GOB Will Sport Colorful

Outside Panels; Facelift

Completion Set for August
Refurbishing of the twenty-one-
year old General Office Building, a
project some two years in the works,
is expected to be completed by the
end of August The building's new
exterior will consist of gold and blue
paneling and a fresh coat of white
paint. The building's interior will be
completely painted as well.
Project engineer is W. J. van den
Heuvel, who developed and designed
the changes to the structure
The re-styling of the exterior be-
came necessary with the breaking
up, over a period of years, of the
glass blocks which lined the outside
of the GOB. Damage to the blocks
and the maintenance required on the
roof to prevent leakage spurred the
project Work on the roof was done
by contractors in 1962. The Lago
Mechanical Department is handling
all other repairs. Some forty men
are involved in the project.
The architectural insulating pan-
els, similar to the ones on the Ad-
ministration Building, are a product
of Belgium.
The replacement of the glass
blocks presented several problems.
First, there was the question of what
to put in their place. Second was the
task of exterior and interior design.
Before the Belgium Pan-O-Roc was
agreed upon, contacts for samples,
catalogs and specifications were
made with fifteen different com-
As opposed to the Administration
Building, which was constructed on
a three-foot module, and where the
walls can be moved three feet in
either direction, the walls in the
GOB are a permanent type, based
on a fifteen-foot module. Changes in
office size throughout the years,
therefore, presented a problem in de-
signing the installation of the blocks.
To make the building presentable
from the outside, the fifteen-foot
structure was adhered to, and the
building was divided into equal fra-
mes for the installation of the panels.
What this means, according to Mr.
van den Heuvel, is that not all the
windows in the offices will be in the
center as seen from the inside, but
the exterior will be uniform.
One innovation of the refurbishmg
is the installation of "Cool Vent,"
windows with a wire mesh that re-
flects heat and glare.
The bulk of the work on the
building has been proceeding on the
four to twelve shift.

Bahlingen Earns FIs. 3270 CYI Award

Receiving and Shipping employee H. Bahlingen is the winner of the

It All Depends

Competition is a great challenge. Its existence is significant, vitally
so, to employees of an industry whose framework of operation is guid-
ed by competition. In the employee's society, the forces of competition
have brought material things within immediate reach in bountiful pro-
portions. This gives the employee first-hand knowledge of both sides.
He works for a company striving to remain competitive, and he
lives in a community which enjoys the benefits of competition. Quickly
the picture becomes a matter of which way it is looked at.
Hear what W. R. Stott, director of Standard Oil Company (New
Jersey), said recently at the opening of a new Jersey refinery in
Europe. "Operating under conditions of free enterprise, oil companies
have found most of the oil which has powered our civilization for the
past three-quarters of a century. They have found and developed to-
day's multiple sources of supply vast reserves on every continent
sufficient to meet man's needs for many years.
"Because there are many companies acting independently to obtain
a share of the market, each is forced to achieve the most rigorous
efficiencies in all stages of operations in order to win and keep cus-
tomers. As long as this principle of competition based on multiple
sources of initiative prevails, society will be well served.
"It is the spirit of free enterprise that spurs today's continuing
search for new oil and gas reserves on a worldwide scale, and which
is leading to numerous discoveries."
The importance of Mr. Stott's thoughts is that publicly a leading
businessman has declared that society will be served well as long as
competition prevails. By society he means everyone -refinery wor-
ker, shop clerk, farmer, fisherman, sailor, housewife, schoolchild.
The members of society will be able to pick and choose exactly what
he or she wants according to many needs or desires, but mostly by
price. The best product for the best price is exactly what everyone
wants; what everyone seeks. Each company must scramble hard to
provide their product at the most attractive price, because if the pro-
duct is not sold, for some reason, the company will cease to exist.
The consumer will decide. If he doesn't buy your product, he is tel-
ling you your costs are too high or your product is inferior.

