OIF's to continue with OI effort

The world business environment as well as people's
needs and wishes are undergoing constant changes. Or-
ganizations have had to develop methods of managing
within those changes so as to maintain or achieve even
more effectiveness.
Organization Improvement, or OI, as we know it here
at Lago, is similar to efforts going on in many places in
the Exxon circuit and in other companies all over the
world. The goal is to improve the organization by open-
ing up opportunities for employees to increase their
productivity and teamwork to better respond to change.
While the Management II workshops, held as part of OI
during the last year, have been formally completed,
Lago has named two Organization Improvement Facili-
tators (OIF's), Robby Arends from the Process Depart-
ment and Marvin Dupersoy from the Mechanical De-
partment, to help continue with the 01 effort.
"The main role of the OIF's will be to "facilitate" OI at
operating levels in those Departments and to further as-
sist 2nd line Supervisors in follow-through on action
plans coming out of the Management II workshops,"
said Bill Brenneman, Lago's Organizational Develop-
ment (OD) Training Advisor.

Cavallaro succeeds

Per Nord as Lago VP

Antonio Cavallaro
A Director and
Vice President
of Lago



Antonio Cavallaro, former Manager of Motoring Sales,
Esso Italiana, recently arrived in Aruba to succeed Per
Nord in the position of a Director and Vice President of
Mr. Cavallarojoined Exxon in 1960, and since then has
held several positions in the refining function, including
Manager of the SARPOM Refinery in Trecate, Man-
ager of the Augusta Refinery and Retail Manager of
Esso Italiana. On behalf of Lago, welcome to Mr.
Cavallaro, his wife Marina and his children Marco,
Lorenzo and Pietro.

According to Bill, one of the first jobs of the OIF's will
be to take a lead role in conducting the First Line
Supervisory Training later this year. "OIF's will also be
following though with the First Line Training partici-
pants to assist them in on-the-job application of the
skills developed through the training workshops."
To partly prepare themselves for these tasks, Robby and
Marvin along with Jopie Croeze of Lago's Technical
Department recently attended OI training seminars in
Indianapolis, Indiana, and visited with employees fil-
ling similar roles at Exxon U.S.A.'s Baytown Refinery.
Robby commented: "Baytown started implementing
OI about four years ago, and has seen many improve-
ments as a result. They have one OIC (in Baytown they
are called OI Coordinators) in every division of the

Exxon Update

Bayway Refinery Capacity Reduced
Exxon U.S.A. announced recently it will reduce the re-
fining capacity of the Bayway refinery, from 265,000
barrels a day to 100,000 B/D over the next year. A por-
tion of the crude oil processing equipment will be shut
down, while some of the reduced crude oil runs will be
offset by increased production in the Company's Gulf
Coast refineries.
Due to a continuing excess refining capacity, the Bay-
way Refinery had already been operating at reduced
levels this year. The Bayway Refinery in Linden, New
Jersey, is one of the five major refineries Exxon operates
in the U.S.A.
850 Service Stations to Close
About 850 service stations in five states of the U.S.A.
will be sold or shut down over the next year, involving
sales of about 18,000 B/D of gasoline. Heating oil dis-
tribution will also be discontinued in the affected mark-
ets, causing the shutdown of about 80 heating oil distri-
butors and the withdrawal of 5,000 B/D of distillates
from those markets.
Goal is to Become More Effective
At this year's annual shareholder's meeting held in New
York, Exxon Corporation Chairman Cliff C. Garvin Jr.,
commented on decisions as published above: "Over the
past year, we have taken a number of steps to make us
more competitive in the markets in which we partici-
pate. We are shutting down refinery capacity that is

Process and Mechanical Departments and they have
many other employees that have gone through the OIC
training process. In Baytown we observed and partici-
Hilton Hassell pated in workshops, we reviewed the materials they use
Engineering Associate in training and learned how they set their goals and
Technical Department priorities. Baytown was a good experience; the OIC's
S"got their training from Organizational Development ex-
tr -, perts and the organization was a good example of the
01 effort."
SJopie who has seen improvements in his section coming
from application of management skills covered in Man-
agement II, firmly believes that the OI effort will suc-
ceed at Lago.
"Once employees understand that an improved Lago is
to their own benefit, I think they will be willing to get
Reuben Lacl involved. With approaches like improving teamwork,
Area Supervisor employees can improve on the way they are doing their
Mechanical Department jobs, save time, create a better working environment,
/ and receive more personal satisfaction, while improving
/ the organization."

Efraim Tromp Marvin said that a very important ingredient in the OI
Shift Supervisor effort is the involvement of employees. "Their ideas for
Process Department improvement and their commitment to see results will
make OI happen. The 01 effort has to take place from
top management level to the wage earner level and with
Concerted efforts and a willingness to adapt to change,
improvements will definitely occur." Marvin also said
that the OI effort is a continuing process, because "you
constantly have to adapt to changing situations."

