ARUBA ESSO NEWS December 22. 1969

President'o flenaage.

9fenahke di Creoident-


First- of all, I wish to extend -
also on behalf of my associates -
Season's Greetings to all Lago em-
ployees and annuitants, their fam-
ilies, and friends.
Adding to a happier season for many workers and
their families this year and for some time to come
are the various building activities in our refinery
that provide job opportunities. The most important
of these activities is the largest single project ever
undertaken at Lago: the hydrodesulfurization units
on which work is in progress. Other projects include
tankage facilities for these new plants and the new
sea berth to accommodate larger tankers.
These activities provide a greater measure of job
security for our employees as well. They will also
give a healthful boost to Aruba's economy in the
next few years.
The bustling construction everywhere in the ref-
inery sounds much like the jingle bells of Christmas.
It's the kind of music that indicates that Lago is
keeping in rhythm with technological advance.
We are proud that, in part, these projects have
been made possible through the cooperation, dedi-
cation and understanding of a fine group of em-
ployees such as ours.
Your continued efforts will help strengthen man-
agement in its resolve to achieve greater progress
for Lago and its employees, and for Aruba.
With confidence in the future and in our employ-
ees' willingness to continue contributing their share
towards progress, I wish each and every one of you
a Bon Pascu and Feliz Anja Nobo.

Six Top CYI Winners Honored; Their Suggestions Earned F. 1455

Six top CYI winners were
special guests at a dinner at
the Strand Hotel December 9.
Vice President LeRoy John-
ston presented cash awards to
Anselmo Semeleer, Pedro
Geerman, Paul Hassell, John
Williams, Albino Martijn and
Epifanio Ras.
The highest award, Fls. 815,
went to Anselmo Semeleer, a
building tradesman A in
Mechanical-Shop Zone. He
suggested to install a new type
of beacon light dolphins for
the east and west entrances
to the San Nicolas Harbor His
idea is to change the dolphin
piling from wood to steel. This
will facilitate installation and
r.pr lHs i r'inrce maintenance


9-62 crane earned an initial
award of Fls 105 for John
Williams, an Equipment Tra.
desman A in Mechanical-Shop
Zone. His idea permits saving
of the oil from the tank each
time the hydraulic pump has
to be repaired.
An initial award of Fls. 100
went to Albino Martijn, an
Operator in Process-Terminal
Division. He suggested to
make a tie-in from an 8-inch
bunker line to a fuel suction
This idea will provide an al-
ternate suction for tank No,
238 and also will increase bun-
ker flexibility and reduce ship

Ialled for installing drain

the tank farm This idea will
improve hoiu c seke,'ping and
eliminate a slipping hazard
by minimizing oil spills when
opening the Varec valves for
servicing or repairs. It will
also reduce maintenance cost,
A supplemental award of
Fls. 160 was earned by Paul
Hassell, an Operator in Proc-
ess-Terminal Division, for his
previously adopted idea to hot
tap a 10-inch line and a valve
from the discharge of 2624
pump into a pre-blend line.
This idea has resulted in time
savings as it permits more
frequent use of pump 2624
and less contamination when
blending products. It also per-
mits faster loading of ships.
The idea to install a two-
inch gate valve at the bottom
of the hydraulic tank on F-

amcal-Shop Zone, received an
initial award of Fls. 100. His
idea called for fabricating a
special bench to be used in
the Machine Shop for instal-
ling bearings on shafts. His
idea provides a more efficient
way of performing the job. It
also improves safety as it eli-
minates the possibility of
shaft slippage from vise.

No one really knows for
sure who had the bright idea
of decorating Christmas trees
with wax candles. That, no
doubt, is when we began hav-
ing trouble with Christmas
tree fires.
There are several suggest-
ions to help reduce the pos-
sibility of a Christmas tree
fire in your home:
- Do not bring the tree in-
to the house until ready
for use. Keep the trunk
in water to help prevent
excessive drying out.
- Saw off the trunk at an
angle at least one inch
above the original cut and
keep the trunk standing
in water while the tree is
in the house.
- Locate the tree away from
sources of heat and dry-
ing and away from exits.
Remove the tree as soon
as possible after the holi-

-- nf nnt iiep UlV -"jnrl e -

on or near the tree.
- Use only lighting sets
that bear the Underwrit-
e r s' Laboratories, In c.
(UL) label on all parts -
not just the cords and
use them only for their
intended purpose.
- Check the sets each year
before stringing on the
- Unplug the lights when
not in the house or when
going to bed.
- Don't overload electric
circuits. Never use a fuse
larger than 15 amps. If
the fuse blows, cut down
on the number of displays
or split the load between
two or more circuits.
- Do not decorate metallic
trees with lights. Instead,
use off-the-tree spot or
flood lighting.

Aguinaldos Bring Christmas Joy

To Many on Stages Islandwide

Sixteen Aguinaldo groups
took part this year in the ope-

out the month of December
the groups thrill large crowds
of young and old through
their Latin style carols in
various clubs on the island.
Dressed in elaborate, colorful
uniforms, the groups sing and
dance to the music of special

instruments, such as guitars,
bongos, maracas and furucus.
The groups include over 400
boys and girls. The program
is organized annually by the
Aguinaldo Festival Commit-

Lago's new sea berth off Commandeursbaai was officially
placed in service December 11, 1969 when the tanker "World
Spirit" unloaded a cargo of heavy fuel blend stock. Equipped
with three metal loading arms, the loading platform about
500 feet from shore is connected with the refinery pipeline
system by six pipelines. The offshore berth is capable of
handling tankers up to 120,000 tons. Project manager of the
4-million guilder offshore mooring facility was Allan Temple
of Mechanical-Engineering, with Alex v. d. Ven as project
engineer, Nick Ecury, field coordinator, and T. A. Trimon,
field equipment inspector.
