Aruba's Colorful Sea Sets Stage For Film Promoting Esso Product

Aruba's lagoon west of
the Esso Club was buzzing
with activity the first week of
September as a few boats
maneuvered in circles, helicop-
ters whirled overhead and a
small plane skimmed the sea
All this served to set the
stage for making part of a
film for Standard Oil's new
product which is designed to
keep the seas clean should a
major oil spill occur.
The product, dubbed COR-
EXIT 7664, is an oil disperant
for use in eliminating the
harmful effects of oil spills.
Field tests have confirmed the
new product as being substan-
tially more effective than com-
petitive products in treating
many types of oil slicks which
can occur from vessels, refin-
eries and offshore oil plat-
The new product was devel-
oped by Esso Research and
Engineering Company. Man-
ufacturer of Corexit 7664 is
the Enjay Chemical Company.
The Esso dispersant, accor-
ding to ER&E, works by
breaking up an oil slick into
very fine droplets which then
can spread over a large sur-
face area. Slicks thus treated
disappear within seconds.
Tests at various locations such
as Florham Park, Miami and
Plymouth, England, have in-
dicated no harmful effects on
marine life.
Although filming of the
field tests were made at Mi-
ami, Houston and Florham

Park, Aruba was selected for
the scientific film because of
the greenish color and clear-
ness of the sea, its abundant
sunshine and steady trade-
winds. It's the first time La-
go and Aruba have been cho-
sen as the site for such a
scientific film.
Charged with the work in
Aruba was a task force of
twenty, representing Esso
people of varied experience
from New York, Houston,
Brussels, London, Caracas,
Tia Juana and Aruba.
The camera and cinemato-
graphic group also included
such personalities as Don and
Kathleen Renn of the Miami
Seaquarium, who shot the un.
derwater scenes in the James
Bond film "Thunderball."
They did all of the underwater
movie filming in the lagoon.
Standard Oil's (N.J.) PR
Man to cover the events for
The Lamp was Ed Gant. Still
photographers for The Lamp
were Fred Ward of Washing-
ton, D.C., who recently cover-
eI the Democratic Convention
in Chicago for Black Star, and
Flip Schulke of Miami, also of
Black Star, who came to Aru.
ba after covering the Russian
take-over in Czechoslovakia.
From Vavin Inc., New York
were here Gerry Weller, film
producer and director, and
cinematographer Larry Smith
who has won four Emmy
awards and left this assign-
ment to film Wild Kingdom
TV segments in Peru.

Refining Personnel Learn To Use

Self Contained Breathing Units

Training in the use of self-
contained breathing appara-
tuses is now being given to
Refining Division personnel.
Supplementing the canister
type gas masks now are two
types of breathing apparatus-
es: the MSA (Mine Safety Ap-
pliance) and Scott breathing
units. These new units are not
limited in their use and give
the wearer complete protec-
Stion against 100% concentra-
Stion of gas. The unit, of course,
does not protect against irri-
tation or poisoning through
the skin, which may be caus-
ed, for instance, by hydrogen
cyanide or highly concentrat-
ed ammonia. Both types con.
sist of a cylinder of compres-
sed air, valves and regulators

ing inhalation, by-pass valve,

The training is done at the
job site. The trainees will be-
come instructors to train all
Refining employees in their
respective areas.
The Scott breathing appa-
ratus has already been used
in firefighting at Lago. As
the Refining personnel com-

ing units will be made avail.

able for use in contaminated
The MSA unit contains air
supply for 15 minutes, with a
built-in audible alarm system
that will operate when a 3-
minute supply is left over.
The Scott unit offers protec-
tion for 30 minutes because of
a larger cylinder. However,
both units are equipped with a
pressure gauge with a pointer
that will indicate when the
air supply is low but still suf-
ficient to clear the area. Some
other safety features of the
new breathing units are an
automatic demand regulator
and an emergency by-pass
valve. The dry cylinders can
be recharged with pure air.

Here Refining employees get demonstration from J. Gario
(I) and S. Ridderstap (2nd, left) of Fire Section on how to
use Scott Air-Pak breathing apparatus.
