Energy Conservation
How to Spend Less for Lighting
Although individual light bulbs
or lamps use less energy than
most small appliances, the total
amount of lighting in a home can
use a sizeable amount of the over-
all energy consumed. Here are
some techniques for cutting down
your lighting costs :
Always turn lights off when
not in use.
Don't use larger bulbs than
Use three-way bulbs instead
of regular bulbs in table lamps.
Turn on high for reading; low for
Use light-color paint or pa-
per on walls to reflect more light
and make it possible to use lower-
wattage bulbs.
Put fluorescent lighting in
kitchen (or other) ceiling fixtures.
A double 40-watt fixture will do the
same lighting job more economi-
cally with less energy than one
150-watt incandescent, two 75-watt
incandescent, or three 60-watt in-
candescent bulbs.
Standard-life light bulbs
conserve more energy than so-
called long-life bulbs and give the
most life for the lighting dollar. To
produce the same amount of light
as a standard 100-watt 750-hour
bulb, a hypothetical 5000-hour
long-life bulb would have to be rat-
ed at 130 watts. Over each long-
life bulb's life span, it would con-
sume an extra 150 kilowatthours.
One 100-watt bulb in a lamp
gives more light and uses less
electricity than two, 60-watt bulbs.
Consider the new low-watt
night lights to replace the regular
7-watt night lights.

This much money goes into the ope-

Pre-Drydock Work o
For the first time in recent years
pre-drydocking work was performed
on a company tug here at Lago. The
job called for a complete overhaul of
the entire inner portion of the "Esso
San Nicolas" before sailing the tug-
boat to Curacao for external mainte-
nance and inspection.
The 3000-H.P., 105-ft. long vessel,
identical to the "Esso Oranjestad",
had been out of service for three
weeks. During the present period of
low harbor activity, the "Esso Oran-
jestad" is able to handle the harbor
with the assistance of the Venezuelan
tug "Cardon" on charter to Lago.
Although previously other types of
inspection and repairs had taken
place in the "Esso San Nicolas" en-
gine room, including a clutch overhaul
in record time, the major maintenance
work involved taking apart the main
engine and its related equipment. This
job was possible through the expe-
rience obtained by Mario Agunbero,
Leonardo Hodge and Sylvan Paul
early this year during the drydocking
of the "Esso Oranjestad" at the Cu-
racao Drydock Company. Under their
guidance, the Mechanical personnel
were able to tackle the maintenance
work efficiently and precisely to re-
condition the engine. Very important
also was the availability of the nu-
merous spare parts ordered in ad-
The pre-drydock job carefully work-
ed out by Mechanical Planner George

n "Esso San Nicolas"
Lambrinos of Mechanical Shops &
Facilities Division using the Critical
Path Method, was carried out by a
team of seventeen Mechanical emplo-
yees, working two shifts, under super-
vision of Machinist Foreman Janchi
Werleman. The job was coordinated
and executed under supervision of Ru-
fo De Mey of the Planning & Control
Section. Although the machinists had
the bulk of the job, other shop work-
ers, such as cleanoutmen, instru-
ment and electric shop personnel,
were also very much involved. Elec-
tricians, for instance, completely re-
conditioned all electric motors and
installations, and inspected and clean-
ed the switchboard.
Under the watchful eyes of the cap-
tain on duty, who was responsible for
the work and safety of the tugboat, the
M&C men systematically overhauled
the main engine. Engine power packs
were removed and sent to the Main
Shop for cleaning and repairs for fu-
ture use, while new ones were instal-
led to save time. Other work included
opening up and inspecting pumps,
bearings, aftercoolers, the clutch, salt-
water filters, the steering system, and
other machinery in the tug innards.
Wherever possible, repairs and repla-
cements were made on the spot. Most
equipment parts, however, required
more extensive cleaning and repairs
at the Mechanical Shop where Rufo
De Mey supervised the activities.
Always on hand was a tug engineer

Brand-new power packs (cylinders containing

to ensure the proper and smooth

handling of the marine equipment.
Having overall responsibility of the
pre-drydock activities was Mario
Agunbero, Supervisor Terminal Ope-
rations in the Oil Movements Division.
The maintenance work performed
by Lago employees not only resulted
in cutting down labor costs, but serv-
ed as an excellent experience for all
involved in handling all sorts of refi-
nery and marine equipment, thus in-
creasing their job efficiency and flexi-
On April 14, the "Esso San Nicolas"
went on drydock in Curacao, where
all underwater jobs and other above
water level work, which could not be
handled here at Lago, are presently
being done. When the tugboat returns
to "home base" late April, her main
engine will be "fit for duty" for an-
other 20,000 hours or about five years.
The tugboat will be on regular harbor
duty until the next scheduled drydock-
ing time again in about 24 months.

