Continued efforts in maintaining

a clean air and sea environ-

fuel crisis it has been deemed
necessary to minimize the con-
sumption of fuel products. At
Lago, this means reducing the

Last Four Units of HDS-11 Project

On Reclaimed Land Now in Service

The No. 3 Sulfur Plant (S3AR),
the Heavy Vacuum Gasoil Gofin-
er (D3AR) the MEA Regeneration
Unit (M3AR), and the Recycle
;Wash Stripper (SWAR-II) were
commissioned during February
as the last units on the "flats" or
r-reclaimed area that form part
of the HDS-II Project.
SThe No. 3 Sulfur Plant, which
n-went on stream on February 14,

150 long tons per day and is es-
sentially a duplicate of the exist-
-ing SIAR and S2AR units. The
startup activities were under the

being produced. The unit, which
has a design capacity of 49,000
barrels a day, is essentially
identical to the existing D2AR
unit. Precommissioning and
startup were under the direction
of Process Foremen Dick Hey-
wood and Julio Curiel, with the
assistance of Process and Me-
chanical personnel.

Know-How, Teamwork, Are Major Factors in HDS Instrumentation Project

Lago's HDS-II Instrumentation
Group, under the supervision
of George M. Stankiewicz, was
greatly responsible for the suc-
cessful startup for the new
HDS-II units. This group, which
at times included up to 14 Me-
chanics, three Supervisors and
three Engineers, was involved in
checking out and commission-
ing the necessary automatic
control systems both in the field
and in the new wing of the Re-
fining Operations Center. (ROC).
Armed with experience, know-
how and training, and in an ex-
ceptional display of teamwork
and coordination, the group of
technicians began connecting
the first HDS-II unit, the N2-
Naphtha Hydrofiner, to the new
DDC-4 computer system in
March last year. The last three
units, the Heavy Vacuum Gas-
oil Hydrofiner (D3AR), the MEA
Regeneration Unit 3 (M3AR),
and the Recycle Water Stripper
(SWAR-II), were. commissioned
on February 24, 1974. Each unit
on the new control system using
the new DDC-4 computer is ful-
ly backed up by a duplicate ana-
log system, with all activities
controlled from the panels in
the ROC.
Since the first of this month,
these units were turned over to
Process while operating under
continuous and automatic com-
puter control.
Along with the new HDS-II in-
strumentation project, the In-
strumentmen were also involv-
ed in the consolidation of all 18
HDS-I units into the new HDS
system now concentrated in
ROC's new wing. This involved
the physical transfer of the
HDS-I control instruments to
new control panels in the new
wing and transferring HDS-I
control from the DDC-3 compu-
ter to the new DDC-4 computer.
This consolidation and transfer
of instruments and controls was
started in August, 1973 and will
be completed by April 15. Al-
though the majority of unit trans-
fers were made while the units
were down for turnaround, a
number of transfers were imple-
mented while the units were on-
A new Digital Temperature In-
dicating system has also been
added and integrated with the
existing refinery and HDS-I
systems. The complexity of the

work was further increased by
the integration of new instru-
ment power supply system with
the existing power system and
by installation of more radio
communication facilities. In to-
tal, about 3000 control instru-
ments were installed by the I,1-
strumentmen on the ROC pa-
nels. This work in the ROC
was under supervision of Felix
Bikker, assisted by W. J. Diaz.

Field work included the in-
stallation of thousands of miles
of field cables to numerous
field instruments on the units.
The instrumentmen worked fre-
quently under strenuous condi-
tions, inspecting and checking
some 5200 new field instruments
at the HDS-II units to make sure
that they are installed in accord-
ance with Esso design specifi-
cations and Lago standards.
They were responsible for the
proper commissioning of all in-
strumentation, with O. Franken
supervising the field work.
The Shop Instrumentmen, un-
der J. B. Croeze, were respons-
ible for calibrating all new trans-
mitters and control valves. This
procedure produced much bet-
ter results as compared with the
HDS-I project when an instru-
ment sub-contractor performed
field calibration.
Telemetering and oil move-
ment systems were extended by
adding 15 new storage tanks, se-
veral new pumps and remote
valves. This work was perform-
ed under direction of W. Palm
and Frank Bardouille.
The new control systems also
include some 20 automatic ana-
lyzers for continuous monitoring
of the chemical composition of
the critical process streams.
New, sophisticated shutdown
systems provide improved pro-
tection for the process units and
greatly assist operating person-
nel in emergencies. Also, addi-
tional area monitors continuous-
ly survey the total HDS complex
and alert Process personnel for
other safety hazards (high H2S
concentration, etc.).
With most of the instrument-
ation work completed, the in-
strument group may look back
with pride and satisfaction to
their contribution to the suc-
cessfull startup of the HDS-II
facilities and to the growth of
the Lago Refinery.

One of the sport activities
which is steadily increasing in
popularity in Aruba is English-
style horseback riding. This was
clearly demonstrated on Sunday,
March 10, when sixty-eight mem-
bers of the Sociedad Hipica
Aruba (Aruba Riding Society)
turned up at the Manege at Ma-
huma to take a series of tests
in horsemanship. Of the group,
which consisted of youngsters
from age 8 up to adults, 64 rid-
ers qualified for the A, B, or C.
exams. The main attraction of
the day was a horse show -
also called a "carrousel" -
which was presented in the late

the horse responds instantly to

Giving its final approval of
the tests was a jury consisting
of Mrs. L. M. Haverbeke, Mrs. D.
Timmers, Mrs. J. van Strien,
Mrs. M. Warren, Mrs. S. Mars,
Mrs. M. Marques and Mr. C.

The "Sociedad Hipica Aruba"
was founded as a private club
back in 1967 by the late Rude-
loff Beaujon (a former Lago em-
ployee) and Nick Ecury, pre-
sently a Zone Supervisor in the
Mechanical Department, with a
group of close friends as share-
holders. Over the years the in-
terest in horseback riding grew
to such proportions that the
club became a school for those
who wanted to learn the sport.
Nowadays, membership numbers
about 120 people, including
some 80 youths from six to six-
teen years of age. The Man-
&ge at Mahuma has twenty-four
stables and presently boards
twenty-one horses, mostly Co-
lombian-bred, of which six are
privately owned. The chief pro-
moter of the Society is Donald
R. Oduber of Lago's Comptrol-
ler's Department.

Riding lessons, given daily to
beginners, intermediate and ad-
vanced groups, also include
grooming. Horses are also rent-
ed out to island residents and
visitors based on the indivi-
dual's riding ability.

The Board of the Sociedad
Hipica Aruba is formed by G.
van den Bosch, Chairman; J.
van de Horn, Vice-Chairman/
Treasurer ; D. R. Oduber, Admi-
nistrator/Secretary and E. Stra-
cke, Equipment Handling & Fa-