Lightering operations: a challenge

Joe van der Linde has qualified as Aruba's first lightering master

About five years ago, at a time when the demand for
crude was high, and the reefberths were full with ships
waiting for shore transshipment, lightering operations
were initiated at Lago as an alternative.
"Lightering" refers to the transfer of crude at sea from
one ship (usually a ULCC Ultra Large Crude Carrier
- or a VLCC Very Large Crude Carrier) to another
(usually an MST Medium Size Tanker).
Lightering operations for all Exxon affiliates are
handled by Esso Tankers Incorporated (ETI) in New
York. ETI also customarily furnished Lago's lightering
operations with their own lightering master, until a few
months ago when Joe van der Linde, one of Lago's for-
mer docking masters, was tested by ETI and qualified
to become Aruba's first lightering master. The lighter-
ing master is the one in charge of the complete lighter-
ing operation. "I considered it a challenge to qualify as
a lightering master. Most lightering masters have had
many more years of experience prior to becoming a
lightering master than I have," said Joe, who has only
been working at Process Department's Oil Movements
and Shipping Division for the past seven years.

Prior to positioning the rubber fenders to the Medium Size Tan-
ker, the fenders have to be inspected and wires attached to them.
Above, fron left to right, B. van Duin, P. Loefstop, E. Dubero,
A. Ponson, E. Ridderstap and J. van der Linde.

"You have to have nerves of steel to remain calm under
the difficult situations that can arise on sea. Joe was
rated as one of Lago's best docking masters and was re-
commended by us to ETI to be tested. ETI sets very
high standards for lightering masters," said Ken Brook,
former Division Superintendent of the Oil Movements
and Shipping Division.
Lightering operations at Lago usually start early in the
morning at about 5:00 a.m. when the wind is calm. At
that time Joe, along with Bert van Duin, who is being
trained by Joe to become a lightering master, and six
riggers, Pablo Loefstop, Everaldo Dubero, Arnold Pon-
son, Emi Ridderstap, Mike Vrolijk and Lucio Beau-
man, start placing all necessary materials, such as hoses
and ropes, on board of the MST and the VLCC/ULCC.
After the rubber fenders are positioned alongside the
MST, Joe along with five riggers embark on that ship,
while Bert with one rigger go on the VLCC/ULCC.
After Joe discusses the operation and reaches an under-

standing with the captain of the ship, the journey be-
Lago's selected area for lightering is about 18 km west
of Aruba, where the wind factor and the sea current
minimize risks during transfer. After two hours of sail-
ing from the San Nicolas Harbor, the vessels arrive at
the selected area. Joe then directs the MST to about 1
beam (the width of a ship) parallel off the VLCC/
ULCC, adjusts the speed to that vessel's and then, while
both ships are moving, he directs the MST closer to the
VLCC/ULCC until the fenders of the MST barely
touch her. Once that climactic point is reached, wires
are sent out to hold the MST along the VLCC/ULCC.
When the MST is completely moored, the VLCC/
ULCC slows down, heads into the current and then an-
chors. The riggers along with the other crewmembers
connect the hoses, and the lightering master along with
Bert complete a list of check-ups: they measure the
crude, take watercuts (measurement of the water on
bottom of the tank) and crude temperature on the
VLCC/ULCC, and measure the ballast and the slop
and conduct a dry tank inspection of the MST. A com-
plete safety inspection and an anti-pollution check is al-
so conducted. During the transfer of the crude, which
can take anywhere from 5 to 14 hours, depending on
the quantity transferred, the lightering master con-
stantly remains alert for any alterations in the weather
and checks the wires and the overall behavior of the
ships with the assistance of two riggers who remain on
shift on a rotation basis.
Lightering operations, such as this, have taken place
about 130 times at Lago in the past five years, with +
50,000,000 (fifty million) barrels of crude transferred.
After all the crude has been transferred and final check-
ups are made, the ships return to the San Nicolas Har-
bor, where the local crew goes ashore. The MST even-
tually proceeds to its next destination, while the VLCC/
ULCC mostly remains anchored.
In the meanwhile, 24 hours or more have transpired. A
full day of activity at sea. One must obviously enjoy
challenge, excitement and hard work, in order to do
this job well

17 countries participate

in Fire Program
In September, the Fire Section of the Industrial Security
Department conducted two Fire Training Programs for
a total of 49 participants from 17 different countries.
The 40-hour course involved a basic but extensive train-
ing in multiple facets of fire fighting. All participants
received ample experience in the extinguishment of ac-
tual fires, working alone and as a member of a team.
They received instruction in the types and operation of
various fire fighting equipment; the use of water, foam
and dry chemicals in extinguishing fires; the use of self
contained breathing apparatus (S.C.B.A.), and rescue
of injured persons. Safety was also continuously em-
phasized during the training.
The first one-week course was conducted in English and
included Exxon employees from Barbados, Bahamas,
Bermuda, Haiti, Jamaica, Surinam, Nicaragua, Guate-
mala, Puerto Rico and Panama. Several members of
Shell in Curacao and of the Aruba Fire Department also
attended. The second Fire Training Program for Exxon
employees from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, El Salva-
dor, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua was con-
ducted in Spanish.