boratory at Baton Rouge. He is pre-
sently a visiting professor at L S U
where he is teaching a course on Pe-
troleum Refining Technology, which
he also taught at Lago in 1973.
During the four-day convention,
there were a total of 91 sessions with
over 450 speakers presenting papers
on a variety of subjects which includ-
ed various industrial processing tech-
niques, air pollution problems, and
energy conservation. Most of the
speakers were university and indus-
trial researchers from the U.S.A. and
Canada, while a few, like Olivier, were
fairly recent M.S. graduates.
The purpose of the AIChE meeting
is for its members to interchange in-
formation and ideas on various types
of research work being conducted at
universities and different industrial la-
boratories. Along with the sessions
at which authors presented their re-
search papers there was a continuing
education program consisting of forty
courses and seminars. At.the same
time, AIChE members had the oppor-
tunity to visit a Petrochemical and Re-
fining Exposition where a large varie-
ty of industrial equipment and machi-
nery were exhibited.
Olivier found the convention, the
first he has attended, very rewarding.
After his own presentation, he attend-
ed many different sessions on job-re-
lated subjects, energy conservation
and other new technical develop-

y maquinaria a ser exhibi.
Olivier a haya cu e convention aki,
cual tabata e promer cu el a atende,

pencil, the escaping steam would cost
FIs. 13,300 in the same period.
These leaks apparently insigni-
ficant in themselves are multiplied
into thousands of guilders by the vo-
lume of Lago's operations.
Electricity is not generally consi-
dered to be subject to leakage, but
unnecessary use of electric lights re-
presents a loss both in the electric
power consumed and in the cost of
the bulbs burned out. The savings
gained by turning off an unused light
is small, but the effort required to flip.
a switch is even smaller.
The employee who spots leaks, but
does nothing about them is the fellow
who is helping Lago increase its utili-
ty bill towards FIs. 50,000,000.
Helping him are employees who see
fresh water or steam or hear com-
pressed air escaping and ignore
them; who see electric lights burning
needlessly and don't turn them off;
see electric-powered machines run-
ning unused have the authority to
turn them off or to report them and
The type of employee helping Lago
reduce its utility bill is the fellow who
spots a leak and says to his foreman,
"There is a break in a steam line over
by the No. 5 Pipestills" or "Air is es-
caping from a line behind No. 7. Vis-
breaker Unit". He is also the fellow
who sees electricity being wasted and
stops it.

Give Blood, It May
Blood for patients who are hospita-
lized can usually be obtained from re-
latives and friends when there is suf-
ficient time to plan a transfusion. How-
ever, the situation changes when there
is an emergency and there is no time
to obtain and to check donor's blood
to match the patient's. Therefore,
the San Pedro Hospital must keep an
adequate supply of blood on hand in
cases of emergency.
To keep such a blood bank up to
strength more blood donors are need-
ed all the time. Professional blood
donors who give blood periodically
about every six months, maintain the
blood bank supplied. Donors give
blood free of charge on a voluntary

The Company's Energy Conserva-
tion, Oil Loss & Environmental Con-
trol Committee needs the cooperation
of all employees in the reduction of
utility losses and other waste. In se-
veral areas already considerable suc-
cess has been experienced by repair-
ing leaks reported by employees.

Save Your Own Life...
The quantity of blood taken each
time is small enough so there are no
ill effects to the donor. Following the
giving of blood, only a relatively short
period of rest is needed before the
donor can continue with his normal
Donated blood is stored in special
plastic bags at low temperatures in
the blood bank a special refrigera-
tor at the hospital. Because emer-
gency cases and cases of prolonged
illness require large quantities of
these stocks of blood for transfusion,
they must be constantly replenished.
Any resident of Aruba, man or wo-
man between 18 and 65 years of age,
may serve as a donor. The require-
ments are: good physical health and
a blood test to determine what blood
type one has. There are four major
blood groups; A, B, AB and 0, and
the rhesus group.
The fact that individuals have dif-
ferent blood groups is very important
from the standpoint of transfusion, be-
cause a patient can only be given
blood from a properly group compat-
ible donor.
Lago employees and their wives,
who wish to become donors, can
sign up after consulting the Company
doctor on their state of health and
their blood type. With this informa-
tion they can contact Dr. R. J. W. de
Keizer of the San Pedro Hospital, or
Sister Theresina (tel. 2200-57), charg-
ed with the Hospital Blood Transfu-
sion Service, who will make an ap-
pointment for the potential donor to
report to the Government Laborato-
ries. After the tests are made, the in-
dividual's pertinent data are sent to
the hospital where they are kept on
