Cleanout until May, 1942, when he
became a Process Helper "C" in
Operating-Pressure Stills. He prog-

forty-two months after he performed a brief blessing ceremony for the
school which was then housed in a wooden shed. Bishop Holterman
said the school was but one of many examples of the improvements,
social provisions and cultural institutions which have grown steadily
under the cooperation of the Aruban people. "Religious development is
the leaven of scientific development," he said, demonstrated by this
blessing "that God has a place in this school." Education Minister E.
O. Petronia said the rapid growth of the HBS made it possible for
Aruban youngsters to develop themselves "for a longer period on their
own soil and in their own family circles." Although the project is less
conspicuous, he said, "this HBS is one of the most important Aruban
projects." The teachers' training program, started at the school in
1960, is one of the latest developments in island education, it was not-
ed. Education Inspector T. Sprockel urged that the Dutch Mammoth
Education Act be applied in the Netherlands Antilles as soon as pos-
sible, since the law offers many possibilities for Aruba to adapt second-
ary education to its own requirements.

cion di e pueblo Arubano. "Desaroyo religioso ta e zuurdeeg di desar-
oyo scientifico" el a bisa, y ta demonstrA door di e bendicion aki "cu

Harbor Tugs Overhauled

Time For Drydoek r

Lago's two tugboats have just had their drydocking. The Esso
Oranjestad took first turn inside the maze of scaffolding and -
workmen, who checked, chipped, repainted, welded, took apart
and put back together again most of the innards of the 105-foot-
long vessel. Two weeks later the Esso San Nicholas replaced her
in drydock, and was scheduled to be back in service this past week.
Both tugs go into drydock every eighteen months. The Aruba
Government tug, Arikok, filled in when needed to assist in berth-
ing incoming ships at San Nicolas Harbor.
Both the Esso Oranjestad and Esso San Nicolas weight 252 gross
tons or 108 net tons. Their beams are twenty-seven feet each.
Fourteen feet deep, each draws twelve feet, eight-ann-one-fourth
/ inches of water. -
Major part of the maintenance was rebuilding each tug's engine.
Each has a 1600-horsepower, sixteen-cylinder diesel. Each piston,
eight inches in diameter and about fifteen inches high, develops
100 horsepower.
Propellor shafts on the two vessels were taken out and checked
for wear. Also inspected were propellor, rudder and rudder shaft .. 4
and engine bushings. The tugs got a complete paint job.
Workers on the Esso San Nicolas had to lift one generator and
the main motor to pull its rotor, last done four years ago.
Accompanying photographs show details of the bow fender
arrangements. The tugs formerly depended on rubber bumpers,
held in place by a chain secured to each bumper end. The new prow
has each rubber fender supported by projecting planes, and reinm-
forced behind.
The Esso Oranjestad was delivered to Lago January 14, 1955;
the Esso San Nicolas, Feb. 6, 1956. Each represents an investment
of one-half million dollars.
Hulls of the two tugs were termed in excellent condition during
their inspections. Installation of metal anodes onto the hulls was
responsible for the protection of the steel against salt water cor-
Until the two new tugs were obtained, Lago's harbor equipment
had been painted to protect the hull at each drydocking. Use of
the cathodicc protection" is more thorough and reliable. Marine
Department officials also note it is more economical.
Aluminum anodes were attached to their hulls in 1957 Twenty-
one of the thirty-seven-pound anodes in all were attached to each
tug, ten on each side of the vessel and half an anode on each side
of the rudder. Use of the anodes also represents a considerable

No. 5 Combination Unit Sh

New Base Is Installed in Sections

While Cleaning, Repairs Take Place
No 5 Combination Unit has a new concrete foundation and support
structure The unit also had its cracked fireproofing repaired and
received its scheduled cleaning.
The work was performed during a five-day shutdown. The new con-
crete foundation, complete with anchor bolts, was poured within the
old tower support structure. Eighteen cubic yards of concrete were
A small portion of the structure was cut away, and seven columns
put up between the bubble tower skirt ring and the new foundation.
Each column is a five-foot length of old five-inch furnace tubing.
A quarter of the old support structure was then removed. Curved
plates were installed to take the load it normally held. The process
was repeated on the opposite quadrant. Then the other half of the old
support was ripped out aan the remaining plates forming the new
support were welded into place
A two-inch layer of concrete mixture was sprayed inside and out.
The cleaning, last performed in June, 1962, involved cleaning the fur-
naces, soaking drums, eveporator and tower and some of the exchanges.
Seventeen of the thirty-six trays on the No 5 Crude Tower were
pulled and converted from jet to sieve trays. The project took about
11,000 man hours. A similar project is under way on No. 6 Combination
Unit, where the base has already been poured.