Participants in the Fire Training Program held in September at
the Lago Fire Training Ground, received ample training in the
extinguishment of actual fires.
This is the second year Lago provided fire training to
participants from overseas. "We have excellent facili-
ties, good equipment and a good safety record here and
word gets around. Last year we even had one partici-
pant from Thailand. We're getting more requests for
training from overseas than time permits us to give right
now", saidJacinto "Chin" Harms, Lago's Fire Chief and
Coordinator of the Fire Training Program. Chin was
assisted in the instruction by Pete Rasmijn, Fire Tech-
nician, and by Lago Volunteer Fire Brigade Captains,
Ernie Williams, "Papie" Willems, Juan Kock and Errol
Bernhard Kalis, captain of the Aruba Lago Emergency
Rescue Team (ALERT), and Henke Peters of the Dive
Rescue Team also provided instruction in their respec-
tive areas.
All of Lago's senior professional and volunteer fire
fighting personnel have advanced training in fire pro-
tection and many have taken additional courses in the
U.S.A. Chin, for example, in his eight years as Fire
Chief and Instructor, has visited Texas A&M and
several other recognized institutions to gain knowledge
on improvements in equipment and facilities.
"The idea is to return and incorporate pertinent im-
provements at Lago. That's why we now have such an
excellent program with increasing requests for partici-
pation from abroad", Chin said.

Department di Lago recientemente a atende seminario
di entrenamento di MO na Indianapolis, Indiana y a
bishita empleado cu tin e mesun trabow na Baytown
Refinery di Exxon U.S.A.
Robbie a comenta: "Baytown a cuminza implement
MO mas o menos cuatro anja pasa, y a ripara hopi me-
horacion como resultado di esey. Nan tin un OIC (na
Baytown nan ta wordo yama Coordinador di MO) den
tur division di e departamentonan Process y Mechanical
y nan tin hopi otro empleado cu a participa den e
process di entrenamento di MO. Na Baytown nos a ob-
serva y participa den workshop, nos a revisa material-
nan cu nan ta uza den entrenamento y nos a sinja con
nan ta coordina nan meta y prioridad. Baytown tabata

Jopie, kende a wak mehoracion den su seccion cu a re-
sulta di e aplicacion di abilidad di gerencia cu a word
cubri den Management II, ta kere firmemente cu e es-
fuerzonan pa MO lo tin bon resultado na Lago. "Una
vez empleadonan compronde cu un mihor Lago ta be-
neficia nan mes, mi ta kere cu nan lo kier compromete
nan mes mas. Cu e uzo di metodonan manera mehora-
cion di trabow den grupo, empleadonan por mehora
nan manera di traha, spaar tempo, crea un mihor am-
biente na trabow, y haya mas satisfaccion personal
mientras cu e organization ta wordo mehora."
Marvin a bisa cu un ingredient masha important den
MO ta e dedicacion di empleadonan." Nan ideanan pa
mehoracion y nan empenjo pa wak resultado lo result
den MO. E esfuerzonan di MO mester tuma lugar for di
e nivel di mas halto di gerencia pa e nivel di empleado

surplus to our needs, and upgrading the rest to increase
our ability to produce high value products from poorer
quality crudes. We are tightening up on controllable
expenditures throughout the organization, and we are
taking a hard and comprehensive look at all major pro-
jects, underway or planned, to make sure that we are
justified in going ahead with them at a pace previously
After Mr. Garvin explained the reasons for the discon-
tinuation of Exxon's funding of the Colony Shale Oil
Project, a billion dollar project in Colorado aimed at
producing synthetic fuel out of shale, he made the fol-
lowing remarks:
"A point to keep in mind is that our goal in all these
decisions is not to become less of a force in the world
energy market but to become a more effective one. If
the 100 years of Exxon's history have taught us any-
thing, it is that change is inevitable and that sometimes
it comes more rapidly than we would like. When it does,
we have little choice but to adapt ... to stay broadly on
course but to recognize changing realities and opportu-
nities ."

Cerrejon Coal Project Continues
On the bright side, the Cerrejon Coal Project, one of
the largest projects under construction by Exxon, was
recently given approval to proceed after an Esso Inter
America reappraisal of the project status for Exxon
Corporation. The Cerrejon coal mine, located in
Colombia's northernmost province, La Guajira, is estim-
ated to produce about 15 million tons of coal a year for
23 years. To get a sense of the size of this operation, it
has been said that the Cerrejon coal mining is equiva-
lent to digging a Panama Canal every 18 months.

un di e proyectonan mas grand di Exxon bao construc-
cion, recientemente a haya aprobacion pa continue cu e
proyecto, despues di un evaluacion di e status di e pro-
yecto cu Esso Inter-America a haci pa Exxon Corpora-