Tur Ta Depende

Competencia ta un gran desafio. Su e::istencia ta significant y
vitalmente significant pa empleadonan di un industrial cual su sistema
di operation ta guia door di competencia. Den sociedad di e empleado,
e forzanan di competencia a trece cosnan material dentro su alcance
inmediato den cantidadnan abundante. Esaki ta duna e empleado co-
nocemento di primer mano tocante ambos banda di competencia.
El ta traha pa un compania cu ta lucha pa keda competitor y el ta
biba den un comunidad cu ta goza e beneficionan di competencia.
Rapidamente, e vista ta bira un asunto di cual banda bo ta mire'le.
Tende loke W. R. Stott, un director di Standard Oil Company (New
Jersey) a bisa recientemente na inauguracion di un refineria nobo di
Jersey na Europa. "Operando bao condicionnan di empresa libre, com-
panianan petrolero a descubri mayoria di e petroleo cual a duna energia
na nos civilizacion pa e ultimo tres-cuarto :',;lo. Nan a descubri y
desaroyk e fuentenan multiple di petroleo di r.wendia reservanan
grand ariba tur continent cu ta suficiente pa satisface necesidadnan
di hende pa hopi anjas.
"Pasobra tin hopi compania cu ta traha independientemente pa ob-
tene un parti di e mercado, cada uno ta ser forzA pa logra eficiencianan
de lo mas rigoroso den tur fase di operacionnan pa por gana y man-
tene clientenan. Pa tanto tempo cu e principio aki di competencia basa
ariba multiple fuentenan di iniciativo ta prevalece, e sociedad lo ta
bon sirbi.
"Ta e espirito di empresa liber cu ta stimula e busqueda continue
di awendia pa reserves nobo di petroleo y gas ariba un escala mundial,
y cual ta trece numeroso descubrimento."
E importancia di Sr. Stott su pensamentonan ta cu publicamente un
negociante principal a declare cu sociedad lo ser bon sirbi pa tanto cu
tin competencia. Cu sociedad el kier meen tur hende trahador den
refineria, clerk den shop, un cunukero, piscador, nabegante, ama di
cas, y much di school.
E miembronan di sociedad lo por piki y escoge exactamente loke
nan mester segun nan varies necesidadnan of deseonan, pero mayoria
dependiendo di e prijs. E mehor product pa e mehor prijs ta exacta-
mente loke tur hende kier y loke tur hende ta busca. Cada compania
master lucha duro pa ofrece nan product na e prijs de lo mas atrac-
tivo, pasobra si e product no ser bendi, e compania lo stop di existi.
E client lo decidi. Si e no cumpra bo product, el kier bisa bo cu bo
costonan ta much halto of cu bo product ta inferior.

Tough Lago 'Scouts'

Will Have Opportunity

To Do Many 'Good Deeds'
Eight Scouts are expected to join
Lago's automotive equipment fleet
later this month. Six Scouts have
been assigned to the Gasoline, Trans-
fer and Crude Field Pumphouses;
two will go to the Esso Club and the
Garage spare pickup pool
Scout is the trade name of an In-
ternational four-cylinder pickup truck
purchased recently to replace quar-
ter-ton pickups in rigorous service.
Unlike its two-legged counterpart,
the four-wheeled Scout will be called
upon to do more than one "good
deed" daily. The Scouts assigned to
the Gasoline, Transfer and Crude
Field Pumphouses, for instance, will
transport gaugers throughout the
vast tank farm area They will also
transport samples of products to the
pumphouses. These spry Scouts will
certainly have to "Be Prepared," for
they will be in twenty-four hour con-
tinuous service.
The capacity of the Scout is more

than just a rucksack.
an 800-pound load or
the pickup body.

It can handle
four l ders in

The Scout, normally sporting two-
tone colors, will have to don a gray
uniform upon joining the Lago troop.

Instrumentation Advances

Development Of Analyzers Increases

High Yields from High Valued Products
In the years since 1957, the petroleum industry, worldwide, has
found itself in a competitive arena in which survival of the fittest,
measured by efficiency, has been the most persuasive guiding force.
Economic circumstances since then have continually brought into
forus the need for higher yields of higher valued products.

The end point or final boiling
point analyze s measure the tempe-
ature at which all the material has
boiled away. This is accomplished by
boiling the sample in an electric
heater which is essentially a small
still. Instead of using crude or some i
other type feed, it uses the product
to be tested By controlling the pres-
sil e in this small tower, the relative
amount of sample distilled overhead
and sample taken ftom the bottom
of the pot is also controlled This
control of pressure, overheads, and
bottoms can be correlated to arrive
at a final boiling point This tempe-
'atulie is converted to an air pres-
sure signal to the control panel.

