrading of that powerplant.
Sight clearance for the new boilers has already started
and their delivery is scheduled for January of 1983.
Dismantling'of No. 11 boiler has been completed and the
remainder will be completed by mid 1984.
The Utilities Modernization Project involves a total
expenditure of $30 million.
Phase I of the Visbreaker debottlenecking projects
undertaken on 3 pipestills is designed to achieve 16%
conversion and increase the yield of higher valued pro-
ducts such as naphta, heating oil and gas oils, and is
proceeding on schedule. Visbreakers 5 and 6 are com-
plete, while the Visbreaker No. 8 project, which includes
installation of new charge pumps and motors is in the
construction phase and will be concluded in October
1982. (Cont. on page 8)

Five granted

LEAP awards


Otilia Goeloe, Selma Chaljub, Rudolf Boezem, Enrique
Maduro and Michael Wouters, were the fortunate reci-
pients of this year's LEAP (Lago Education Assistance
Program) awards.
The LEAP is awarded to Lago employees with at least
one year of service, who have demonstrated their ability
and motivation to further their education abroad, in a
discipline of direct Lago interest.
Tila will be studying Business Administration at the
Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green,
Ohio. Selma will follow the same course of study at
Mitchell College in New London, Connectitut. Rudolf
will study to become a Chemical Engineer at the Univer-
sity of Ohio in Toledo, Ohio. Enrique and Michael are
already attending the Worcester Polytechnic Institute in
Worcester, Massachusetts, where they are studying
Mechanical Engineering.
Lots of success!

Phase II, which would increase conversion to the 20%
level and require much larger capital investments, has
been postponed indefinitely due to serious product qual-
ity questions at these higher conversion levels, that have
to be resolved before these projects can proceed.
The fourth major area affected by the capital constraints
and the world-wide market condition is the energy con-
servation projects. All the projects identified by ER&E
to have attractive return on the then forecasted market
prices have been developed through the process design

and specification phase and will be cost estimated.
However, in the budget period through 1985. onl five
smaller Encon projects totalling about 515 million now
have attractive enough returns on investments to be
considered for further development.
The balance of the Encon projects will be put on hold
indefinitely afler screening cost estimates are completed
on them later this year.
With the current scope of major capital projects, con-
struction will peak in 1983 at about 250 men level, the
majority of which will be from the local construction
workforce.
