Expanded Refining Control Center

Is More Spacious, Better Equipped

The process personnel of
Fuels, Light Hydrocarbons and
HDS divisions, the Instrument-
men, the computer operator,
MCS and General Electric per-
sonnel now have more space
and equipment at their disposal
in the newly expanded Refining
Control Center. From a two-
story building with just 8,000
square feet of space, the new
building now measures 20,000
square feet. Ground work on
the two-story addition began in
March, 1972.
The second floor, where most
of the process control activities
are centered, will eventually
house the operating panels for
the entire Lago operating units
which consist of: Fuels Division
units, Light Hydrocarbons Divi-
sion units and HDS units
I --

approximately 8.000 conductors
enter, and four new offices for
process foremen.
The original ground floor area
contains process computers 1,
2 and 3 and two supervisory
computers. All cables are routed
below the raised floor in the
computer and control rooms
The building is equipped with
a new fire/smoke detection and
alarm system that will be con-
nected directly to the Fire Head-
quarters. Also provided are fire
extinguishers filled with Halon
chemical especially suitable to
combat electrical fires because
it is non-toxic and non-corrosive.
For additional safety of the per-
sonnel, the building is provided
with two exit doors and one es-
cape ladder on the second floor,
and an emergency lighting sys-

On the north side, the second
floor also has three new offices
for the Process and Shift Fore-
men, a new lunchroom and
locker area with toilet facilities
and, on the south side, a new
radio room and an instrument
maintenance room.
On the ground floor addition,
nearly half of the space is tak-
en up by the new aircondition-
ing equipment for the whole
building. This equipment includ-
es three water-cooled refriger-
ation units of 90 tons capacity
each (compared with the pre-
vious air-cooled 48-ton unit) as
well as new fans and air filter-
ing equipment. The new ground
floor section further includes
the powet distribution system
area, the HDS computer room
which contains the new DDC-4
computer, a cable room where

Martines Leo Spends Spare Time

Building Own 26
The long expected day came
for Martines Leo that Saturday
morning of June 30 when his 26-
foot yacht "Angelique" (NA317)
with trailer was hooked on to a
jeep for launching. It was about
a year ago since Martines had
!aid the keel for his flare-bow
type crown-cruiser which he
started to construct close to his
yard at Savaneta 160-A from a
complete hull kit.
Since then he has been as-
sembling, planking, nailing, bolt-
ing and fiberglassing to finish
the hull and cabin. In this work
he was assisted by his friends
Ro Paskel of Comptroller's, Hu-
go Garcia of Mechanical-Pipe
Section, Jerry Henriquez, and
other helpers, including his wife
Angelica who admitted she more
than once hit her finger instead
of the nails. She was also the
first to help set up the frame-
Although this was the first
time Martines ever attempted to
build a boat, he managed to
pick up this type of work fast
which is quite different from his
job of Process Foreman at La-
go's HDS units. Most of the
work involved carpenter skills

Plants, flower beds, and palm

to line up the frame properly,
screw on the 3/8" marine ply-
wood planking and build the ca-
bin. But some of the tedious
work included bending the flare
bow, fiberglassing the hull, pan-
eling the cabin, installing the
kitchen sink, stove, toilet faci-
lities, seats and sleeping acom-
modation for four. Then came
the job of installing the two
155 HP Chrysler Marine gasoline
engines with outdrives, instru-
ment panel and controls with
electrical and lighting systems.
The "Angelique" is also equip-
ped with a two-way, 4-channel
radio to communicate with the
Oranjestad Harbor station.
The launching ceremony took
place at Savaneta where the
Leo family, crew and helpers
boarded the yacht for a trial run
A member of the Bucuti Yacht
Club, Martines later that day
took his yacht to its permanent
base at the pier of the club
near the old airport terminal.
Though he will use his boat
mostly for trolling around the
island, Martines and family plan
to participate in the next fishing
tournament in Punto Fijo, Ve-
nezuela, in November this year,