Most Advanced Instruments
The flash point analyzers, perhaps
the most advanced instruments in-
stalled at Lago, can complete an
analysis cycle from one to six min-
utes. These analyzers endeavor to
determine the temperature to which
product must be heated in order to
give off enough vapois to form a
flammable mixture with air when
In this case, the sample is pump-I
ed through a refiigeratlon system
and then into a small, electrically
heated cup containing a spark gap.
Here, air is bubbled through the
sample. When the temperature of the
oil has been raised enough to release
the sufficient vapors that support
combustion with air, the spark ig-
nites it. Temperature of oil at this
time is recorded as the flash point
Kerosene specifications, for example,
require that it must not flash at tem-
peratures below 112 degrees Fahren-
Beyond maintaining a continuous
check on qualities of products, and
enabling greater yields of higher
valued products, instrumentation has
also provided positive realizations
and practical benefits. The gasoline

Industrial Applications
How do you solve an unusual pro-
blem when conventional methods
fall? Sometimes the best solution
can be as unusual as the problem
itself. Such a problem was encoun-
tered with the two Watkins recir-
culators at the Lago Commissary.
The solution, developed by engineer
M. G. Murray, was, at least for
Lago, somewhat unusual.
Installed when the cold storage
refrigeration system was moderniz-
ed in 1957-58, these units have done
their job superbly - protecting the
compressors from liquid slug dam-
age. The units have also permitted

ing, the mold can be stripped off,
and a trowel or knife used to trim
off any excess foam. The relatively
weak foam must then be protected
by applying a layer of mastic and
glass fabric.
Following the new recirculator in-
sulation and some preliminary pipe-
fitting, the refrigeration plant was
shut down on a weekend and the old
recirculators removed. The new re-
circulators were installed, some final
foam was applied in several places,
and the plant was started again.
From a mere laboratory curiosity
about ten years ago, plastic foam
has grown into a multi-million dollar
industry with hundreds of companies
participating in many ways with a
number of different foam types. Ri-
gid polyurethane, as used for the
recirculator insulation, is one of
the oldest and most common. For
large jobs, such as insulatmg refri-
gerated tanks, it is often sprayed
on with special equipment.
An interesting variation of this
technique was used recently in the
United States. Foam was sprayed in-
side an inflated balloon-type quonset
hut to a thickness of six inches. The
balloon skin was removed, door and
window openings were cut, and a
surface-protecting coating was ap-
plied. The end result was a fifty-one
by twenty-foot building, erected in
a very short time, with excellent
heating and air conditioning insula-
tion properties. By changing the
formulation somewhat, polyurethane
can be made highly flexible.
In this form, open-cell structure
will soak up moisture like a sponge,
so it is of little value for insulation.
One use for it is in making cheap,
artificial sponges. Its principal use,
however, is for furniture padding,
where it can be used in place of
foam rubber at lower cost and with
lighter weight.
In addition to polyurethane, a com-
mon rigid foam is polystyrene. Al-
though not quite as good an insula-
tor as polyurethane, it is still very
good when compared to other insula-
ting materials, and is stronger, ligh-
ter in weight, and cheaper than
polyurethane. Planks and blocks of
expanded polystyrene foam are find-
ing wide use in the building con-
struction industry both as insulating
and structural materials. It is also
useful where high buoyancy is re-
quired, such as for floating docks
and boat flotation chambers.
The strongest foam in common
use is polyethylene foam. This is a
closed-cell foam which is somewhat
resilient, but not truly flexible. Al-
though lightweight, its strength is
so great that it has been success-
fully used as dock fender material.
More expensive than polyurethane or
polystyrene, and more limited in
sizes and shapes available, it is not
commonly used as insulation even
though its insulating properties com-
pare favorably with polystyrene.
Recently, Esso Research and En-
gineering has been experimenting
with a foam made of Esso's "Escon"
polypropylene. If successful, this
could be expected to have properties
similar to polyethylene foam.

Cost of the new ammonia plant
will be approximately $7 million: its
planned capacity about 50,000 tons
a year.
Esso Malaya, previously solely a
marketing company, opened its $13
million oil refinery at Port Dickson
on the western coast of the Malay-
an peninsula earlier this year.
The ammonia plant in Malaysia is
a further step in a worldwide pro-
gram by Jersey Standard affiliates
aimed at contributing to the increase
of food production, especially in more
densely populated areas of the world.