Synthetic Crude Production Proposed

Under $356 Million Canadian Project
Plans for a commercial complex which would cost an estimated
$356,000,000 and would produce 100,000 barrels a day of synthetic
crude from the Athabasca tar sands in Canada's Alberta Province by
1970, were outlined in an application filed with the Alberta Oil and Gas
Conservation Board by Cities Service Athabasca, Inc., on its own behalf

and for its associates in the plan -
Imperial Oil Ltd., Richfield Oil Corp-
oration, and Royalite Oil Company,
Limited. The application requests ap-
proval to design, construct and oper-
ate mining and processing facilities
in the Mildred Lake area of the
Athabasca tar sands, as well as a
295-mile pipeline to Edmonton.
The submission reviews the inten-
sive development work carried out
by the applicants during the last
three and one-half years, including
the pilot plant operations at Mildred
Lake which resulted in selection of
the process they believe will be sur-
cussful on a commercial basis.
A definitive estimate for the pro-
ject is scheduled to be completed in
1964. Subject to the results of their
economic evaluation of the project
and projected market conditions then
prevailing, the applicants plan to
start construction of the project as
soon as possible after completion of
the final engineering in 1965.
Production is scheduled to begin in
1969. Full production of 100,000 bar-
rels a day would be reached by 1970.
In a detailed forecast of the sup-
ply-demand situation for the next
several years, the applicants suggest
the proposed tar sands production by
1970 will come at just about the
time "Alberta's potential begins to
decline." The study forecasts "a ser-
ious deficiency by the mid-1970's"
The province's ability to supply the
demand at that time will require ad-
ditional annual increments of about
100,000 barrels per day for at least
five years.
The applicants emphasize the need
to achieve low unit cost production
in any tar sands operation. One sig-
nificant factor is volume of produc-
tion. They conclude, therefore, that
they "cannot sufficiently lower the
costs of mining, conveying, process-
ing and pipelining at this time unless
production approached 100,000 bar-
rels a day."
First step in the complicated re-
covery project is removal of over-
burden by dragline. This overburden
would be slurried and pumped to
disposal. The exposed sands then
would be mined. Two giant bucket-
wheel excavators capable of working
a 200-foot face will be used to ex-
cavate the tar sands. Two parallel
conveyors then will carry the tar
sands to the extraction plant. Each
conveyor has an operating capacity
of 13,000 tons per hour.
The extraction step is carried out
by the "dense phase" process devel-
oped by the applicants. This is a
two-stage process which they have
found to be superior in both oper-

Field Is Opened at Raguba;

Gas Oil Separator Plant

In Wastelands of Libya
Esso Sirte, Inc, affiliate of Stan-
dard Oil Company (New Jersey), as
operator has begun production of oil
from the Raguba field situated 120
miles southwest of Esso's terminal
at Marsa el Brega.
The field is in Concession 20 which
is held jointly by Esso Sirte, Inc.,
Libyan American Oil Company and
W. R. Grace & Co. The Raguba field
was discovered in January, 1961.
Since then thirty-one additional wells
have been drilled. Daily production
from Raguba is expected to average
about 45,000 barrels for the remain-
der of 1963.
At the Raguba field a gas oil
separation plant has just been com-
pleted. From this plant the oil flows
through a recently constructed twen-
ty-inch pipeline which connects sixty-
six miles from the Mediterranean
Coast with the main thirty-inch pipe-
line from Zelten to Marsa el Brega.
Esso Sirte has agreed to purchase
the production owned by W. R. Grace
& Co., and Libyan American Oil.

ability and bitumen recovery to the
straight hot-water process developed
by the Alberta Research Council. The
tar sand is mixed at 180 degrees
temperature with steam and fresh
water in an 18-foot diameter by 46-
foot long rotating tumbler. Slurry
recovered from this step is then con-
tacted with hot water and the bulk
of this bitumen is separated as froth.
This process also separates the sand
which is mixed with water and pump-
ed to disposal. Another hot water
contact is made for additional bitu-
men recovery.
Principal products which result
are naphtha and gas-oils. These must
be treated for the reduction of sul-
phur and nitrogen contents before an
acceptable synthetic crude can be
produced. Elaborate plans are includ-
ed for final disposal of waste.
The plan also calls for generating
facilities to furnish power and steam
for the plant and for a proposed
townsite near Mildred Lake. Airport
facilities would be constructed. An
all-weather road with a bridge over
the Athabasca River will also be re-
quired between McMurray and the
The new townsite would be plan-
ned and administered by the appro-
priate provincial government agen-
cies, according to the applicants'
submission. The applicants indicate
they would make financial aid avail-
able, if required, in the early stages.
They estimate the average annual
manpower requirements over the
construction period would range from
1,000 to 4,000 men for the project.
Annual field payrolls would vary
from $7 million to $25 million.
Manpower requirements for oper-
ating and maintaining the plant,
power plant and pipeline would num-
ber 1,700 with an annual payroll of
about $14 million.
The entire operations as outlined
are planned primarily on one lease
of 49,788 acres held by the appli-
cants. In addition, they hold another
279,796 acres in areas of the Atha-
basca oil sands considered suitable
for surface mining operation. The
quantity of bitumen in place on the
lease planned for working is esti-
mated at 1.4 billion barrels.

New Lubricant Developed

Especially for Jet Motors
A new synthetic jet lubricant that
can withstand temperatures 100 de-
grees hotter than oils now in use has
been developed by Esso Research
and Engineering Company. John R.
Tuttle, in charge of development
work on the product, estimated that
commercial and military jet planes
consume more than two million gal-
lons of synthetic lubricants like these
Temperature-stable oils are essen-
tial for jets Planes may be on the
ground in forty-degree-below-zero
Arctic regions. After takeoff, the
temperature inside the engines soars
to 500 degrees F. Since the new lub-
ricant is more stable and lays down
less deposits, the number of expen-
sive engine overhauls will be reduced.
