The first ship to use the new pier was the ESSO

A van Hofwegen of the Government Pilot service had the
honor of putting the first vessel alongside the new pier as
he- brought the ESSO WORCESTER into the south berth
just before noon on December 10th less than three hours
after the pier had been turned over to Lago by the

This ship was named after the home town of the late
Robert L Hague who headed Jerseys marine operations

for many years
The construction of the pier was done by the Netherlands
Harbor Works Co It is designed to service two 26000 ton
supertankers at the same time and is closely allied with the
completion of the Ule Amuay pipeline Formerly all crude
was brought from Lake Maracaibo by shallow draft lake
tankers Now transport of oil from Amuay to Aruba by
T 2s and supertankers in addition to the Lake Fleet is

practical and economical
