Once again Lago was the lea-
der in safety by winning the
1972 National Safety Council
contest while competing with
nine other major refineries
worldwide. This award for 1972
was presented to Lago's Vice
President, LeRoy Johnston, by
the Head of the Social and La-
bor Affairs Division in Aruba,
Ralph Richardson, during a ce-
remony in Lago's General Office
Building on October 5, 1973 at-
tended by the Press, Radio and
Television, and other members
of Lago Management.
On this occasion, Mr. John-
ston commended and congratu-
lated the employees with this
remarkable achievement. During
1972 Lago personnel had work-
S ,I- E.


ed almost 3,000,000 manhours
with only one disabling injury.
This gave the company a low-
accident frequency rate of .34,
which means that less than one-
half of one disabling injury was
experienced for each 1,000,000
manhours worked.
Mr. Johnston further said that
our employees attained this
splendid record while the major
construction activities of HDS-II
were going on in our refinery
and while they had to handle
about 22 turnarounds on several
of our units involving 210,000
manhours.
He concluded his remarks by
stating that this first place award
indicates that Lago employees
have a high sense of safety res-

ponsibility in performing their
daily jobs.
Also addressing the press re-
presentatives was Lago's Safety
Adviser Higinio Kelly. He outlin-
ed the company's organization
and programs, and stressed that
continuous training and empha-
sis.on safety, the procurement of
new safety equipment and tools
are a few of the many things
the company is doing to keep
the Lago Refinery one of the
safest in the petroleum industry.
In presenting the National
Safety Council's First Place
Award for 1972 to Mr. Johnston,
Mr. Richardson congratulated
Lago and employees on their
outstanding record.
With the 1972 National Safety
Council First Place Award, Lago
now holds eleven first place
awards for the past twenty-six
years. These milestones were
achieved in 1947, 1949, 1954,
1957, 1958, 1961, 1963, 1966,
1968, 1971 and 1972. In the past
twenty-six years, Lago also earn-
ed second place eight times.
As a recognition for the 1972
safety performance, Lago em-
ployees have been presented
with a Parker ballpoint with a
window in which one of four
safety slogans in English or Pa-
piamento appears each time the
pen's button is engaged.

New Crude Gas Compress

Of HOS-II Project Is Put


A recently completed unit of
the HDS-II Project is the Crude
Gas Compressor (G2AR). The
new Gas Compression Facilities
which are located north of the
existing Low Line Gas Compres-
sor (LCAR), was started up on
a total recycle on gas from the
Pipestills and put into operation
on September 17.
The unit, which was construct-
ed by A. G. McKee Company,
has a capacity of 6,820 cubic
ft. of gas per minute. The cen-
trifugal compressor is an Inger-
soll Rand 7450 RPM unit driven
by a 1500 HP General Dynamics


Electric Motor. The discharged
gas will be sent to the new
N2AR unit (Sour Virgin Naphtha
Hydrofiner).
To be well-prepared for the
operation of G2AR, two groups
of Process men each attended
a one-week training program
in the Administration Building
early in July this year. In ad-
dition to theoretical instructions
on three days, the men also
made several trips to the unit
in the field. The classes were
conducted by Process Foreman
Everett A. Beaujon.

Virgin Naphtha Hydrofiner Is First

HDS-II Unit on Stream on the Flats


The first completely new
unit of the HDS-II Project to go
on stream on the reclaimed area
is the Virgin Naphtha Hydro-
finer Unit (N2AR). The unit was
brought up by a combined
startup team formed by a group
of conscientious HDS-II Task
Force. Lago Mechanical, Tech-
nical and Process personnel,
under the direction of Process
Foremen Dick Heywood and
Julio Curiel.

The unit came on stream on
September 21, and has aver-
agely processed approximately
30,000 barrels per day of Naph-
tha from the crude units. The
maximum rate to date was
49.000 B/SD. Naphtha is fed
through the N2AR furnace and
reactor system and the result-
ant "sweetened" naphtha pro-
duct is sent to L2AR, the re-
cently revamped Naphtha Hy-
drofiner Light Ends Unit, for
further processing. The princi-
pal parts of the unit are: Feed
drum and pumps, feed heat ex-
changers and furnace, reactor,
product separation, MEA ab-
sorption and recycle gas com-
pressors.


The N2AR Unit, which is de-
signed to "sweeten" or purify
60,000 barrels of "sour" naph-
tha per day from crudes, involv-
ed other HDS-II units as well
in its startup activities. These
are: the Crude Gas Compressor
(G2AR), which was started up on


September 17, and the HDS-II
Flare facilities which were put
into operation on August 31.
The unit is tied in to the new
DDC-4 computer system at the
Refining Operations Center.

The Lago personnel who are
operating the N2AR unit follow-
ed a training program conduct-
ed by Dick Heywood In the
Administration Building in June.
The three-day training sessions
consisted of both classroom
training and field unit opera-
tion training at the actual site
of the Virgin Naphtha Hydrofi-
ner Unit.

Startup operations of N2AR
on the "flats" involved, in ad-
dition to the HDS-II Project
Task Force, the excellent co-
operation and coordination of
the personnel from five Process
Divisions, namely: Refining Ope-
rations Center and Light Ends
Division, Utilities, HDS-I, Fuels
and Oil Movements.

Work on the N2AR Unit of
HDS-II began in June of 1972. It
was built by prime contractor
Arthur G. McKee Co., with Kirch-
ner, Rivaco, SECA and ANCO
as subcontractors, under the dir-
ection of Larry Van Aman of Es-
so Research, who is assigned to
the HDS-II Project Team.

On these pages we show sev-
eral groups of TOA and Lago
employees in the unit startup.
